Greetings: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1981-Ferrari-Mondial-All-Current-Ferrari-Maintenance_W0QQitemZ4608227189QQcategoryZ6212QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem This is a car that interests me but I think that the lower end cars like this one are going to be overbid compared to NADA values. I threw the NADA "average" price at it because I would have been willing to pay PPI dollars to see if the car was a good buy at that value. I would like a reality check with some of you guys with experience as to the clarity of my thinking here. (Fatbillybob?) With a car coming out of a dealer collection and only 16K miles I'm not sure what the seller means by "all current Ferrari maintenance done". Why would a new car dealer collect a Mondial 8 with a ding in the door, a wasted headliner, and tired upholstery? Would he take it out of storage to change belts and other time sensitive components every 5 years as recommended, then put it back on blocks? Who cares how much tire tread is left, tires that old need to be replaced. Presuming that one put a major into this car for starters, then what happens to injection components in a car essentially unused for 25 years? How about the seals at the "other" end of the cams, clutch and brake wearing surfaces, leather, hoses and other rubber stuff, sensors and black box parts and on and on. If a guy paid $12,850 for this car he'd be $22,850 deep before he drove a mile. Then he'd still have a Mondial 8, a ding in the door, a trashed headliner, and 14" wheels. Still, a new Dodge Neon goes for more and would be far less enjoyable in the long term. Wow. I'm glad I got outbid. What do you think?
