    I had never noticed the different boot line on the 412 but now you mention it I can see it clearly and it does look slightly ungainly

    You can still pick up something tatty for less than £30k, but it'll cost a lot to get it up to spec. Remember, of course, that it's basically a Daytona in a different suit. £50k is the mark for something useable and smart. £100k is the very best. (Though the ex Keith Richards 400i sold at auction for about £250k a couple of months back, setting a new record for the model).
    Another almost-might-have-been for me....

    I was looking for one again, still got the ad pics somewhere I think - the 365 GT4 2+2 version, RHD, for sale in Ibiza, £10k, I dreamt of that drive back but in a rare moment of reality bites decided it wasn't a good idea, living in the rough-end of Bolton as I was. Had recurring nightmares of the Ferrari script on the boot disappearing every morning...

    And it was brown too, so that put me off.....

    Think I spunked £7k on a 1963 Cadillac Convertible instead, honestly, the **** I've wasted money on......
