    Can you expound upon this at all? Was the 'skew' intentional?

    I doubt it was intentional, I think that in the manufacturing process, in the molding of the front hood panel, the DS edge should have been rounded off or tapered downwards a bit more.

    Ah, I see. Thank you for the explanation. I've seen you mention it once or twice and now it's something I look for on every 288. Cheers :)

    Is this the one that was seen during the GTO meet in Spain with slicks on?

    Ferrari Dealer who delivered this car seems to be Sport & Tourenwagen of Munich and it was S&T's tradition to have the German version of the DMV get all their newly delivered cars have the prefix M-ST...

    As my memory serves Manfred Irber was the fellow who ran the service department at S&T under Manfred Irber GmbH just behind the dealership on WurmtalStrasse. Hr. Weigert and Bates ran the new car sales at S&T. But your records are spot on so it's a little odd to read this.

    From old memory there were two separate companies but at same location. Irber had his own company and S&T was the other firm.
    All at Würmtalstrasse.
