    One of the reasons F40 along with virtually every other car in the modern era is designed for the fuel pumps not to run when the motor stops. I see that safety measure bypassed all the time by very unwise people and naturally if there is a large leak and it is still running that safety system is negated. Nothing is perfect and even a full firehouse of men and equipment cannot save every structure but it is far better than not bothering to try.

    Nice car last time I saw it. If it has been in the same hands I'm sure it still is.

    91097 is still a very nice F40, it has been fully & regularly maintained the last 6 years by Paul B @ Ferrari Newport Beach so I am quite familiar with it.

    Fantastic, interesting to see the number sticker still there in 1989.

    I'm wondering if there is some kind of List to which F1 Drivers new F40's have been sold. I'm sure Marcel knows it!

    The lists exists, yes.
    There is also a search function on fchat.

    In this article is a link to 'Dr...Tr...' (the original article). Fchat does not allow links to '**********' for some reason I guess? Or even the mention? Something I am not aware of. Moderator, feel free to edit this if necessary.

    I still would like to know if the green F40 in those euro-spec, Italian plates, is street legal in CT.
