Hi all,I just discovered this site has an english section! I've been around the MV thing since 2002, at age 18, when I watched an episode on TV and found it was the coolest thing I've ever seen. Style, atmosphere, fancy cars and incredible music! After that I saw a dozen episodes until they stopped airing it. Fast forward to 2006, when I found out they released the DVDs in French language and bought the 5 seasons. First time I ever saw the pilot episode and that famous "in the air tonight" scene. I was definitely in love.June 2007 I bought a white suit, things where starting to go out of control ;-)December 2007 I was looking at the "auction" section on Miami vice.org, and came across a post about a black daytona replica in San Diego. Three Months after the car is mine and arrives in Europe. Next thing I bought is a pair of brown Wayfarers. Even worse I started sporting loafers bare footed.May 2011, randomly looking at swiss ads for Ferrari, stumble upon white testarossa. Compulsive buying, car is now in my garage next to the Daytona...Can you find me a cure for this terrible MV disease? :)

Hi Ace!I'm afraid there's no cure for Miami Vice, as far as I know it's a permanent state of 80's Miami infused bliss.:)How great that you are the owner of a Daytona Spider, and probably part of a very select few in Europe! Congratulations and if you feel like it, please do share some pictures.:cool:Welcome aboard pal!:thumbsup:

Hello Ace.Glad to have you aboard.Funny you mentioned the Daytona as I too was looking at that exact car about three years ago or so, and had actually bought a plane ticket to go look at it when the owner told me he had just sold it to a guy overseas.Congrats at the car as I studied it for some time and see it was rather a good deal. I'm so jealous!I bought the Stinger 390x boat a few years ago and enjoy it daily still to this day.There are a lot of great people here on this site and some fabulous information on all kinds of stuff related to the show. Enjoy and come back and post often. We love to hear from you.

Stinger390X, my dream would be to have the same boat as you do to go on the Geneva Lake! They are very hard to find in Europe!Here are some photos of my 2 babies, sorry for the Mitsubishi in the back, but it gives you a good idea of the proportions of the Ferrari"s" compared to a normally sized passenger car.Eingefügtes BildEingefügtes BildEingefügtes BildEingefügtes BildEingefügtes Bild

Guess one can never have enough cars and tyres ;-)These babies would have looked great at the MV convention in Paris.

May I flood you with Pictures from the Testarossa? Unlike the Show Car, it has Red/Black interior, which I find a good match with the White exterior.:cool:Eingefügtes BildEingefügtes BildEingefügtes BildEingefügtes BildEingefügtes BildEingefügtes BildEingefügtes BildEingefügtes BildEingefügtes BildEingefügtes BildEingefügtes BildEingefügtes BildEingefügtes BildEingefügtes Bild
