So what does this have to do with ferrarilife.com
Some of ya'll know me as someone who has owned several very interesting and collectible zcars. From the 1 of 3 Black and Silver 81 ZXT to the ASC 300zx Spyder. Unfortunately, my "addiction" doesn't always land me in the spotlight. Matter of fact, more often than not, I take wonderful trips across the country only to come back empty handed.
My latest quest led me to a "mint" 2001 Qvale Mangusta. Unfortunately, by the owner's definition, I guess "mint" includes a car that has had a subpar repaint, including overspay in several key areas (door bolts, handles and trim) and fish eyes in the paint, most notable on the driver side of the top. Also, the leather is cracked, and there is something loose in the dash, possibly from the speedometer bezel being removed and replaced.
Well, now, if a potential buyer does a search on Qvale Mangusta #230 as I did, they may save the hassle of flying across the country or avoid the disappointment of buying this "mint" car sight unseen. Maybe they will land here and ferrarilife.com, and realize they should just go ahead and buy a Ferrari (or my favorite a Maserati, sorry), who knows.
I know there are more appropriate forums (Mangusta forum is closed), and I will post there as well.
GOOD NEWS OF THE STORY: Wound up in Vegas with an extra day to kill, so got the opportunity to take a last minute registration in the Exotic Racing School at the Las Motor Speedway.
Oh, the car in question is now on ebay. It is well worth the current bid of $1.25, but not much more. Other Makes Other Makes | eBay
