Current owners? There's only one current owner I see posting occasionally here, well - son of... "F1Prova" or something his username is, his dad has a yeller CS that I took heaps of pics of a few months back. His dad is a top bloke, really friendly to talk to and passionate about the car without being anal.

good to hear.




Oh heres a story:

My best mate was off to get lunch, and spotted a broken down car. There was about 10 cars behind it, owner was in the passenger seat. My mate, went up and offered to push it up a hill with him to a workshop just up the road. No one else bothered to help, pathetic. Anyway they got it up there, walked around the front of the car, then he realised it was an older ferrari :P... He had no idea!
I know there is some Testerossas in town and 355's, but not sure what this one was. It was red though. He said the owner was very thankful for the help...

I went in the afternoon, saw a 996 GT3 and a 944, but didn't get a chance to go in the evening when they were loading due to other plans. Did you go?

Saw a mondialish car the other day, red with the black strakes, not sure the exact model and couldn't be bother searching. First time I'd seen it on the coast.

Also saw the 'F599' 599 (red) yesterday down at Kurrawa, we walking out of the park when I pointed it out to the missus and her comment was, "Gee doesn't really look special enough to be a Ferrari".......pissed myself!
