I'm sure it's a wrap...so not harm, no foul.

I'd rock that for a couple months.

I'm kind of the same way as you on this, the Ferrari lines do play well with this, but it's a Ferrari.

Hmmm...that mouth, wrong proportion, wrong position, it needs to be redone or removed...otherwise EXCELLENT.

Designwise, my cup of tea. Why go back to Ferrari red, yawn...like everybody else

Would look cool on a 356

Did the US and the Italians ever do any joint ventures?

Certainly unique. I kind of like it, at least as a one-off. Thanks for sharing!

Back in 2000 during a redeployment flight, I stopped at an Italian airbase for refuel and saw an Italian F 104 Starfighter land. I had remembered seeing pictures of them as a child in the 1970s and was amazed and thrilled to see one still in service, flying.

Here's an image clipped from the video I made (VHS-c camcorder).


Alright, enough nostalgia. Back to my brake flush/caliper swap.

Couldn't resist....



Nicknamed "The Widowmaker", one engine, tiny wing. Very unforgiving but really cool.
