    Many of the Nashville crowd has asked where my new car is and the answer is that it is now finished and ready to ship. I don't know how lucky I will be on the shipping , clearing customs and then trucking down to Atlanta. I think it will be the end of May. I have been anxious to get it and I have contacted a few guys who already took delivery and they seem quite pleased. I hope it is a keeper.

    Since the 16M is arriving just in time for spring driving bliss, I fear your 599 will be neglected. Although I don't have a lot of free time, I will squeeze my schedule to free up 2 hrs of driving time per week to keep the seals and gaskets lubricated. Weekends would be best, and as I am on this tight schedule, I won't be able to take time to detail it or gas it up, so please have those things taken care of during the week. Thanks aren't necessary, this is what friends are for.

    Crawford said he would help with the TR, btw. It takes a village to keep your cars going!

    Can't wait to see it. This should be a keeper.

    Well, seeing as how it is spring, and seeing as how the weather is most suitable for convertible-type cars, and seeing as how you will be preoccupied with said 599 in air-conditioned pollen-free heaven, and, most importantly, seeing as how it was you who introduced me to this most prestigious community, I would have to feel incredibly sad should the 355 get left under the carport. Terribly sad.

    :):)

    This is kind of like trickle-down economics. I like it.

    You haven't popped up in a while, sir. How are you doing?? And how is the hood?? I was in the neighborhood a week or so ago getting a computer worked on at my old house.

    Hard to argue with the logic of that! I'll hand ya' the keys as I crank up the 599!! It's all in Biscan's court now; he'll be so giddy with the new pony he just might fall for it!!!
    I have been a lil' absent lately, but I will be at Belle Meade for the show and look forward to seeing you there. Lots to catch up on: Bobby's roadster, Ting's arrests and Bentleys, maybe Bob's new 16M, gotta thank Scott for fixing my car, which he may not even know about, etc.

    See ya'll soon!

    I think this will definitely be a keeper, especially because of the rarity.

    You got in Scuderia red, right?

    Red, right. This trickle down thing makes me think of follow the yellow brick road.

    After much anticipation we are now in the U.S. It arrived and now it will go to customs and have to be shipped to Atlanta. Don't expect it till sometime next week.

    Cool cool.

    Be sure to post pics if you can Bob...I will be out of the country until the tenth, so this will be my only way of seeing it until then...

    And just a general question...all this "stage" talk is just referring to what stage the car is in the production/delivery process, right??

    Never heard of the stages before.

    Yes, all this stage stuff is about completion in the delivery process. I finally got the thing nearly here.

    Let me know when you are picking it up. I've got a buddy that does photo and video work, we could come down and document the delivery for you.
     
  26. robert biscan

    robert biscan F1 Rookie

    Well the car is still on a truck somewhere and should of been at FOA yesterday. It may be delivered today or tomorrow but in either case it won't be ready to go until the first of the week. I will get it on Tuesday if I can. I'm ready.

    robert biscan F1 Rookie

    Well it arrived and is now at FOA in the last 10 minutes and is being unloaded. Maybe pick up Friday???
