    Would of course do a full PPI before purchase but if anyone's interested in checking this car out for me I'd greatly appreciate it -- just curious on appearance closeup and perhaps how it drives if the dealer lets you. It's 1972 Dino 246GT #04900, Metallic Blue. Looks nice, dealer says engine was rebuilt <2 years ago and gearbox rebuilt last year. Dealer is asking $68k which seems high for a coupe, but I'm assuming they'll negotiate.

    Already checked out the cars' history at the Dino Registry and don't see anything out of line. Havent done a carfax check on it yet.

    It's at Motorcar Gallery, 715 N. Federal Highway, Ft. Lauderdale, FL. 33304. 954-522-9900.

    Thanks in advance if anyone can check it out or knows this car!!

    I have been a lurker on FChat for a long time and actually posted quite a bit a year or so ago (ended up buying a 95 456), but seem to have lost my old account -- so now it says I am a Rookie with 2 posts. :(

    oh well!

    Thanks I was going to ask for PPI recommendations too. It says Tim Stanford rebuilt the gearbox on it last year -- so sounds like they had a good mechanic do it!

    Tim Stanford is honest, communicative, and has owned a Dino for darn near 30 years. He's currently working on my '74 and has been super. Can't say enough good things about him. Good luck, it looks like a beauty.

    haha, oh man, that's the first time I've actually laughed audibly from reading a post on FChat.

    My brother went to school there and never left. He met his wife there and has lived in in Salem ever since.

    I tell you, the drive down to see him is BEAUTIFUL. That's some nice state you've got there.
