Definitely random...

Decided to have a different type of fun while I was home from work one time. Red Rock Canyon / Blue Diamond Highway in a Ferrari 458:


At work, the Consulate General was a history buff, so we had to go recon a few cool spots that he wanted to see before his tour was over. This was a pre-Roman aqueduct with a bunch of Sumerian glyphs still really well preserved. This spot wasn't touristy AT ALL, and was basically at this point just a random guy's goat pen. After this, we had to go locate the marker for the Battle of Gaugamela. Our CG was obsessed with Alexander The Great. Pretty cool:

Nice x2!

My dad is at Barrett Jackson and found 16 FJ40's down there. This one struck me as odd - sign says "rare forward facing rear seat." I thought all 40's had jump seats from the factory? Was there ever a factory option for a front-facing seat, or is this just uninformed BS on an aftermarket bench seat?

I think only late model LXs had forward facing rear seats

This isn't a picture, obviously. But I didn't want to start a whole new thread or something… So I thought it might fit in here.

I had a bit of a "fail" this past weekend up in Grand Lake. lol
