    I am on the hunt for a Testarossa or 512TR in white. Looking for a high quality car with a great maintenance history. If anyone knows of any for sale, please let me know. Thanks - Craig

    Looking for parts NLA
    Consider buying any color TR and then applying a high quality white wrap. Otherwise you may be looking for a very long time for a good example in white that’s at a reasonable price etc. Good luck!

    Oooo too bad, my '89 is white but it has a black interior and 8400 miles, plus I've owned it since 1991. White/white must be VERY rare, the only other white TR I've seen in person had beige interior.

    He was our client and we sold it to him.

    Lets just say entertainers and sports stars old cars are the last I would buy. Typically used and treated like a rental and used by the entire entourage.

    Also often subjected to installation of electronics and any modification known to man by shops chosen for all the wrong reasons. There are exceptions but that is a very common pattern. Joe Montana was one of those exceptions but it was no surprise, Joe was a grown up with class and dignity. MC hammer on the other hand. I really liked him, nice guy but the pile of parts that was his car was hauled off to auction.

    Yeah I remember you saying that then. We had discussed the Bo Jackson’s red TR for sale.
    I’d think it’s even more true with manual cars where the clutch could get wrecked, over revving and things like that.
