hi Farooq, Welcome aboard.
You can help us by posting pictures on the state of cars in KSA. What are the kind of cars that you normally find on the road and what kind of driving sense they have.

It would be an interesting read for all of us to know what the Sheikdom looks and feels like...

Hi Farooq, please update on which Lancia is it? I have been a very very big fan of Lancia since a very long time. Sad that they have vanished & worst that very few people know about their true value & the impeccable racing heritage.
Dream is to own a Lancer Delta HF Integrale 8V... Monster is thy name for that car.

That is Ferrari 330 GT Series 2. There isn't any model as 305 ??
Please correct me if I am wrong.
Anyways more pics of Lancia and Ferraris please .

Good to have you here farooq. Well what more can I say, you are one lucky chap to get to drive all those prancing horses and also get paid for doing that. What more can a petrol head dream of. You get to enjoy so many of the ferraris free of cost. Even the people who buy these expensive toys probably dont get to drive so many of these ferraris in their lifetime. Let us know if you get to drive an enzo. Also what is your take on the masers
