    I didn't know LFSC had a restoration shop in house.

    I don’t know that they have a formal one, I just know they said it was there for some restoration—not ground up, just some various mechanical and interior stuff.

    Rolls sedans have never done much for me, but I’ve always loved Bentley/Rolls convertibles. Maybe in my next life....

    Very cool MC Victory Gransport, one of 180 getting a checkup at Continental Ferrari today. This shade of metallic white is amazing in person. There is another very nice blue GS right behind it also in for service. Maserati dealer or not this is the best place for early 2000's model Maserati service and advice.

    Here is a photo taken 10 years ago near Chicago. My question is about the 250 GTL Lusso, a car that used to get around a lot to shows in the area. The question is about the vents behind the front wheels, were they original? They almost look like a Tom Meade style modification.

    That’s a Marcel question. It wouldn’t surprise me if it was original, but I don’t remember the car. Do you remember who the owner was/is?

    Sheboygan hosts an, “Inland surfing championship” in September. I have a feeling it’s an excuse to drink on the beach. Either way, great car.

    BTW, I always get a kick when I see the rock n roll terrorist’s name as your screen name. I saw him at Medusa’s circa 1988. Glad I wasn’t too close to the stage, it got...messy.
