Re: Ferrari 250 GTO

Are you sure you need to ask?

But I still think the 250 GT SWB is even cooler and prettier.

Honestly, I like the Miura way more than this Ferrari. But still, it's ultra cool.

Re: Ferrari 250 GTO

Never seen one in black before - looks great.
As the first person to only vote cool, I should explain - if I cannot reasonably expect to be able to buy and drive a car, it loses a grade. If I really wanted one of these, I'd have to paint up a Triumph Spitfire and it wouldn't be the same!

I don't understand what you are going on about, but I defend you right to vote 'cool' rather than 'sub- zero'

Re: Ferrari 250 GTO

The Miura is the coolest car in the world. But even that has its God of Cool. And when the Miura is at its altar, it's the GTO it worships.

The GTO is even cooler than the most bracing winter day during the ice-age.

Factamundo.

i'd love to talk you around the Miura mate and why it's cool. Even if you still don't agree - which is fine - i'd love to try. but then cool cars are like great jokes...they ain't that cool (or funny) if they need explaining.

i guess what i'm trying to say is that i'd love to be able to open you eyes so that you too can appreciate the Miura...but needing to do so suggests that you just won't get it. (that's not meant as a criticism, btw - if you don't think it is cool, then you don't think it is cool. At the end of the day, what floats our respective boats will always differ).

But you better vote for my G-Wagen!

A driver is always faithful to a car that's always faithful to its driver.

Sometimes in the darkest hour, love comes shining through.
Then it doesn't seem so far from me to you.

Re: Ferrari 250 GTO

The Miura is one coool car but THIS is the daddy of cool!!

However if I should ever win the Lottery it'll be an F40 in the garage cos I love em! And a Martini Integrale for the daily runabout

Oh and maybe an 8c spyder for nice days... (I wish on both counts!)
