    I'll stick to road cars (well odd serial number cars rather than even numbered competition cars at least). Obviously this list changes on an almost daily basis.

    1. Daytona
    2. 365GTC
    3. 330GTC 'Princess de Rethy' Speciale
    4. 4561SA
    5. 400 SA SWB open headlight.

    If we're including even nos., I'm surprised that no-one lists a 412P or it's ilk. They are the swoopiest and among the fastest. Of course at my age I'd need two men and a boy to get me in and out, not to mention well nigh undriveable on the street.
    Odd nos. only:
    250GTO s. 1
    250GT SWB 61 Comp (my old 2689GT, please)
    275GTB/C (9000 Series), preferably one that's never been upside down
    330LMB
    250GT Nembo 1777GT

    275 Nart spyder. How can you NOT include this in anyone's list?
    250 GTO. Same thing. It's impossible to not include this.
    312/67 F1. You gotta have an F1 car.
    512 Modulo. Is there a more wilder show car?
    ferrari laferrari fxx k. Probably the best exclusively track car ever.

    It would be nice if someone could clarify "Vintage" end date.

    Regardless, here is what I have:
    1) 1964 250 GTO
    2) 330 P4
    3) 365P - 3 Seater (before McClaren used it in their F1)
    4) 500 Mondial - rare 4-cylinder model
    5) 250 GT Lusso

    Fair question- "vintage" is defined by the section where this thread exists.

    Texas!
    My problem will a list like this is I'm a driver, not a lover. Frankly, I have no interest in museum cars. They're pretty and all that; but if I can't drive them, not interested. For example, the four best looking Ferraris in my opinion are (1) Cal Spyder, (2) 250 SWB, (3) 250 GTO, and (4) 246 GTS. I have been offered the opportunity to sit in an example of each and, because I'm 6'2", long waisted and have short arms, declined each time. There was no way I'd fit. The oldest Ferrari that does fit is a 275, and I loved my 330 GTC. So I would have to start with: 275 GTB, 330 GTC, 365 GTC, and 365 GTB/4. After those, I'd have to skip to a F40. There's no way I'd ever fit in a Boxer.

    YMMV, but's that my story.

    Thanks for your lists. They have introduced me to cars I've never considered.
