    Someone here was pretending they had a GTB/C lately :)

    I love the looks of the shortnose, but the improved stability of the long nose probably makes the extra $$$ worth it.

    Nice 275 GTB, but I have a question ... what's the white car with the door open in the background of one of the pictures ... 917 Porsche?

    Best wishes

    I'd probably never drive it fast enough for the aerodynamics factors to come into play. If I had the bucks for a GTB I would probably want the 2 cam, 3 carb engine just for reliability and driveability's sake. In other words I'd probably be on the phone with Mr. Sheehan right this moment!

    The white car in the background with the door open is a long tailed Porsche 908. They ran the long tailed bodywork at Lemans in 1969. Lost to the GT40... by about 4 seconds or so.

    Bill, why do you think so? I was with Terry on this one (908).

    908 would have 15 inch wheels.

    This car is a 907 and it won the 24hours of Daytona in 1968. 1st 24hour race win for Porsche.

    It was driven by Vic Elford

    No. The car is well known and still raced competitively to this date.

    I do get to touch it on a regular basis though. :)

    The 907? Maybe

    The 275? No. It has been tucked away.

    That looks like the 907 Long tail that ran at Daytona in 1968.

    Wow Wayne, that trip down memory lane was a hoot. Before my time, thank goodness. It is interesting to see how much a certain poster has NOT changed.

    Holly cow, that just got my blood boiling again 2 years later! I can't believe Horsefly and Bruce were acting the way they did. I agree we should stick together and protect each other, but sometimes jumping right out of the gate is just rude. Over time we eventually find the frauds, no reason to have a guilty until proven innocent attitude. Everyone knows now that Bill is the real deal and some of those users back then look pretty silly.

    The last 275 GTB I had I bought at 13,000 and sold for $15000.
    If that gives you any clues as to how long ago that was!!!
    Sold the thing because it blew blue smoke so bad!! Great car though.
    Nothing like the sound of a V-12 Ferrari !!!!!

    Another thing, 2 years later after reading that thread, don't you think the tone of our posts and quality of our communication is better now? I know that's just one thread, but we sounded like a bunch of kids. I personally think this is a more enjoyable place now than looking back then. We also have 7,000 more users than 2 years ago. Amazing

    I agree. It was interesting reading that thread. Geeze Louise, doesn't anything on the Internet ever go away?

    But yes, it is interesting to watch a community, and this is a community, grow and change over time.

    Lol! As I'm sure Bill remembers, it was that thread that pushed me to leave F-Chat "for good!" Hey, everyone's entitled to go off the deep end once in a while.:)

    (BTW, what was up with Bruce posting in lower case?)

    It looks like the advice Bill was given to hang onto it for a while was validated!

    LOL I can't believe you didn't realize which car this was. I recognized it immediately. Wasn't Solly sniffing around this car? Three or four F-chatters expressed interest in buying it at the time.

    Yes, things sure have changed, haven't they? This is still a great place to be, just different. The focus has changed a lot. I bet I could build a good case for changing the name of this site to BikiniThread.com!

    Ferraris? What Ferraris?
