    Jack Croul purchased 0432 M at 1999 RM Monterey.

    Prior to that, it went from Sachs to Antoine Midy in the early-1990s. I was actually right behind it on the drive from Rome to Maranello during the 1997 50 Anni factory celebration when it suffered a minor carburetor fire while being piloted by Midy's friend, Maurice Sauzay.

    Symbolic Motor Car Company acquired it during the late-1990s, who shortly thereafter sold it to Talacrest. Talacrest then resold it to Peter Agg. The car was then reacquired by Symbolic less then one year later, whereupon it returned back to the USA, at which point it was consigned to RM Monterey later that same year.

    As you know, Franco, I have had a number of 4 cyl Ferraris, mostly derelicts. How many years have I been waiting for the book, I wonder. Now that I am near the end of my shelf life, I've been trying not to buy any more. But let me know when it's available. It seems as if it will be one of the most thoroughly researched. I send my respect and best wishes to you and Antoine. Ed

    That used to be right but it is not anymore. And - contrariliy to what writes the "Teuton Flingueur", wbaeumer - it is not Franco and Antoine who parted on that and it was much more than a project...
    I am really sorry for that, and explain my sincere regrets to so many who helped. To begin with the youngest, Ed.
    Ciao

    as a response to your insulting post here I sent you a PM. You should improve your manners...
