    I believe it is a 79. I haven`t been able to talk to the owner, he has been out of town for a week now. The plaque on the door jamb says manufactured in 79 so thats what I`m going by. Anyway, the pics are pretty bad since I didn`t know he had gotten the car yet until I arrived so I didn`t bring my camera just my phone. I was very pissed. I washed it with ONR and then waxed with BF GEP and then OS. I will probably do some light polishing later on but he just wanted a W&W for right now. Sweet ride. 1100 HP twin turbo Testarossa engine. Don`t know what internals are done to it but its very nice.

    The Corvette had some light polishing done to it to take away a few buffer holograms (OP with green edge pad on pc) and then OS. Next week I will use some JW CJ and CG, just didn`t have time this week. I had the camera this day, wish I had it for the Ferrari. Here are the pics.

    Now I see the reason for the wide tires on the rear of the Ferrari.



    Nice work on the vette as well.

    Wow nice work. Those Ferrari tires are freakin wide! What did you use to clean and protect the wheels of the vette and what tire dressing was used?

    Thanks all. Yeah, that ferrari is pretty sweet. I can`t wait to hear it. SERIES1 the wheels were washed with ONR. Presoaked with sprayer and then washed. He didn`t want me to put anything on them cause he said he has some wheel wax at the house(i didnt bother to ask what he had) and the dressing on the tires is Auto Magics Magic Dressing.

    Pretty insane car that Ferrari is! At first glance, it looked like a kit car though!

    I thought the same thing when I first saw it. Then I saw that plaque, the blurry picture is the one I took with my phone and the clear one is one I found on the internet. It says the same thing minus the chassis # which is different of course. I came home and was looking around the internet to see if I could find pics of that car to see if it was a kit or real, thats when I realized it was real.
