    Thanks for the info. I figured it might have happened at the exit of the left hander going up the hill towards the corkscrew (used to be T4 before the expansion of the track). I recall how the terrain dropped off there and the barriers, as you mentioned, were closer to the track.

    I hadn't wanted to suggest it, but I had the same thought that it might have been a display tub, or a previously damaged one that had been repaired for display. That sort of failure just doesn't look right.

    A dangerous error perhaps, a tub repaired to ONLY be a show car which by way of sloppy records got sold as a bona fide usable one...On a different but similar note that's what scares me with concours obsessives going as far as using ancient tires for display because they were correct back when...even though they are dry, cracked, lethal for anything other than driving off the trailer onto the concours lawn. The problem with that is that one day at home someone comes by gets excited by the car and the owner says let's take the car for a ride, it will be all right....lethal.

    I have some photos from 1994 around here somewhere, I'll have to dig them up. I still have memories of a small restaurant in Monterrey near where the Rick Cole Auction was set up (IIRC); they had a lobster with bowtie pasta and cream sauce that was delicious. I ate there three nights in a row! Also I recall an Italian-food restaurant in Carmel named Mama's that was also fantastic. I don't think it is there any longer though.

    The black Series I Cabriolet at PB in 1994 was I believe 0789GT if I recall correctly. It was restored to a fine standard of detail, especially for that time. It had red (?), leather changed to green leather by a later owner. This Cabriolet was auctioned at Gooding PB in 2019, if you wish to search for more recent photos. The original colors however were metallic gray with black leather.

    The first car is a Series I 250 Pf Cabriolet; the second is a 250 California Spider. The numbers stamped on the wheel rims are the Borrani RW#(model number of the wheel). In this case probably RW 3264?
    Marcel and Steve are you asleep, where are those chassis numbers?

    To clarify, it is the the black Cabriolet in post #148 that I referenced, that as 0789GT. Regarding posts #156 & #164, that is a different Cabriolet - I believe 0737GT (jn this case the color as photographed is eggplant, not black).

    I wish the digital camera had existed commercially back then. I would have taken THOUSANDS of photos !
