    HI all,

    Im new to these forums so Im not sure Im posting in the correct spot. My question is fairly simple. When I was born my dad owned a 365 california spider # 9801. He sold it when I was somewhere around 2 or 3 years old but it was his favorite car he ever owned (for obvious reasons). I am curious if anyone knows where this car is and who owns it. I have lots of history on the car that people may not know - such as the pop up light motor was replaced with one out of a triumph because no one knew what they were doing when he was repairing the car - or the fact the car was once painted white with boat paint by the original owner. At any rate all help is greatly appreciated and I would LOOOOOVE to see the pictures of where the car sits now. :)
    Thanks in advance,
    Jeff

    It was the 1967 New York Auto Show car. I don't know much else.

    Ah I actually knew it was at one of the auto shows, but Id really like to find out who owns it now. The last photo I have of the car is from when autoweek (I think it is) did a small article on the car and my dad in Chicago.
    Thanks

    Prancing Horse magazine is the quarterly publication of the Ferrari Club of America.

    I've joined recently, so started with issue #99 or 100. Here's how you do it:

    "Can anyone post or PM/FAX a copy of this article to me?"
    TIA (Thanks in advance). Now wait for prompt reply!

    I don't think Prancing Horse has an on line archive. It's more or less a club publication that started out on a mimeograph machine!

    Check under "Literature and collectibles" on this site, post there looking for it.
    Back issues are pretty available and if you just want a copy somebody will volunteer I'm sure. Sorry mine don't go back that far!
