Is that mileage or current value in Yen?

If mileage, how many of those were driven shirtless?

I believe that both. Probably good 50,000 miles.

That the same one you painted with a roller and a bottle of milk? Looks pretty good from 100 yards.

Is that the value before or after the fill-up? It matters for many cars. My 996 doubles in value with a tank of premium...

Heh. I almost bid on a 69 2+2 earlier this week.

Found out that they aren't remotely worth what the plain coupe and (especially) the roadster are worth which made it not as good of a deal as it first looked :(

Back in the day (80’s) one of my college friends restored an E-Type Roadster ... pale yellow with a black top. That car was absolutely stunning. I lost touch with him; I hope he still has it.

I don’t know if the E-Type is the most beautiful car ever made, but Enzo Ferrari thought so. And that was after he made the 250 GTO, which wasn’t exactly ugly in its own right.

Yeah those 2+2's do not hold a candle to the roadsters and standard coupes. The standard coupe always has called to me, was always wrenching on e-types or 120's at my buddies place. Learned a lot on those cars...especially to wheel the torches over right off the bat to scare submission into that old hardware :lol:
