Talking Took the Ferrari for a Drive to Algar......(56K roll over and DIE!!!!!!)

well, I know I've shown this car before on here......but my Grandfather and I went up to Algar Ferrari/Maserati/Alfa Romeo today, for a look at the showroom. I thought it would be cool to show you how the trip went...nothing special for you maybe, but this car is in the will as MINE.....so yeah, it's special to me [:D). My grandfather is the original owner. He bought the car 30 years ago at Algar, for $31,000.


It's a 1977 Ferrari 308 GTB, 4 webber Carb's, new inspection, Clutch, newer Exhaust, points, and plugs.....runs great ....I have movie clips, but I have to upload them. For now enjoy my picts. I am a Ford man, but I'm also 1/5th Italian

Camera used is a new Canon SD600.....does a nice job......

Enjoy....I did.........

Fresh wash:












Radio used to work.....


Fun Meter:


DON'T miss a shift......




he needed a new muffler....so he found a USED Exhaust, only $1,400......


Badges:




the drive up: (it's crazy how LOW this car is.......everything looks soooo high.....)



THE SHOWROOM: (WOW!!!) I turned the corner and turned into a 5 year old kid.......lol....I had never seen either of these 2 cars before......awesome....

The F40 was NOT for sale......








what, no leather???? I GUESS I can deal with C/F EVERYTHING.....lol


345's or something....GEEEEEZE......




Rest of the Ferrari side:
some 575/550's and a 308/328 GTS only $55,000......


just your everyday run of the mill XJ220......PSHHH...I have 3 or 'em...........I think there are only 12 in the country or something....






more FAT tires


lil' old V6........always thought it was small.....the turbo's aren't even that big.....but it has 2


that diffuser is HUGE under there.....


the GTS interior....it was an 85 I believe...


Snouty........lol....575M



the Maserati Side.......


she's waiting for us.....


just an F430 outside.......same color as my Grandfathers......REALLY cool...

thank GOD it was stick

Time to go!!!


trip home picts...I like these...I went crazy on the angles.......

everyone is so HIGH!!!!


side scoops.....




headlights up...so people can SEE us.......


Rear shot over hatch


me:


almost home......


Back in her spot....



Hope you enjoyed it....I definitely did....

Really cool, I've never seen anything like that in real life.
I love the XJ.

did you notice the handles on the F40 are just strings to pull the doors closed, its a no non sense car.
