I am glad you are having fun with the car. I purchased a 2007 Shelby GT500 in red with white stripe. I have a small picture in the office that Peter did of the Red GT40 and my other Cobra 427 painted alike. I would make a great picture to have all 3 cars in one. Such is life. The red is Rosso Corsa or Corso which means deep red or strong red. Your car is painted with a Red that will not fade in the sun It is not available anymore in the USA.
I'm not sure if I told you, but it got the 200 mph award at SAAC 31. I had a group of Ferrari guys standing around the car at a private show. They were trying to decide what the color was. As you know, it's corsa rosa. I'm sure you have similar stories with this car and your Gulf car.
