    I meant the one I linked to in the original post. The Backdraft Racing one from Naples Motorsports.
    And I havenít switched cars too much over the last 5 or 6 years. Not that I havenít wanted to. I just havenít had the funds to!

    Gotcha. That's a nice looking ride. What I love about these things is that they can have a modern engine in them with a classic car look. And the fact that the car is only around 2500 pounds and has 480 HP means that it has a power/weight ratio of 5.2 #/HP...which is holy shit territory (similar to a 3500 pound Z06 with 650 HP). Of course there is no traction control whatsoever...so I'm sure the thing is hard to drive well!

    Hi guys, I've missed this thread, I do like the 360 and its on my mind lately, still trying to convince myself, the cambelts etc can be done from behind the seats, I saw a guy replacing them without taking the seats out.

    I'm also looking at something, was also considering a Jaguar F-type but I don't know, already some horror stories I heard but they are nice !

    I've seen some Cobra replicas next to the road, standing, but they vary, very unusable car in my opinion.
    All the best

    PM Frenchman - He has a 360 and has first hand knowledge.

    I've done about 20 timing belt services on 360s over the last year or so....I've never seen the need to remove the seats, although some folks do. It's not a big deal, eitherway.

    Just for the sake of discussion, and to liven things up here a bit, what do you guys think these cars should sell for? Asking prices all seem like market highs from a couple years ago.

    All seem overpriced by $10-$20k, with the F1 possibly being the biggest stretch. Personally, I prefer the F1 in the 360, particularly with the CS TCU installed.

    Radioman is on the money as expected!
    #1. F1 is priced far too high. Yellow is also a difficult color to move. Most love it or hate it.
    #2. Nice well optioned car. Resale red. Daytona seats, modular wheels. Why would a manual need a clutch with <12k miles?
    #3. Far too high. Resale red. Stock starfish wheels.
    #4. Again yellow. Nice options. Like 430 wheels.
    All are 04 models. Latest ECU, TCU(F1) etc. Market is very soft for all Ferraris including 458s! 430s are dropping, puts downward pressure on 360 values.
    Make a reasonable offer. Would not be surprised if dealers accept to move inventory!

    I've noticed plenty Spiders on the market.
