    Car is from New York, was owned by a company called premeire financial, then owned by a man named Aldo Antonacci, who bought it with a loan under bank "All points Capital" located in Malverne, Newyork . Was titled with a plate named "RAMPANTE" whatever that means

    If you want his name and number and personal info I can get it for you. I have special access to vehical records far beyond carfax.


    oh and welcome!!!!

    Congratulations on your new 348, Jeff!

    Regarding skid plates, just remember that these only help when you are BOTTOMING the front end in a bump. They don't help if you coming up against a curb, in fact they can make it worse in that case if they are thick enough that they decrease the ground clearance in front. Be careful, don't lose your bumper!

    Congrats on the new car! I'll never forget that first ride home in my first Ferrari. One of the best feelings in the world! And like you mentioned, this site is a great resource. Enjoy and drive safely. :)

    Well I didnt do to bad for just skimming over the report:) I will pull a detail report on it monday morning and let you know all the detail of who owned it and when.

    MY car was bought through an auction with NO PAPERS, I tracked down the owners and ended up getting all the history and service papers for it.

    Great news on the car - congratulations. (ts? tb?)

    Bad news on the f-chat username...

    "RAMPANTE" plates were probably a reference to "cavallino rampante" - prancing horse.

    RAMPANTE is from the phrase describing the rearing horse of the Ferrari logo.

    cavallino rampante = rampant horse......roughly!

    Congrats and welcome!

    Jeff,
    Congrats on finding a car that suits your needs. The 348 is really no trouble (unlike the reputation it has) mechanically. I think the exhaust ECU / catalytic converters are the main problem and can be fixed for about $1300 for two new ecu's that will last far beyond your ownership of the car. Please do post some pics when you get a chance, and order the Zaino kit #1 if you have any swirls in the paint that you want to get rid of. Polishing a 348 is not work at all, more like therapy.
    :)
