    I've been away for a month. On Dec.21 I suffered a sugar imbalance which caused me to become non-responsive. At the hospital it was determined that my kidneys were failing, so I am now on dialysis 3 hours 3 X per week. What a pain!

    Not looking for sympathy, just letting you know why I've been unusually silent. Ed

    Hello Ed;

    I met you in about 1966 or 1967 at your home in the Hollywood Hills and was looking to purchase my first Ferrari, It made such an impression on me that I have been through 12 Ferrari's since and still have four. the one I was looking at your house was a 250 Zagato that was red with an ugly white Diamond Tuck interior that looked like something from Mexico, and you were asking $3500.00 for it and I turned it down. I don't know if you remember it, but I always wonder if that was the same car # 0515 that the Sydorick's have today.
