Bainzy knew you would be a Ferrari fan, my favorites of all time are the early seventies Daytona 365GTB, the awesome street version of the F40, for race cars the incredible 1967 330P4 and the F40 GTE or LM versions:

A few snaps of the F40:

Some pics that I took at the London Science Museum when the F40 first came out:

The awesome Corvette supercharged ZR-1:

No one knows the reasons why.
You lived each day like there was no tomorrow.
You spent those years living on time you borrowed.
And in your eyes, all I could see was sorrow.

Superb :D

The 330P4 is so sexy, you know you can get kit car versions now for about as much as an average condition 308 costs? Definitely intend to build a GT40 kit at some point.

I came face to face with a 1960's 250 GTO California this year totally by chance, the ones worth millions. Not sure it was worth the price tag but it was a great looking car. Also had a chance to spend some time photographing a couple of 246 Dino's which was great, they look much better in person than in photographs.

Got your PM by the way Dave, my reply will take a while so I haven't had chance to write it yet! :)

Thanks Richard, have you seen the Ferrari Chat forum?? http://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/
I had been offered the opportunity to visit Jim Glickenhaus and ride in his awesome Ferrari P4/P5 reworked Enzo, he also has 2 real 330 P4's which I was most interested in seeing, he has a 1967 Ford GT MK IV, the one driven by Bruce McLaren and the late great Mark Donohue, plus a Lola T-70 converted to a road going machine, plus he recently bought the Dino show car.
When I was a young lad in London I would attend the London Motor Show at Earls Court and often later the various Racing Car shows. I got to touch the still dirty fresh from it's Le Mans win in 1966, the MK II I have pictured is a replica built by Holman-Moody a few years ago.
Besides the great musical heritage I absorbed growing up in London, I also was able to attend some exciting motor racing that really set the scene for the rest of my life! I was at Brands Hatch in 1967 for my first motor race the BOAC 500, where Ferrari clinched their last Worlds SportsCar Championship, the #6 car came in second driven by Sir Jackie Stewart and the legendary Chris Amon.
I remember being in the paddock near one of the great P4's when it was started up, the sound of a thousand screaming banshees is on of the only descriptions I can use as the V-12 with that stack of open exhaust pipes.
Glorious!! I had loved racing as a younger boy before I left Connecticut in 1966 at age 11, but only has seen these cars in magazines, but to see and smell and hear these machines was a memory I will never forget.
Also my frequent visits down Ealing Broadway to Hanwell to Jim Marshall's legendary shop.
This was heady stuff to a young American boy born out in the country!.
Know you are busy look forward to your PM reply..
Here is a picture from the 1967 Le Mans race with the unfortunate Chris Amon car, that caught fire and was destroyed, it was signed by Chris and Jim Glickenhaus sent me a copy of the print he has:
Image
One can see a long tailed Porsche at the Mulsanne corner, being dug out of he sand.
If any one has played the GT IV Playstation game with the old and new LeMans circuits, besides the Nordschliefe being my favorite, the old LeMans circuit without all the chicanes, is awesome.
The legendary Lorenzo Bandini at Monaco in 1967, before the senseless horrific fiery crash that claimed his life:

A later Ferrari F1, with the bundle of snakes exhaust, a symphonic work of art in metal"

Image
One of the legendary BMW 4 cylinder turbo F1 qualifying motors that would have nearly 1200-1500 bhp!!

This is actually from one of Ayrton Senna's McLarens.
Here are the F40 LM pics I was looking for from a Japanese show:

I love to drive the latest Honda Civic SEDAN, more than the car I admire the brand name because they adopt to the new changes according to the environment.

Ferrari Enzo is my favourite. It’s one of the most expensive car in the world.
