I did a photo shoot at a car show today..."Auto Expo."  Mostly new cars but a few others here and there.   Most of the shots I took i could identify by model or name, but this Ferrari is unfamiliar to me.  Anyone know?

It looks like a Ferrari F40.

F40 was close and it got me on the right path.  It appears to be an F-50:

Remember the F-40 that Amir Rosenbaum ran on the salt in 06? He owns Spectre Industries and is reworking a streamliner that Kenny Hoover was to drive.

Thanks, Pork Pie.

Kool info about Rosenbaum's liner, GH.  I look forward to seeing it.

About the Auto Expo photos: I spent 2 hours shooting, then 14 editing and creating the html pages.  But they're on the server:

If ya find any glaring (or even not-so-glaring) errors, please let me know.

Ray, some shots of a F-40 - we had to coach the tow driver to get it on the truck w/ out scraping the bottom off!

I don't remember if there were visual difference between the F-40 and F-50.

Nice shots, David.  What's the story on the rollback?  Don't tell me the F-40 used Lucas ignition and the rain shorted it out.  Smiley

There is a visual difference.  The belt line on the F-50 is at an angle almost clearing the top of the rear wheel opening.

Hi Ray - I done a quick look.....I'm not sure with the name Ferrari California - to my opnion is this a Ferrari 599 GTB (Fiorano) which is a strong modified facelift* version if the Ferrari 575 Maranello - the California is the Spider version from the 599 GTB with the convertable roof. The soider version from the 575 was called Superamerica

*In reality is the 599 a complete new designed car but the base idea for the body shape was the 575. The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti looks similar, but is a much bigger car in a 2+2 seat configuration instead of the 2 seater 599 and 575.

By the way, there is big different between the F40 and the F50 - these are two totally different design shapes.

Ray, I will send you a PM the next day, when I got the picture again through.

Sorry, never seen the two side-by-side.

Guy drove the car on a tour and never realigned the front wheels from race spec.  when a front tiree wore through and flatted, we stopped to call a tow truck.  I was the only one w/ a cell that worked (Dolores, CO) and didn't feel I could just leave those folks without some local connection.

Flatbed to Alb. NM? $1200.  Not much more that a new tire -IF a new tire had been available.

best,
