    Very nice article, especially since it matches your unusual Avorio color! Nice tribute, too, from someone that has the perspective of driving pretty much anything and everything. Similar to the love affair that British mechanic has with his old GT4...

    Yes very cool. I got a text from new member Thomasio with the link so I posted it here. Actually the owner of the GT4 in the article I have spoken with a few years ago but I never got the year and chassis number,as I'm keeping a list of Avorio cars.So I emailed him hopefully he replies.

    yea especially since there weren't many made as you know
    . and since most are red now, and its especially difficult to get the actual paint color, even more special to see Avorio

    Ive seen both. The guy in the Driven articles passion for the GT4 is amazing. To bad he didn't represent the GT4 in 1973 onwards. Might of been a different outcome

    I parked next to him at concorso a couple years ago.... Said hi for a minute - nice guy. He also works for Bruce T. at Fantasy Junction who, the same day, spoke with me about a couple cars that went through his shop but especially his love for the GT4, confirmed in the article.

    note - true to form of how GT4's get treated, I believe my car was parked furthest away from the front gate of the event.... (insert your flub jingle now)
