EU got all the goodies from the Stroll collection.
No, not all of them.
1040 to Guikas
Who ended up with the P4?
Nice to see Guikas is still in the game. I wonder if he will keep it or resell?
I bet he will drive it a few times and not be in a hurry to sell it, he has an amazing personal collection and after the auction of some of his cars later this month he will be even less in need of selling.
Three years ago when I visited the USA collection which has 512M #1020 he had me ask if he could buy it or trade something partly for it but the owner did not want to. He loves 512 S & M's.
When October 1, 2015 at Paul Ricard I test drove #1024 for a Classic & Sportscar article and a future book chapter he was observing things very closely

Google Ferrari 0856 barchetta.cc and it will give you the answer ;-)
Thank. Do you know what the D stands for? I get no results when i google Birkenstock other than the awful sandals.
Alex and Christian Birkenstock sold their "sandal company" earlier this year for a couple billions to private equity group L Catterton and French billionaire Bernard Arnault (LVMH).
Resulting in fresh cash and new cars in the garage.
D stands for Deutschland a.k.a. Germany.
Thank you. Had no idea Birkenstock was a 250 years old company.
What's the current consensus on which car got the second place in the '71 12 Hours of Sebring, 1006 or 1028?
Has anyone other than barchetta.cc confirmed the chassis tag swapping story?
Apologies for the double post as I wasn't able to edit my previous one but just found out barchetta.cc removed the "chassis tag swapping" story from 1028 racing history while 1006's remains unavailable. Weird.
At Racingsportscars.com both 1006 (#23) and 1028 (#26) are listed as DNF in that race. (Oil pressure and radiator respectively)
Once, I called Juncadella (owner of 512 M #1002), as I mistakenly thought that he owned a GTAm (Alfa Romeo)
that I inherited, to enquire about it, wins, photos, stories, etc.
He promptly dismissed me telling me that he had owned sooo many cars, he could not possibly remember. Well, that was that.
Turned out it was another Juncadella (of the GTAm) that I finally tracked down, was very nice and sent photos of his racing in Spain,
always in the Escuderia Montjuich. The Juncadella, were extreme sportsmen, and competed in every sport available, boats, motorcycles, cars.
Going back to the 1st Juncadella, shown on various posts here, I was told by a Spanish friend that one day, during a race, he stopped at the pits
for a Coca Cola, not tires, or other mundane items, supposedly while doing rather well. Everybody on the team was not amused
A bit of a different sort.
512 S Spider #1002 sold new 3 April 1970 to Société de Voitures de Sport S.A., located at Grand Pont 12 in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Great document Marcel! I went half way across Barcelona to find the book you mention.
It had long been out of print, and almost had to pry it out the bookshop owner's hands
It is absolutely fantastic
Please disregard my post, I meant to write "1971 Daytona 24h" instead of "Sebring 12h".
#1006 seems to be the car that most sources agrees on (?) https://www.racingsportscars.com/chassis/archive/1006%20%5b512S%5d.html
just found this:
even slow driving nice to see such a car on the road
Yep, older the the US of A....

It's not that bad..It's just too small.
Michael Sheehan had a much better one with a Daytona engine a few years ago.
Tom do you know if this replica used body panels made from accurate moulds or were they made by the builder? agree with amenasce that it dosent look quite right... BBLM wheels?
