    Body looks very good with nice door gaps. Once the car is painted is when the really fun part begins!
    Sending you a PM.

    New poster here...I just stumbled upon this forum yesterday while attempting to research a particular Ghibli Spyder my father owned when I was younger. After digging through some boxes, I found the California registration slip from 1981 which (thankfully) has the VIN. A quick google of AM115S1177 tells me the dark brown metallic car that I rode around in as an 8 year old boy has since been painted red and sold in 2014 for $605k by RM Auctions. Does anyone else have any information on this car as far as the history from when my dad sold it (in mid-1981 I believe) through present? Also if anyone knows the present owner's information, I have several photos of what the car looked like back then, as well as the California registration and my dad's personalized "LE MAZ" California license plate. Interestingly, the car had very unique round taillights when my dad owned it (my dad claimed there were only a few Ghiblis with this treatment) but those seem to have been changed out to the more traditional taillights according to the photos I found of the RM auctions lot.

    Anyway, the main points of my post are twofold: 1) to learn what has happened to the car in the years since Dad owned it, and 2) to provide what little info and documentation I have to anyone who might be interested.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thank you for the photos. Great documents. In the little village I grew up, somebody had a yellow Ghibli spider. Later painted black with gold rims. Unfortunately, I did not take any pictures...

    Lovely photos of 1077 ‘in the day’!
    From the chassis plate on their website, the Hodlmayer car looks like 1099.

    Best to all.

    The Hödlmeier car has automatic transmission AND the same rear lights.

    Love looking at photos from the late 70's early 80's. That was my era and i too was a "picture taker" at that time.
