    Mr. Niles begins his "xtreme sports" phase . . . As always, you are an inspiration, Ed.

    Now you can relax and REALLY concentrate on buying and restoring great Ferraris. Can't wait to see the next project. :D

    Big fan of Ed.... early in my journey with vintage ferrari's he was very helpful and responsive. Early retirement at 95 made me smile

    Ed: most people, including me, regard you as a legend in the Ferrari world.
    I know you've had many of these fine cars but, if you could have ANY ONE of them back, which would you choose?

    Bob, that's he question everyone asks. Maybe 206SP 002.Or maybe the LM winner 2689GT('61 comp 250 GT). Or maybe 275GTB/C 9057. Or 250LM 5095. They were all different. Oh, and 0515GT Zagato

    Hi, Ed - thanks for the response.
    When I lived in upstate NY, I occasionally visited with Carle Conway.
    He showed me some older Ferrari (FOC??) magazines and I'm pretty sure pictures of you and a Ferrari were on the cover of one, stating something to the effect "I'm keeping this one". Possibly a 250 SWB? Was that 2689?
    And a comment about a comp gas filler cap - "your wallet could fit down there" and it was stated: "I think it just did". Was that you?
    I'd love to see a photo of the Zagato!
    Best Regards, Bob Zambelli
    ps - is Carle still around? Last I spoke to him, he was in the Tucson area.

    250 LM 5095 or do you mean 5909 (Bono/Knoop/Epstein/etc.)?

    Was that the FOC magazine with a Chuck Queener watercolor on the cover? I have that one somewhere.

    ED: How many times did you own that Zagato 250?
