wow  :eek:  :doh:

are there any other black 360's in Adelaide? G7 is the only only one i've ever seen

There's at least 3, but G7 is the one I've seen most frequently.  Last I saw it was a month or so ago though - parked out front of Botanic I think.  Been confirmed from a couple places that this is the G7 car.

And wtf - who is that confused looking geezer? :p

I guess he's the young guy who had the crash.  A fright can do that to you.  :p

The G7 car? I see it all the time outside European resaurant on the parade. A youngish looking guy in his 30's also drives it. He also has a F430 that's for sale I think. If it is in fact the G7 car I don't think he's going to get the $239,000 price tag he's looking for - http://www.carsales.com.au/used-cars/private/FERRARI/360/details.aspx?R=5819581&Make=FERRARI&__Ns=pCar_PrivateSpecialFlag_Int32|1||pCar_ImageCount_Int32|1||pCar_LastModifiedDate_DateTime|1&__N=4294966380%2085%20834%20285%20257%201216&State=South%20Australia&distance=25&silo=1003&seot=0&Cr=2&__Nne=20&trecs=7&state_id=85&__sid=11D07272CE71

At first I thought maybe it was someone speeding and lost control. But I have to agree that crashing into an object that can't move does a fair bit of damage. Also the stobie looks like it hasn't suffered any structural damage and in most cases stobies don't get damaged unless a car is travelling at high speed, say 80 km onwards.

Wonder what goes through your mind when you know that's coming?

With a glancing blow down the side of a car you might have at one stage thought "It's all right, I'll make this", but dead centre like that??  :scared:

Yeah, great invention.  Ever wonder why Stobie hasn't had anything else named after him?   :doh:

Great invention and nothing else being named after him? I sense a great deal of sarcasm  :D.

I always thought Perth had a great design, all the electrical cabing under ground. Ie no poles of any sort - well that was the last time I looked around a decade ago. Although, it is a bit of a nuisance having to have approvals to dig and having to register where all the electrical cables are underground.

If i is G7, bit of a shame in that he used to drive the car rather than leave it as a garage queen. Regardless, gotta feel for a man who has just written off his Black 360
