    I have a Giallo Modena 355 F1 gts, I love it. Stands out in the sea of red at club meets and alike. :) I also have the 360 Challenge wheels pictured above, just haven't put them on yet :(

    I love the way yellow 355s can look with some minor mods (challenge grill, some wheels) but I just can't bring myself to own one. It's a shame because there's so many nice ones available on the market.

    My first Ferrari was a 1995 Giallo Spider 348, very late production. If you look at my avatar, it is in the pic under a matching cover. I owned Ketchup and Mustard for a few months (1996 RC GTS and the 1995 Spider). I bought it cause it close and cheap. My first Ferrari, did not care about color, only shopped price.

    Now 5 years later, I have become much wiser ;-)

    Would you paint your black GTB a different color?

    I could.... would not be hard..... but I don’t believe in color change from original personally, I like color to match Data plates. Wrapping vintage Ferrari paint is a bad idea, cause it does not come off easily without damage quite often. I guess I could repaint it black / Nero if it did lift. But I think it is pretty good looking car in black. Who knows. Maybe I paint it white?? I bought two seats to build Daytona’s for it. May do something in leather and ultra-suede for fun? I am going to fix bolster on original seats, cream them up, bag and store. Will drive in my “beater” seats - non Connelly leather. I am getting vents restored, titanium wheel bolts coming and I need a few other items. Let’s see what tech says next week :-/

    I need to get it off the lift and drive it more ;-)

    I’d only paint my car for white or blue. Rare colors only. Otherwise, probably not worth the effort.

    But if you paint your car don't you trash the value? Or say if ferrari paints it then it's considered OK? What's the consensus on that?

    I’d say value would drop, but if the color is unique enough and the paint job was done to a high standard, it would be worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

    The painted white CS still sold for $160k on BAT. My opinion is if the car was sold normally outside of an auction to give potential buyers time to look at the car in person to see the quality of the paint job valuation could be different... depending on the quality of the paint job of course.

    Oh. And the CS was painted a Porsche white color, not a Ferrari white.

    But say you would send your car to ferrari classiche in Modena, and they paint it, does that detract from value?

    Something I've never understood. You take a older 12 cylinder car or even a 308 and do a bare metal repaint in original color and it a big plus. But as the cars become newer any thing that isn't original detracts from the value, the question becomes "what is it hiding?"

    When they become true collector cars. I think that is a ways off. Too many low mileage, garage queens around.

    Don't really know. I recall where Wayne Carini did a ground up Daytona and part of the process was to bring it back to OE color. As I recall, the car was painted red at some time.

    I see you are asking questions.

    Has anyone laid eye on this car? I'm not paying for a PPI on a BaT car that might have someone with very different opinion of value also bidding. I do wonder if there is "value" in this being an eye sore. Everything "appears" fixable. Do we know how long the stipe has been on? removing that should be simple. I'd want challenge speedlines anyway, so the wheels are a non-issue. Seat expense to fix is high. But I'd really like to find a carbon bucket or something else to go in it anyway. It might need headers when you service it - debatable if you service it now or in 3 more years. Missing cats will make CA smog a challenge. I think this car is exiting "bargain" territory, so maybe its just better to watch...

    CA smog has become increasingly difficult... even illegally.

    Also, when buying a car out of state, in CA, you have 30 days to register it before penalties start incurring. One will need to find cats (for a 2.7 specifically) get them installed, car smogged, and hope other errors don’t turn up, and register in a timely manner. If the seller can get working cats, that helps streamline the process and save you $2k.

    How common are cracked taillights on our cars?

    Almost inevitable. The globes run hot and eventually the lenses develop cracking starting from the inner clear circles.

    Geezus. The 355 is a supermodel who needs constant attention.
