I basically have two questions as a starting point for this discussion. 1. In the European car magazines that I buy, I have noticed that there are advertised many rare vintage Ferraris for sale, some by auction and some by private dealers. In this month's octane, for example, I see advertised multiple 275s, including a GTB/C, a 340 America Spyder 0196A, 250s, and so on. It seems that there are many MORE vintage Ferraris for sale (or at least advertised) in England than there are in the United States. The only sources that I frequently check are Michael Sheehan and Symbolic's vintage section, although some other dealers might sometimes have some nice offerings. But, my question is: do you get the sense that there are more auctions or more rare Ferraris on the common market there than here. If so, WHY? My impression is that they have more auctions and more for sale from dealers, particularly, say, for a 250 SWB or other old racers. 2. For modern Euro spec cars, such as a 360, there needs to be a conversion to bring them into the United States. Can someone who knows please tell me what the process is for importiting, say, a 250 or 275 into this country from Europe. Since they are old, they obviously don't need bumper conversions, or that sort of thing. But, what kind of permits, taxes, other duties, etc. are involved? What sort of extra costs can be expected when buying a vintage Ferrari in Europe to bring to the States?
