Very interesting, I thought it was only the US that was anti-spinner.

Jimmy, how was it like buying a car unseen & from a stranger? It's the first time I'm doing this. P.S. very nice to see a Japanese plate Ferrari, let alone a Boxer!

Danny, I would love to bring this car over soon. I spent several days @ Cannes this May in my 456GT that I shipped over from Malaysia for the Mille Miglia. Was in Aix en Provence, Marseilles, St Tropez etc few years ago & love it. Is the weather & sea there kind to old Ferraris? (am thinking of retiring down there)

Hi Jon, great to see you here. Congrats on 17967 again.

The French Riviera is pretty dry and is no problem to old Ferraris, unless you're garage is at the beach (lucky man if it is). In winter it can get damp so I would say get decent storage and a dehumidifier. Are you planning to do the MM Tribute again? I'm very likely doing it again in 2013.

Hi !

Be welcomed down there.

As regards the weather, I think it's better for old Italian cars than in Singapore or Malaysa !

Even at the seaside.

Mediterranea is a sea, not an ocean. So less more salt, and quite no waves.

Winters are cold (we can get -12c in Aix, never less than -5 in Marseilles or St Tropez) and dry w/ snow, depending where you are, once every 2 years.

Summers are hot for Europe w/ 28/35c, and dry.

Huge amount of rainfalls in Automn and a little bit less, in spring.

But, no monsoon !!!

On my own, I love Singapore and Bali for different reasons, and would want to retire down there !!

Do we always want what we have not ?!!?

;-)

You know what? We should just swap everything & you can have the wife too! hahaha, kidding. (luckily she's not here!)

Oh, I didn't know that Provence can get so cold in winter. Summer's fine as we get 30+ all year long with nights @ 26-28 but the weather is screwed, we get heavy rain anytime now though dry spells are usually in June-July.

Old cars don't do too well in SIngapore, there's always old Alfas, Porsche & Merecedes being stripped bare for restoration as rust creeps easily.

I'm going over UK to collect & drive the Boxer in 3 weeks time & wonder if it's best to swing by London or Paris for a few days?

Hey thanks mate. I'm most likely going to keep the Boxer there as it has a nice plate along as well & easier to sell in future.

Malaysia is easy on tax for classic cars, anything above 25yrs qualifies, no yearly MOT, reduced road tax & great mountain roads. BUT dealing with the people in customs & everything else is a PITA My friend's Strato was stucked @ the port warehouse for 6 months while they take their own sweet time to clear documentation even after he "greased" their pocket....

In Singapore, sighhh. Classic cars must be 35yrs & older. We get taxed 130% on invoice including shipping, insurance etc. We also have to pay a 10year once COE (currently @ Euro40K) extra to register it. By then, any speculation is gone down the govt. pocket. Then, bi-annual inspections & the worst part, just 28days to drive a year. They give you a coupon to tear, though some guys risk it by driving around in wee hours or have a fleet of classics to share the coupon.

Lastly, UK & EU have a lot more experts to maintain such cars, especially carbs @ cheaper prices. When I did my engine out on the TR, it costed me almost Euro7000 & a clutch job for the V12 Lambo is Euro11K @ the agent! So you guys have it very cheap on maintenance.

Hi Onno,
Glad to see you're so active here! Cheers & thanks for the congrats again.

Forgive me, but did you enter your 550 this year? What's your start no? Mine's 541.

I'm trying to enter MM again but my 3rd kid's delivery is on 24th, within that few days of MM So, maybe 2013 but we hope they'll continue this tradition as the few accidents this year wasn't encouraging.

After I bought this, I realised it's probably not eligible for most rallies including Tour Auto as it might not get a FIVA. So, probably have to get a cheaper British or some old 911 for those events.

The dealer is garaging my Boxer for free under their trade insurance & they get to excercise her every now & then. Helps that he has a 355 spider too. Hey, if you're not too far, maybe, can you help me to run a check on the Boxer? They're @ Canterbury, a Lotus & Caterham specialist.

Jon

I lived in KL for a bit a while back so I am familiar with some of the challenges regarding cars. Not easy.

If you need a recommendation for someone to take a look at the BB for you, let me know.

Hi Jon,

I was in the very first edition, 2010, with my 330GTC. In 2011, I participated in the "real" Mille Miglia, with a 1952 Siata Daina Gransport, unfortunately not a very happy experience as we missed the start due to a bad bobine and dropped out on the first morning with a failed crankshaft bearing. I'll be entering the GTC again in 2013.

I don't live in the UK and in fact am having trouble to find the time to visit my own Boxer (which is about done with its engine restoration in Exeter). So swinging by Canterbury will be a bit tricky I'm afraid, at least for the rest of the year. The Boxer won't be eligible for the Tour Auto as it has never entered back in period. A Dino is a nice entry, or a Porsche 911S.

That doesn't seem out of place for European pricing.

Don't be upset, but I have what I need as regards Wifey.

For the rest, why not swapping homes for holidays !

Wonderful! If you could, that would be best as my last $10K for an exhaust went to a person who's now hiding.

Fantastic stuff mate. Your GTC is sweet, there was a yellow one this year who was quite fast on the roads. For 2010, I was in a rented Volvo C70 under journalist pass to cover my friend's Aston Martin DB2 & I was hooked! God was kind to me & got lucky with this year's Tribute.

We met a lot of Dutch guys from classics to Porsche clubs along the journey.

Think I saw your thread on the restoration, will check it out.

Hi Onno, interesting you partecipated to the 2010 Ferrari Tribute to the Mille Miglia. I would be very interested in knowing more about your experience with it.

The Ferrari Tribute wasn't well accepted by many Italian 'purists' of the historical racing. While it is fantastic to see many splendid vintage Ferraris to be part of the Mille Miglia, the rule is very clear: only the models which took part to the real Mille Miglia can be admitted to the historic Mille Miglia. To create this Tribute has been seen as an organizers' 'trick' to have more visibility (Ferrari) and more money coming from the partecipants, almost doubled.

The company organizing the Mille Miglia, Mac Group, a few years ago was able to 'steal' the rights to organize it from the original company which invented it many years ago. Since then the Mille Miglia has steadily become less and less an event for vintage cars passionates and more and more a simple, big business.

Just to give you an example, to the last edition a very special crew was permitted to attend, after many polemics, by the Brescia Automobil Club. It was given #376, as an exception to the rule to have only 375 cars attending the race (not the Tribute). The crew was composed by Nicola Fabiano (78 years old) and Erasmo Crivellari (84 years old). The car was a 1955 Fiat 1100/103 TV. What so special ? Fabiano attended the real 1957 Mille Miglia, with the very same car, and obtained a category 3rd place. Crivellari attended two real Mille Miglias: 1953 and 1956.

Mac Group should have welcomed with open arms such a combo. But Fabiano is just a fantastic old pilot, not a powerful and well connected people who attend the Mille Miglia with models which never partecipated in the real one, but get every years 'special permissions' to be in the 375 chosen ones.

Another issue with Mac Group is related to the fact that a municipality has to pay to have the Mille Miglia transit on its roads, otherwise, be it the historical route or not, the Mille Miglia will pass elsewhere !

So I was interested in knowing your opinion as seen coming from abroad.

Thanks !

ciao
Mauro
