    my final analysis, after much digging, is that NOBODY is cutting 550s.

    pavesi in milan only does tops for barchettas.

    there are companies in CA and FL who CLAIM they cut 550s but, if memory serves, none of them could or would clarify this.

    there are a tiny handful of cut 550s in the world that i am aware of (maybe as few as two?) but nobody here has been close enough to them to know how they got that way.

    doody.

    PS: i was very discouraged that they didn't announce a 575M Spider at Geneva. money on the table, boys. money on the table.

    Doody,

    Here's a twist. I was at FoLG's service dept on Friday and a Vanquish there had a custom moonroof / sliding cover job done. It looked *extremely* nice, although I didn't get to drive the car to see if it rattled or the like.

    I've been considering this as an alternative to the cut 550 idea, as it seems far less possible to botch up badly. Although I agree, a retractable hard-top 550 would be the hotness! Maybe we should both throw down? Of course, given your weather, you'll have to keep the car out here... and hey, we know you need an office here anyways! :D

    yup, the red one keeps coming up like a bad penny (and it can be yours for the BARGAIN basement price of two hundred large (a '98 no less!)). beyond that one and the sultan's car, i am unaware of any other cut 550. doesn't mean they don't exist, of course. but as stated previously i don't think anybody is actually cutting them anymore - if anybody ever did besides the factory for the sultan.

    anybody know the guys at bevhills classic? please give 'em a holler and get the scoop. we're all interested.

    doody.

    it seems that the 550 spider that someone spotted at BH during the superbowl is the same at BH classic no ?
