Big congrats Gengar! Dont forget to post a ton of pictures and videos when you get it. Also, hope you have a nice air conditioned garage for it. No street parking.

Thanks for the comments guys. I've been set on the color since the videos of a Pearl Blue one at Fuji surfaced pretty early on. People really like this color combination and often compliment me on my decision, but I just tell them I cheated.

Still aiming for delivery this week. Naturally my car arrives during a really busy time period for me - probably the busiest I've been in several months. I haven't been posting on here much either.

I'm not really that comfortable with the idea which is why I didn't do it on my F. I like the idea of the protection, though...

I built a custom heating system in my current place and that was just for my F. I guess I may have to do A/C now... but I'm gonna tell you, warm weather is a long way away here.

Thanks for the compliments!

Thank you gengar for letting us share your new toy with the world! You have great taste, that is my interior combo of choice! It definitely fits the "F" theme. I can't wait for you to take pics of it on your side of town.

So lets do it...more pics!


What it looked like when Gengar's LFA arrived...












Removing the straps and unbolting the stoppers:






Doing the first inspection:








Powering up LFA #047 for the first time in the USA:

Gengar, any significance to the allocation number you chose? BTW, I got to see that red one at McGrath, while my car was in service. Pleasant surprise to say the least. Gorgeous is an understatement. Definitely a top 3 color to have!

I absolutely hated that red LFA... meanwhile back on the fence again
Maybe I should go with fresh green and be done with it.

No significance - I asked to be added to the list as first available production.

I definitely prefer Pearl Red to the normal Red (just don't tell McGrath that). The normal red is just a little too aggressive for my tastes, even more so IMO than say Ferrari's Rosso Scuderia which I also dislike.

Now Fresh Green, that is an awesome color. Definitely among my top 3-5 premium colors, so I hope you're not joking.

Starting #047 for the first time since its journey across the Pacific:




Slowly being backed off the special crate:






Parking #047 next to #057.










Final inspection before being loaded to the transporter for port processing.






Going out into the open for the first time in America.






The transport driver carefully positions and loads up #047 into the transporter:
