A few pics from work....

So about 3 months ago I changed jobs, I thought it would be nice to share some photos of what I get to look at and go out in most of the day

Needless to say, the novelty hasn't worn off yet!

Anyway, here are the pics - taken with my iPhone but you get the idea....

Nice. For a minute I thought there was a 288GTO in there, my all-time favourite, but it isn't Got to love the F40 though...

I'm sure you'd get over it pretty quickly . Who needs to indicate when you're travelling that fast .

It has 288 wheels though!

I remember our local Fezza garage getting a 288GTO in - I spent a loooong time gawping at it! Stunning car!

Dad's mate spun his 308GTS (dad had a 928 at the time) at Goodwood when him, my dad and his mate hired it for a day. The car hit nothing but the spin bent the chassis and it was a write off - DOH!!!

That's why on first glance I thought it was a 288. Closer inspection reveals the wheels to be replicas anyway.

I knew I should have written 288 "style" wheels - can't get anything past you!

Saw the one I mentioned being test driven a few times - my cycle route to the station (then to school) was along the road they tested their Ferraris. A couple of Daytona Spyders, the odd 512BB, plenty of 308s and 328s and a few Testarossas - always brightened up my day!

Dad had a 308GT4 - bit of a pretend Ferrari (he wasn't that keen) but it made a nice noise. Inlaws had a 355 - more of a proper one although still flimsier than a sheet of bog roll.

I don't know why the 308GT4 was regarded as a pretend Ferrari (although people do regard it that way) as it had a proper V8. One could argue that the iconic 246 Dino was "pretend" as it didn't have a V8 or even a Ferrari-designed engine. It didn't have the prancing horse at the start.

Dino was stunning so maybe just got away with it?!

308GT4 was a bit more "challenging" although far prettier than a minging 400i and 412 monstrosities of the time. Mondial was also a bit of an eyesore IMO.

I think the problem with the Mondial was quite simply the existance of the 308. As it matured, the last Mondial (which carried the 348 40-valve engine mounted longitudinally) was quite pretty.
