Anybody recognize this car? I believe it could be in the UK.

Most of all I'd like to know the manufacture of those wheels.

Doubt it's in the UK because it's a LH drive car and it's parked on the RH side of the road.

I found the pics here on pennock's... don't know the original poster of the images though.. they've just been hand-me-downs to me.
I saved them to my PC and added them to my photobucket for linking.. for this sort of situation.

I have the .jpg's that I used to upload them if that's what you mean... but all i did to get them was right click and save as from a post just like this one.

You might want to try running the originals on www.tineye.com. It's a reverse image search and will show you if the photos show up anywhere else online. You might be able to find their point of origin and a little more information on the car.

I tried using these photos but came back with nothing. I think the photobucket stamp on the bottom right throws off the search.

The extra pictures make it clear that it could be the UK afterall. The truck behind it is parked in the opposite direction throwing my initial post out the window, and it looks like a parking lot, not a road. Oh well.

355 mirrors make me want to vomit.

I also find it funny just how much the 355 looks like a fiero gt or the 90 concept fiero. Real original ferrari.

Me too!!!

Now if someone can sharpen up the white advertisement sign on the back of the truck we might be able to read the address or telephone # from it.

HI all

Reaaaalllly nice car!! I'd like to get ahold of those side mirrors, see if they can be made as 348 ferrari's... These don't look like there is an OEM bend in the middle, that my friends is worth checkin into... Last I heard, a member here, ahile ago priced 348 mirrors from a supplier, and well 6,000 or so for new ones, 1 at that price though... Hmmm...

Thanx all,

Ear-ick...

That's wrong. REG is not Regensburg, it's Regen in Bavaria!

I believe that I have a set of power F348 mirrors in my basement. Does anyone want them for far less than $6000?
