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.

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.

I guess the bottom workshop picture would be Tribute Automotive HQ after a quick brush with a large broom Geoff .

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?

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?

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

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.
