Well if that F-car can't get it done for him, nothing will.

That stripe down the center of this Challenge Stradale is calling me. It's hideously ugly, yet I'm drawn to it like a moth to the flame.

Peep this F40 on eBay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/F40-3...item2eb38bbdba

This is a USA-spec F40 with the extra black trim front and rear:


I heard these extra pieces just pull right off. Just what I heard.

The interior is a little weird though:


The white shift knob doesn't look factory to me. I could have sworn the F40 had a black plastic shift knob, but I could be mistaken.

This F40 also has the red button next to the fan dial. I don't recall ever seeing that before.

And the center console has two weirdo things on it, one right next to the shift gate and the weird black thing more forward. I've never seen these before.

But homeboy has the F40 luggage:


This is the first time I've seen the F40 luggage.

This particular 328 GTB is one of my dream Ferraris:


That thing is spectacular.

Note the color. It's red. It's not kustum metallic red. It's not Darth Vader black. It's not banana yellow. It's just red.

Note the roof. This is the Berlinetta variant and not the gay ass Spyder variant.

Note the 80s air dam or sun shade or whatever you want to call it:


The owner left it as it came from the factory, however dated it might have looked in the 90s. He didn't paint it red to color-match it to the body.

I love these shitty Carrera mirrors:


Black interior:


He didn't do the tan interior. The red 328 GTS with tan interior was by far the most popular one. I prefer the red 328 GTB with black interior.

Notice there are no carpets in this one. I'm guessing this owner would rather have no carpets than to have those fucked up carpets with the giant red prancing horse on them. Good call.

If that dash looks a little empty to you, that's because it is. No stereo:


There are some Ferrari owners who "upgrade" the stereo to some George Lucas THX home theater surround sound system. These are the worst.

Other Ferrari owners just replace the head unit. These chumps are next in line.

Higher still are the owners who leave the shitty factory stereo in there.

Highest of all are the owners who ordered the car without a stereo all together. A Ferrari has an orchestra right behind the driver. There's no need for a stereo.

Spare and tool kit:


No rinky dink spare for this owner. He put in the full-sized spare:


If he gets a flat, he changes the tire rather than calling Auto Club. He has the full assortment of shitty factory tools and worklamp:


This is a real deal gran turismo. The car is tip top and very beautiful too.

The only fuck-up on this epic machine is the Ferrari valve caps:


That's gotta be a joke or something, right? The owner was joking here, right? How could he maintain a vehicle in such tip top and factory pristine condition for 20 years and have Ferrari valve caps?

The World may never know the answer.

I was at Munich Evolution in Seattle and came across this wonderful 512BBi replete with Campagnolo Center Lug Wheels.

I dig that BB. It's not all fucked up with the botched US-spec bumpers and huge side mirrors like on a lot of BBs. The giant USA side reflectors are there, but they're not that bad.

But hate what he did to that BB. Kustum shift knob and pedals:


When his BB felt dated to him, he thought he would kick it up a notch with the aluminum shift knob and F40 pedals. This is a mistake. The BB came with the shitty plastic shift knob and rubber pedals:


This extinguisher doesn't look right:


I've never known Ferrari to put the extinguisher right there in the middle of the bulkhead like that. It has that ExPo feel to it. It looks terrible and it blocks the luggage.

The Mk3 with the triple side gills has always looked like a great white shark to me. Compare these two:


You have the same bulbous body, lifeless eyes, and side gills. The two are a perfect match.

The 250 LM is a favorite of mine-not sure about that video but it appears to be a darker red than usual Ferrari red.

The Shimano Dura-Ace of supercars:


I love how you hear La Wally when the Ferrari appears. It's not just a car.
