    Nice photos Robert.
    Could the registration of the black 400i in the last photo be FYW559V (#28905)? Is it clearer in the original?

    Hi, it is FYW600V. Photo is from 28th March 1991 if that helps. Robert

    Hello Longwheelbase, please can you see my question about the FOC Concouse Testarossa that you posted before? Do you know the reg plate of the car on the right of the three Testarossas that you posted before?

    Many thanks
    Robert

    Going through my late Father's records here is a photo of the Daytona we unearthed from back when it was his. The date stamp on the back of the photo says February 1979.

    I was there too Robert, with my wife and then 9 year old son and some friends. First FOC event I ever went to, first time I saw an F40. AFAIR the California Spider had only arrived in UK from USA the day before.

    I too have loads of pics of the day and need to scan them.

    No idea about the 288GTO although I too have pics of it

    Hi Francis
    My first FOC event too. What a coincidence! I was interested in the modern cars of the time, so didn't take photos of the rows of Daytonas and 250SWBs, just individual cars. Do scan more photos in, esp shots of multiple cars!
    Happy Friday!

    Dear Ed

    I am unable to say if #10851 was once registered GTB275. It probably was. But the car in the photograph is #8221.

    I'm sure I was there!!! I remember the GTO being hammered around - there were lots of tasty cars there such as a 288GTO, F40, F50.
    I got a few passenger laps with a guy called Martin Shaw who had a Ferrari Indie garage in Knutsford - he used to maintain and race in the Ferrrari Championship; took me out in a race prepped 348(?) Challenge car and a F40 - belonging to either Messrs Hertherington or Bowler??
    It was a long time ago now!!

    Of course it is - that'll teach me to gaze only at the number plate...

    288GTO 55715 was gutted by fire in 1997, was it ever resurrected ?

    Mid-288GTO discussion: back to the RHD Daytona Spyders. We still don't have a totally confirmed photo of the last RHD Daytona Spyder, 15969. Here is the advert from Thoroughbred and Classic Car from Sept 1987.

    Now all I need to do is get a photo of the damned thing!
