    Welcome AH61011

    Here are a couple pictures I took after moving the car to a friend's warehouse in Scottsdale where it will be picked up tomorrow for delivery to me on Tuesday.

    Congratulations on your new ride. It looks perfect from the pictures, even the metal door thresholds in the last picture.

    The thresholds are perfect. There are no marks in the door jambs that are so common on all Z8s where the seatbelt buckle has been shut inside the jamb. This is truly in the top two or three Z8s, as far as condition goes, that I have ever inspected. It has every document from new including the original order form, purchase invoice, and service records from day one. The windstop deflector is still wrapped in the original shipping plastic. Other than the picture here, the convertible top has never been up. The hardtop was on the car from new. That of course won't be the case once I get the car.

    Congratulations Marty, the car looks pristine. How could you resist driving it from Arizona to California? There are some great scenic roads just made for the Z8 out there.

    And yes, tell us more about the 330. I have found huge asking price gaps in the few cars currently on the market.

    Happy motoring,

    Thats great Marty! You know what, right now is not the time for me to buy a vintage car but for a brief moment I did consider it. I'm very excited for you.

    Hi Christian,
    I had left my truck at the airport in Burbank and didn't want to go fetch it the next day. Also, the car was loaded up with all of the extras that came with the car and I really didn't feel like driving 400 miles or putting that many miles on the car that quickly.
    Have a call into my guy on the Ferrari.

    Thank you Marty. This is the 4 seater 330 which is a nice car but the 4 seaters never have done all that well. In todays market these must be appreciating too and I bet its a good time to sell. I also think its a really nice car and probably a good choice for a first vintage F car. However, at this time I cannot be a serious inquiry so I wound't want to know more. I love how a lot of marketing will say "original miles"; or "adult miles"- I would hope they are original and if they aren't adult then are they child miles?!

    I'd love to pull the trigger but its not the right time for me.

    I keep walking out into the garage to look at them. They sure look nice sitting there side by side. Don't miss the Porsche at all.

    Marty, you keep walking out? I would sleep out there and only walk in to take care of business.
    Thank you for the 330 update. That is the model with double headlights. Sounds like it is in perfect condition. This weekend I will be looking at an early model II still with double headlights of the model I and the suspended pedals and 5 speed manual transmission of the series II. Then there is that Ghibli I need to check out. I guess I am just frustrated having my Z8 in storage at Auto-Vino for West Coast adventures and not finding one I really like for Texas.

    Enjoy your silver bullets. (I like the trick with identical license plate numbers on both vehicles and will let you know how this goes over when I try it here in Texas).

    New tires- check
    Top down - check
    Boot in place - check

    Let the fun begin! Hard to believe the former owner didn't fully enjoy this great car.

    Thanks Marty- but lets face it, I didn't design it. It is a gorgeous car and you have a truly spectacular example. I'm happy for you.
