I'm actually tempted by the main Miura book, but 400 sovs.... that would get me at least four Maserati spark plugs....;)

Edit : lovely, very early Urraco here, I've watched this so many times....

Manuel, the guy selling the car in the vid is a big Iso fan and has done a few youtube films on them, he owns a very nice Lele and Fidia and also owns (or owned) the silver De Tomaso Deauville seen in the background of the Urraco clip.

Six months,not sure if that's good or bad.My bother is working from home and finds he's doing more hours than when he's at the office with proper working hours to keep to .Hopefully you may find the time to drive your fleet even if it's only round the block.Great choice replacing the Espada with the 328,easier to maintain ,more compact and easier to store and probably more fun to drive.You have the perfect pair,one for the track and one for that road trip. There is a guy on the "Motor Sport review of Ferrari 308 Vetroresina" thread ,His P. H name is "Ettore" and he also has a 76 308 GTB and a 89 328GTS and CGT2 also had the same two Ferrari's at the same time,not sure whether he meant now or in the past so would seem your in good company. You may or may not have already watched this You Tube on the "Ferrari Online" channel with Colette featuring the best 308 GTB Vetroresina i have seen ,funny enough in the same blue i sold to John Swift ,well worth a look if you haven't already.
Yes, it is both good and bad, good because more time at home, bad because it is difficult to get a separation from work and home. I congratulate the other two people with the 308 vetro/328 combo!
Thanks for pointing out the film, that car is just beautiful.
I also enjoyed the Uracco films P5B pointed out, especially the yellow one restored in the single garage. There was also a Petrolicious video where the Uracco owner talked about "traumatic bonding" which I quite liked. The joy is not the same without the pain, said Badly Drawn Boy, perhaps with this topic in mind....

For all you Espada fans, here's the latest Iain Tyrrell video. Harry Metcalfe's car is back on the road. Sounds and looks amazing!

Fabulous.... cloud9

I wonder why the black and silver rear plate has been replaced by a modern reflective yellow one though...?

...... Beautiful Lamborghini Urraco in a stunning dark blue being driven along the A40 (Oxford - Sunderland Avenue) today - Tuesday 14th c11:30ish ...... being used as a Covid -19 Shopping Trolley? ...... It was great to see it and such a 'stand-out' in the traffic! Well done to whoever for owning / driving it, anyone on here?

It might well have been the top or bottom one of the three ...... I was driving and I didn't catch the reg. number, but I don't recall the number being too personlised.

Love these outrageous bright colours,i think it was a shade brighter green when i stored it for Anthony,more like the Miura green,either way it looks great,looks even more stunning in it's new shade of green in the photo's at the NEC on the Lamborghini stand that P5BNiJ posted.My lasting memory from Kermit was that i felt i was in a 2nd world war fighter plane with the exhaust roar and spitting back on overrun .

Thanks. It was the same paint, these are just bad photos, being a picture of a picture, it was really bright at the time. I love the new colour too, rather more sophisticated!

Ah my mistake, I didn't realise it was repainted after I sold it.

I think it's me who got confused Fessia fancia (not difficult these days) In one of your post's i thought you said that Dave the guy you sold it too was a professional sprayer but when i looked back on the thread it was the guy you bought it from who was. What's that number of your psychiatrist again ?

No worries at all re the slight confusion.
The psychiatrist has found "much additional work" to do on me but I'll pass it on when that work is done :-)
