Buying a classic Ferrari at auction

I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share their experiences purchasing a classic Ferrari at auction? In particular, I'd love to hear about how PPI's are performed with auctioned vehicles. Are you forced to rely upon the auction house's mechanics?

Some beautiful cars coming up for auction in January, including a '72 Dino owned by James Coburn:

At the Maranello auction last May, I know that Jim Glickenhaus (owner of the resurrected P3/P4 #0846) did an inspection with his mechanics of the 350CanAm (formerly a P4) there. This was on the Thursday, I think, whilst the cars where stored in a hangar. Once the cars were displayed at the Fiorano circuit inspection options were limited, but perhaps if you asked you could have the car transported to a bridge. I did see that several cars were taken for test drives and such.

It is best to phone the auction house and ask them yourself.
