    Default Dino, fresh out of restoration

    A friend of mine in the states has had his Dino restored after a very nasty incident with an icy road and a telegraph pole........ he just sent me these pictures as the car is now returned to it's former glory and looking superb, and his licence plate is very apt! Best thing is he drives it too, 300miles last weekend.

    Thought that Albert/tablet counter etc etc may like to see another example

    No Ferrari Badges, No Headlight Covers

    Just as it should be.

    I love the way they can make up plates from state to state in America. They pay a few hundred dollars, we pay thousands and still can't make up what we want

    Its a shame more people don't drive these cars.

    On my trip back from the Targa Florio i put 850 miles on mine in one day. Left Monaco at about 10am and was indoors @ Hertford just gone Midnight.

    Stayed at 80-90mph all day long, didn't miss a beat.

    Think he'd like to see some pics of your trip if you've got any, I first met Bob at Goodwood and have stayed in touch since, he's a big Dino fan.

    Glad to hear yours is running so well, where can I find details on the Targa Florio rally, I guess you would reccomend it.

    Less than $100 actually.........$40 in Texas. IIRC

    I'm cooking up some good ones for my two, once maintenance schedule is caught up to date....

    That looks great. No front number plate either to spoil those fine lines.

    Must get mine out more often. Only been out a couple of times so far this year, and currently broken with an ignition problem - but that should be fixed very shortly.
