    Does anybody know where the car ended up? Darth I dig what you are saying about Karma. I did not even get a mention in the Forza article and the last invoice for the build is still unpaid. I was also threatened with a lawsuit if I told the truth about the F40! Bad Karma is a b*&%$#!
    Martin I hear what you are saying but the guy dealt me the final blow.

    I happen to know someone who has won Le Mans.

    Does that make me a Le Mans winner by association?

    If you guys could validate that, it would be great. I need something big like that to add to my resume.

    Cliff notes version:

    Roland lied by omission about his 2 (supposed) Lemans wins to dupe would be driving school participants into thinking they were being instructed by a winning driver, took sponsorship money for years and apparently screwed plenty of people along the way.

    Martin? Anything to add?

    The Forza article showed it burned to crisp, totalled. Headed for the crusher...

    Is there more truth 'out there'?

    Big Tex, I thought Roland bought his F-40 burnt, & then rebuilt it with another motor he aquired, and that's what we've seen..are you referring to this or did it burn again?

    I was referring to original article......David if he has a Mechanic's lien or even legitimate invoices should be paid by current owner........IMO.

    I was wondering about his comment....he has validity with me......

    AJ Foyt still has his Lemans champagne bottle. I've looked at it, I guess Gurney didn't want it....it IS empty......

    I post on a Ferrari chat site because I love Ferraris. There is more information centralized on this site than I could ever read. I get to see beautiful pictures, intoxicating videos and learn valuable information about the actual ownership of a Ferrari-- which I will experience in the future.

    Thanks for your input.

    --And for what it's worth, I didn't know Roland very well, but the one time I did meet him, he was a very gracious and kind man. He gave me an experience that I will remember for the rest of my life. The Roland I know is a good man.

    True, but that argument cuts both ways.

    More than once did I have that thought when the tide was against my line of arguing.
