I am putting up my f355 replica up for sale. First of all this is one of the best bodies for the f355 replica I have ever seen. It is just as wide and long as the real f355. Look at other f355 replicas that were not stretched and they are funny looking. They look very bad in my oppinion. This one will look like the real deal once you paint it. Headlights flip up and down and work. The interior is finished. All the gauges are in working order. Taillight bulbs need to be put into housing, very easy. It doesnt need wiring of any sort. I took out the bulbs to do some sanding and I was going to paint it, but then decided to sell. Didnt paint it so next buyer could choose their own color. As you can see on the pictures all parts to finish are included. Frame and top material are included to finish the top. Front grill as well as all badges and side mirrors are included to finish. The tires have 90% tread left and are like new.
Wheels look amazing and are replica 355 rims.
Title in hand registered as a fiero.
Rear engine compartment cover needs hinges and that is the only part you will need to finish.
This car does not need too much work to finish but I don't have the time or money to paint it at this time. Just give this car a paint job and it will look spectacular!
The car runs, drives, and shifts perfect. Engine is very clean and has only 20 k miles on it. It has a new air intake on it. Very nice exhaust sound my neighbors always tell me it sounds like a real ferrari.
It has air conditioning and heat.
I have over 12k invested in this car not including labor, so please understand I am practically giving this car away.

When you're born, it's impossible to know what sort of cars you'll be into as an adult. Your dad might be into old Mopars while your mom prefers a Ford Mustang. You, on the other hand, might end up being a fan of English cars (that was the case with your author, at least). Regardless of which vehicle type, era or marque you prefer, though, it's usually possible to trace back to the exact moment you fell in love with them.

For Frank Mandarano, his love of all things Maserati started at its birthplace in Italy, before spawning into a passion that saw him found a club and take possession of four 3500s over the years. One car in Mandrano's one-make collection stands out, though - a rare 3500GT that was imported into Mexico in 1960. It is a sweet sounding and gorgeous coupe to behold, making it the perfect subject for the crew at Petrolicious. Scroll down and have a look.
RM Auctions has some very special and expensive Italian sportscars of the 50s and 60s consigned for its auction in Monaco on May 10, but the one that currently carries the highest estimated value at between 4 and 5.5 million euros ($5.5 - $7.5 million) is a 1956 Maserati 450S with some very interesting provenance.

The Maserati started its life as a six-cylinder 350S that Stirling Moss drove in the 1956 Mille Miglia race. Unfortunately, the brakes failed, and it crashed into a tree and nearly into a ravine. Moss and his co-driver weren't injured, but the car was kaputt.
Maserati repaired it and used the chassis as a test mule for its new 5.7-liter V8 racecar called the 450S. It featured an extended wheelbase to fit the larger engine and a new body with a single seat. The racer hit the track again at the hands of Moss and Juan Manuel Fangio in the 1957 Buenos Aires 1000 KM but retired with transmission issues. Later that season, it crashed again at the 1957 Mille Miglia at the hands of driver Jean Behra. After that, the car sat around the workshop until it was sold without an engine in 1965.
Kenny Rogers' country classic The Gambler is right about two things: you gotta know when to hold'em and know when to fold'em. A former Maserati salesman in Singapore is learning that lesson about when to step away from the table, after being sentenced to 33 months in prison for allegedly gambling away a customer's deposit of 350,000 Singapore dollars ($280,800).
According to Asia One, Allan Tan Buan Yuen was selling a Maserati in 2011. He told the customer that the car would take six months to arrive and cost 650,000 Singapore dollars ($522,000). While that may sound high, cars in the Asian country are notoriously expensive.
Yuen asked for a deposit of 150,000 Singapore dollars ($120,400), but instead of handing the money to the dealer, he placed the funds in his own account. Apparently, the customer didn't notice, and over the next few months Yuen received an additional 200,000 Singapore dollars ($160,400) towards the car from him. Clearly, this ruse couldn't last forever, though. When the buyer eventually inquired about his Maserati months later, Yuen admitted that he had already gambled away the entire fortune.
