Each one, teach one... Ferrari Fiorano 355 F1 Spider
Ferrari Fiorano 355 F1 Spider - Number 25 of 104 built
There was a member on ShowCarGarage.com whose signature line read, "Each one, teach one", which I always kind of liked.
A couple of weeks ago, a new friend of mine, Mike Sage, asked me to either detail his Ferrari Fiorano, or teach his detailer how to properly polish the paint on his Ferrari Fiorano. He had recently displayed his Ferrari Firiano 355 F1 Spider at a show and noticed in the sun that the finish on his Ferrari didn't look as good as he though it could, and certainly didn't look as good as a car such as this should look considering its prestigious marque.
This particular Ferrari Fiorano is Number 25 of 104 built. Only 100 of these cars were imported into America, it was named after the Firiano Race Track. It has an engine that produces 400 horsepower and after being taken for a couple of hard accelerating passes, believe me, this thing moves out!
Inside this airplane hanger the paint looks pretty good.
To get a better look at the true condition of the finish, Mike drove the Ferrari out of the airplane hanger and into the sun. The time was approximately 1:00pm and the sun was high in the sky lighting up the finish for a more accurate revelation of the true condition. Below are some photos that have been cropped and resized, following each photo is a a section cropped out of the original, but in no other way changed or modified. These second photos cropped out of the original will give you accurate view of the true condition of the finish on this Ferrari.
