    I remember seeing *11001* in Toronto Canada back in the early 1980's. It was a strange thing with the 275 style nose but the guy said it was a Ferrari prototype. The car was in a repair shop owned by Remo Ferri on I think Keele Street. They also had a Ferrari V 12 motor stripped down and I remember thinking how tiny those pistons looked compared to big American V 8 pistons I was more familiar with. The best part was seeing a Villeneuve F1 racer car in the small showroom there!

    Seeing the name of my old friend Joe Alphabet brought a smile. His original name, of Eastern European extraction, suffered from such a paucity of vowels that it was unpronounceable to most of us. He had a great number of interesting cars go through his hands, and was responsible for the first of the GTO-like bodies for Datsuns.

    Still buying fast, stylish cars at 82 years old! That's great!

    Congrats although is 328 is a bit tame considering a whole bunch of your prior ones.

    Dear Ed,

    Sounds like a mid-life crisis! 😊😊😊

    Absolutely wonderful and as noted above, truly inspirational !!!

    Sort of reminds me of a dear friend who recently at that same age, after having been a life long bachelor and seemingly always a "chick magnet", decided to drop all of his three !!! (& all considerably younger) girlfriends simultaneously to have more time to enjoy life his way.

    My hat's off to you too, Mr. Niles.

    I think that you should have got a 308 even though they have slightly less power
    and a parking brake that does not work, but they are prettier: sharper lines. And
    they also handle a little better to my taste.

    Hi Ed,

    What is the name of this color? It looks like Rosso Rubino but I suspect it might be something different?

    Thanks for the help.
