Just a quick intro to your great forum. My name is Ricardo Singer from San Diego California and I just acquired Al Davis's 1983 Ferrari Mondial QV. Car was offered at Bring A Trailer and as some of you may know, the BAT community is key in commenting and arguing in favor and against a car being auction making for an interesting and constructive platform. So far, after 3 days of intense driving, the car is doing fantastic. I was not sure what to expect when decided to acquire a Mondial however having one two 308’s GTS and GTSi and one 1979 308 GT4, without a doubt the Mondial is “the drivers car” it is easier to drive than the 308’s while not being a modern vehicle,. It is responsive and direct. When I picked up the car I was nicely surprised to find that the sunroof was working, the window was working and the timing belts were in fact replaced 4k miles ago which is a good thing. The problem with the first gear was sorted out and guaranteed by Mike (Corvette Mike) so thank you very much for steeping up with this. The car is fitted with a Tubi Style exhaust system giving the car a deep classy and exiting sound. The transmission shifts perfect, super smooth Etc. Although the car has the A/C and another couple of minor issues to be sorted out, I deem this a great purchase which came PACKED WITH GOOD KARMA (so far) Image Unavailable, Please Login Thank you all for all the comments and critiques during the auction, it was fun.
