    Hi Christian,

    Ok these photos are strike related as you can tell by the we are stubborn unionists visual statement.

    I actually thought that was Bob on the right but I am not sure he was a member of the Modena chapter of the UAW back then:p

    Are you sure about February 1974? Looking at the Meraks in the photo, all seem to have the flat engine cover. Early Meraks had a spare tire hump in the cover.

    Lowest price I could find on Mr Sonnery's book was $345. Impressive.

    Hi Joe, you are right but that was only on US market Meraks and temporarily, for th early cars as you note, before the space saver doughnut spare tires were allowed when US regulators changed their mind.

    Hello Terry,
    That would be unnecessary, my book is probably available at Autobooks in Burbank California for a normal price which would be less than half of what you mention.

    https://www.autobooks-aerobooks.com/

    Otherwise to buy straight from the source my publisher in the UK routinely sends books all over the world in very sturdy bespoke packaging and there have never been any issues with the condition of the book when it arrives.

    http://www.eaurougepublishing.com/publications/detail/maserati-the-citroen-years

    Also in the Uk is Hortons Books the best car book shop in the world:

    http://www.hortonsbooks.co.uk/

    Another alternative is Ebay as long as the seller has good feedback.

    Do NOT however buy on Amazon, not ever, they are lying bullies and do NOT have inventory no matter what they say.

    Again I got paid by contract long ago so not involved at all in book sales.

    Enjoy it:)

    Best regards,

    Marc

    Marc- Thanks, found it on the Autobooks-Aerobooks site for $150, like you said. Will have to pick up a copy. Always loved that generation of Maseratis, even though I have never owned one.

    Thanks very much for that Art, duly filed. I have not been to events in the northeast apart of Lime Rock vintage racing back in 1990...mostly Folorida, California and FCA national meets oh and two wonderful Maser Miglias where I drove a Bora 1997 Colorado and rode in one at top speed Nevada 2000.

    Will let you know when I come, enjoy your Bora:)

    Best regards,

    Marc

    Somewhat like comparing a Pontiac Firebird, a Delorean creation, to a Ghibli. Delorean is said to have been inspired by the Ghibli and copied the basic layout of front engined V8 with a live axle rear end.
    The Maseratis have much more refinement especially the Bora. It's really the first civilized mid engined car though not as raw and sporty as the Pantera. Both are beautiful cars though rather plain Jane when compared with a Miura.
    The Miura is like a very hot looking date you just can't stop looking at but I'd never marry one! LOL. My Espada is handful enough! :)!

    That's not the only time Detroit stole from Italy. One day while fettling those impressive webers on the side of a rural road in northern NJ a man pulled up and stopped to admire my Espada. It turned out he was a design engineer at Ford during the early run of the Espada. They bought one and kept it to study. They also used to take out at lunchtime with 4 aboard. He said you can see influences from it in the Ford Torino GT.
