    Wait, you smell that?
    I think that job is called being a billionaire. I tried it once, but didn't like it so much.

    i worked on a house once for a guy who collected rolls royce phantoms. he needed a place to keep them, and a place to stay while he showed them at the concours d'elegance in monterey. also a billionaire. i don't know what life is like for people like that. they're on a different planet.

    Same planet ... different world.

    I love the Concours -- I got most every year.

    In the garage thread - wherever it is - I mentioned having the original Ferrari tiles that Enzo comissioned for the factory, and how, eventually, I'm going to incorporate it into a dream showcase garage. Well, this (not mine) sort of gives the idea (though my design is going to depart drastically from this) - notice the yellow tiles in the floor? Those are they.

    Nice. The car closest to the camera, is that a 288 GTO? Plus I don't see a GTO Evoluzione there - serious omission IMHO [​IMG]

    Yes, a 288 GTO. And the 250TR is not original.

    Peter K's new custom 612 (in signature pozzi of course) is also sick.

    The torpedo ports are a distraction and ruin the aesthetics for me. They make it look like it's storing up nuts for the winter. Otherwise, it's a gorgeous car.

    What are the engine specs?

    That car seems to have an automatic transmission.

    yeah, i noticed that too, i was like "maaaaan, where's the clutch?"

    however, i suppose that fellow owns enough ferraris that nobody's going to call him out on picking an automatic transmission for his latest one

    It's paddle-shifted. That's not quite the same as automatic. It's a formula-1 adaptation.

    Kalikow's 612. Subtle but really changes the car IMO.

    is it just me or do the front lights look like eyeballs?
