Mmm, a Daytona....one of the Robin Hood SD1 or TR7 based cars?

Sorry, really meant to say the proportions of the SWB are a credit to you Chris.

While Geoff is waiting to have his SWB finished, are we are all waiting to see how good it will look we can at least drive it "virtually" in the lastest edition of GRAN TURISMO 6.

More reference photos
 
Some interesting photos of a bare shell. Wonder if my local Fiat dealer stock them.

I think you'll find the top pictures are of the Superleggera version, while the bottom pictures are the Ferrari mechanics' maintenance schedule guide for the $12,000 minor service it needs every 50km or 10 days.

Don't tell Chris or Geoff will have the same service schedule with Tribute!

Nice, was that a number you've had on retention for a while or did you buy it recently?

If it's a recent purchase, do you mind if I ask who from and how much?

casamolino 27th January 2014 17:04

Afternoon Mister Towed , just bought last week for 360 plus the xfer charge from an Ebay seller , this is a link to a current advert from him
http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/jazmx-82/m...&_trksid=p3692 , the 360 was a lot less than he was asking , i was surprised he accepted it , Geoff .

Out of interest, if Geoff forgot they were left on and got stopped by an awkward plod, would is the worst that could happen? Also, is there a typical fine for this type of thing assuming it's a genuine mistake and there is no misrepresentation of characters except white on black?

y cymro 27th January 2014 18:03

You had a bargain Geoff, or will you now be changing your name to Franco?

Yes that's the usual way, but what are the worst consequences of having black and white plates on a post 93 car, or having small plates if you left these on after a show by genuine mistake. I understand that it's a fine and that DVLA may threaten to stop you using the registration but I've not met anyone who's suffered this.

Many years ago, a local bloke drove round for years with the Colin Chapman registration DAD10 on his car without consequence. But that was before easily shared computer records.

That'd be the VDRS - vehicle defect rectification scheme.
