    The wonderful thing about Preston was he let the car "live" people could sit in it take all the pics they wanted,A true car guy.

    Don't want to hijack thread...MIL lives a few miles away so I pop in 1-2x a year.

    Great story + pix about how this car was runing hot at LeMans or another race, so they took the 1960's equivalent of a sawzall and hacked a 2'x2' hole in the hood.

    I assume it improved the cooling considerably, and there's no trace of the repair on the outside...

    Because Racecar. LOL

    A yellow F50 will always be my favorite Ferrari road car. F1 derived NA V12 and a manual transmission. Mostly analog, actually. And it looks properly outrageous.

    Without question... the 1967 Ferrari 330 P4

    Not only the greatest Ferrari of all time but undeniably one of the best car designs of all time.

    Assuming funds were practically inexhaustible, I'd by:

    1989-1992 348tb, keep it stock and maintain it as a ≥98-point show car.

    A second 348 to put lots of hard miles on, with upgrades/enhancements to personalize the driving experience.

    550 Maranello for more luxurious trips or nights out at restaurants.

    F50 - visceral connection to the V12.

    308 GT4 - they're neat.

    Testarossa - might as well have the iconic side strakes too.

    Manual F430 - last of the manual V8s.​

    There are no current production Ferraris I am sufficiently enamored with to buy, even if funds were not an issue. The "value" is more of a supply/demand issue. If you're fortunate enough to be drawn to cars that had higher production numbers and/or are out of step with what most people want, you won't need to spend crazy amounts to get what makes you happy.

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    Ferrari 456 (first series): very clean lines, very subtle in non red, very classy, NA V12 manual ~ best engine music ever, very usable, mechanically reliable... for me the ultimate of the ultimate brand, Ferrari.

    Very similar, and from the same group of 8 fantastic cars, of which 7 still exist, but this is a 412P (#0850), the concessionaires version, with detail differences, to the works 330 P4.

    I'll play.

    I would love a pontoon 250 TR.
    I would love a Series I PF Cab.
    I would love an early 250 TdF, preferably in French racing blue.
    And a GTO because why not.
