    Seela and I chatted briefly with the owners of this car, all the way from Newcastle, they’d had it for decades

    white 308's are rare because they got repainted red (or black) in the 80's. There were 3 or 4 around up till then.

    Because 355 owners are living proof that man descended from the apes.

    Moretti's not the only 355 owner, you know.

    Yeah.....

    Bit hard to be 100% accurate, from what I can work out but of the 44 Australian glass 308s there were approximately 4 white. The most popular colour was Azzurro at 11 units. 2 Pino Verde, 2 Grigio, 3 Giallo, 3 Blu Dino, 2 Oro Chiaro, 2 black. Just a handful of red ones. One day I'll work out the others.

    Just dug out some images of #19649 in it's original exterior colour, Bianco. This 308 was featured in Octane magazine many years back.

    Is that Adrian's old car? Looks lovely. I don't know why you feel the need to own 4 glass cars. Are you trying to corner the market?

    Yes, Adrian's old car. Imagine the flange that's been in the passenger seat of that!

    I don't know, you know I like multiples of things.

    The paint code 20-W-152 is Bianco Polo. I like it very much. All of the Fioravanti designs seem to look nice in white IMO.

    There can’t be that many Adrian’s that have more than one ferrari, I think I may have one of “Adrian’s “ old cars

    Hello PrawnBoi :D:D:D

    Was for sale around 2008, only two white ones left, guessing this was it, Glenn Coad was selling it.
