    The fenders on the far left silver car look odd, perhaps it is the angle, but are they original?
    Thank you for sharing a great trio

    Yes, original and genuine, one of the few European versions with flared wheel arches.

    Marcel, sorry to bother you. I just found out that dinoregister.com closed down. A buyer wants to know the history of my car. Do you have any idea who has the database for the old dinoregister.com? If not, would you kindly post any history you my have on 1974 Dino 246GTS (USA) s/n 08038? Thanks very much.

    Welcome to FC Lance. Don't know if I understand your last question correct so maybe you can elaborate a bit on the "tip jar" issue?

    Best regards Peter

    Marcel are you certain of the January 1973 completion date? It sounds much too late to me, thanks.

    Thank you Marcel for the information on 3098. i have attached a picture of the plate from inside the driver's door. I bought the car in 1986 from the previous California owner and it has been in a private garage ever since. So you may want to update the information on an Asian collector.

    Thanks Shawn,
    I have extensive records of Mr Conger’s ownership including his business card as a airline pilot and the canceled check he purchased the car with ! Incredible to have these original pieces of paper after 47 years.
