What to do with threads on replicas?

Discussion in 'Vintage (thru 365 GTC4)' started by Brian C. Stradale, Apr 15, 2004.

Where should threads on replicas be posted?

  1. In Vintage (if a replica of a Vintage car).

  2. Leave them in Ferrari Discussion (not model specific)

  3. Bump them to Off-Topic (they're not Ferraris)

  4. Add a Model-Specific Forum called Replicas

  5. Add an Off-Topic Forum called Replicas

    There's a dozen or two threads on replicas... mostly 250 GTO's, of course. Do you Vintage guys want those threads here? Or not interested?
    On-going, where should replica discussions end up being archived?

    Man, it's really hard to say.

    The whole spectrum of replicas runs from the lovely Daytona replica (to which a recent thread was started ) to the most egregious Fiero or Pinto based monster. I would guess the vintage devotees would like to see quality projects but might be nauseated by the latter.

    Since one man's junk is another's treasure I don't know how to draw the line.

    I would think that the vintage guys by and large, are a fairly serious lot and would not like the clutter of the junky replicas.

    I guess common sense might segregate the good from the bad and a reasonable poster would slot appropriately.

    From what ive seen there seems to be a lot of interest on this subject so why not create its own section.

    If we're discussing a particular GTE or 330 that has sadly been converted to a replica of a GTO, etc., sure. We can discuss that here. As for the rest, take it somewhere else!

    I'm with Wayne - if there is a GTE, PF Coupe, 330 or 365 that has given its life to become a replica, that info is appropriate here.

    I agree completely.

    And if it's a non-pontoon TR replica, please let me know the details, so that I can buy it, and then at least I'll be quiet about replicas on Ferrarichat. (For a little while.) ;)

    The incorrect curve at the base of the windscreen is a give away to the car in the photo being a fake. In fact that windscreen looks like a Datsun Z windscreen ...

    Compare your model to the photo and you will see the differences in the bottom corners of the windscreen.
