    It is Niki, not Nikki.
    Nikki Beach is somewhere else.

    Does it look like a "GTO"??

    Come on, try again.

    I think he means GTO Engineering Revival car. It's not a GTO engineering revival car. Not sure what this one is based on though. Bad, but not as bad as the BMW Z3 based replicas from the UK.

    You can always tell the GTO Engineering replica SWBs by their mis-shapen grille. Amazed that they didn't simply template an original grille for reference. Here you see GTO Engineering replica vs 2917GT (GTO Engineering image from Car and Driver, 2917GT image from Petrolicious)

    They copied a real 250 GT SWB, 2129GT, but unfortunately after the nose had been modified from how it was originally. See post here and then scroll down.

    I'd say what a shame but at least now we can pick the replicas out of a crowd. Grille surround is asymmetric and wobbly - even more so than the modified 2129 grille. I'd be disappointed if I were a customer, but then again I don't care much for replicas.

    John is my spirit animal. As a younger guy (30), it's nice to see other younger guys who are just at enthusiastic about vintage Italian cars.

    330 GT 2+2 Drogo Speciale. Don't know the c/n. Another of the Drogo in period 330 GT 2+2 re-bodies like the Navarro Speciale or the ex-JayKay shooting brake.

    Per Marcel, I stand corrected- Drogo body not mounted on a 330 GT, but a 250 GT SWB Comp., 2209GT. Body later removed in subsequent restoration to original SWB body and Drogo body then mounted on a 250 GT PF Coupe chassis, 2065GT (pictured above).

    Hi, nice to see a 275GTB with something else than chromed Borranis, but which wheel are those? Campagnolo "Starburst" or something else? I think the "square hole" Campagnolos were the most common 275GTB wheel at the time, right?

    Cheers!

    Starburst, which are correct for a shortnose car.

    Starburst wheels also came on some early Long Nose 275 GTBs.
