    Interesting story!
    Not exactly what you would expect when you read "...under the same ownership for the last 40 years.....".
    But apparently all the numbers are still on the car (not like the car at the Bevely Hills Car Club)?

    So Marc, you say for certain that the Gullwing car is the Skolnik car?
    Yes it will be interesting to know its future.

    Hello Carmine,

    It was great to meet you and that visit to Gullwing was epic. Yes it was Al Skolnick's car and we shall see what happens to it! It was first offered to clients of mine, who have bought many cars from Gullwing, in July, but it was only actually advertised by Gullwing September 27 two days after we visited and Anthony Stella showed us the car. I am almost certain Gullwing don't know about its theft decades ago.

    Hello, Marc! Yes it was great to finally meet in person after so many years of internet friendship!

    Yes, a Gullwing visit is an experience like no other.

    In other news a very tired rusty Khamsin which was more or less beyond saving at a reasonable cost has been sold this week in Europe to aid the restoration of another and I was very glad to put both Maseratisti in touch and aid in the resurrection of a K. I am leaving names and chassi numbers out for privacy reasons.

    Best regards,

    Marc

    Marc,
    Any chance of asking the new owner if he needs the rear side window trims ?
    I am still looking for some for #393.
    Thanks,
    Neil.

    Hello everyone. I have just found this rather sad auction of the Bertone family silver.

    https://www.astebolaffi.it/pdf/auctions/102.pdf

    Marc, I seem to recall from a good while ago that you came across the wooden box of Khamsin finishing samples at Bertone.
    Well, it is in the sale at lot 76. Just thought the Khamsinisti would be interested. Sadly no Khamsin design model, Miura and Countach though! And lots of Stratos bits.

    Best regards.

    Mark.

    Hello Neil, Mark,

    Neil He is keeping them as he needs them sorry, did you try all the usual sources in the UK, Europe, the US?

    Mark no you must be confusing me with someone else, I have been to Marcello Gandini's home to interview him and back again to give him his copy of my book but I have never been to Bertone's former premises. I saw what Maserati has, they even brought the huge plaster model to KHAMSIN QUARANTA in 2012 but finishing samples I have not seen.
    There was another such model at Citroen but that vanished.

    Best regards,

    Marc

    Best regards to all
