    Good for you and all the best for the rest of the job. Any idea of when you think you will complete?

    I'll know more when I visit Fast Cars next, but I anticipate mid-late 2018.

    Care to share what kind of driving/touring plans you have for this lovely car once finished ?
    Should offer (tens of) thousands of pure Grand Touring pleasure miles after such a thoroughly & well done restoration.

    What a dream! I’m sure it hasn’t been without some stress and anxiety though! Looks fantastic! Love the color!

    I'm not sure yet. If my past history is and indication, every time I do a full restoration I end up selling the car shortly after. We'll see what happens with this one. I might make the move to Orange County, so maybe Freeman and I will cruise.

    I restored a dino 3-4 years ago. Color Azuro metalizato. Love The chiaro color.
    I since sold mine, but might jump back in something similar.
    This car is not easy to restore...
    Fantastic Job

    Gorgeous color, proper shop for your restoration, wishing you well at Pasadena!

    I had a Maserati Bora in Ischia Bleu which is very close to your color. The lines on your Dino show it well

    When I bought this car, it had been painted black. I agree the original blue shows off the car much better.
    If I rcall correctly, the car has your ball joints and bushings on it, that I purchased from you years ago.
