Need info from previous owner / F-life member

Hi,

Lots of research/shopping has led me to what appears to be a beautiful '95 348 Spider that was previously owned by Ferrari-lifer Kurby69 (Greg). I stumbled onto a few of Greg's posts after Googling the serial and assembly numbers (thank you FerrariLife!). It looks like Greg hasn't been active for a while, but maybe I'll get lucky. Greg, if you're reading this, it sounds like you and the lady shared quite a few "exciting" miles together. Were you the last owner before she ended up at Smith's? The CarFax is clean. Photos look great. According to the dealer all maintenance is current, and there were a few aftermarket parts installed. Was anything modified/repaired that wouldn't be obvious to the dealer? Any seat-of-the-pants feedback - other than the common 348 pain points - you can share? This is a long distance purchase, so any info is sincerely appreciated.

Thanks in advance for helping me out!

- Nathan

Nathan, suggest you PM him as well.

When a PM lands in his inbox, he'll get an email notifying him that he has a new PM from someone at FLife. Otherwise, simply by starting this thread he won't know you're trying to contact him until he visits the site, which may take awhile.

'99 550, Rosso Corsa / Nero, S/N:114654, Assy: 31836, Engine: 52084

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

John, thanks. Did that last night. I posted this thread on the off chance Greg is not reachable, and someone else with first-hand knowledge of the vehicle might be able to help me out. For example, someone who happened to see Greg with the car at a meet, and the car looked and sounded great at the time - any info beyond the dealer description would help. As I told Greg, there may be nothing to share, but you never know until you ask.

There is an old advertisement from EuroSpeed Imports, which could have been where Greg bought the car. It had 26k miles at the time, and the engine bay was spotless. I have additional photos from Smith Imports, where it now has 32k miles, and the engine bay is not so spotless anymore. By that I mean electrolysis on coolant items, dried/cracked plug boots, etc. The dealer has been very helpful, but hopefully Greg can shed some light on the 6k miles between EuroSpeed and Smith's - oil changes, how long did it sit between drives, was it garage kept or tarped, etc.

Any recommendations for someone to do a PPI in the Memphis, TN area in the next week or so? Thanks!
