    Hi Jimmy,
    That's a very strange respons from the people in France...red flag in my opinion...
    I think Onno has already mentioned our F-specialist in Holland who has restored and sold a few of them, this is their website: www.forzaservice.nl
    Take a look in the projects section to see the GTO they did, it shows what they can do, impressive! He might be able to locate a good car for you as he has an extensive network.(I don't have any connections or interests with them, they ar just my specialist.)
    Good luck on the chase, I'll keep my eyes and ears open for you!

    Hello Jeoen:
    275 was delivered to the shipping company and is sitting within a container ready to leave Yokohama this Saturday, waiting for customs' clearance.

    I have checked online 288s available but without much luck. Two of them looked good, but after checking my sources, I was told they had problems and I should stay away. One car is in Calfornia and the other in UK. I emailed the others but have not received replies. The only one I got a response was in France, but they would not even divulge the chassis number unless I pay deposit up front. Not sure what to make of that. Otherwise, I have sent contacts to two other private broker sources to locate for me. Thanx.

    Hi Jimmy,
    Just wondering how you are getting along without the 275.
    Any progress on the GTO adventure?
    Warm wishes

    Hi Jeroen:
    Thanx for your kind thoughts and comments. FLED 6 should be a great event and being my first and yours too, it should be exciting and memorable event. Unfortunately, that time of the year in Japan is the peak holiday season and airfaires are three times the normal fare ! I always envied the Europeans for many things. Being able to travel and cross borders by car is indeed very attractive thing for me.

    Enough about me. Your Ducatis are exquisite and I do admire your passion and taste. Maybe you can start a new thread to show and educate us in your bike interests. I am sure many of us would appreciate and luv to see such threads.
    w/ smiles Jimmy

    Hi Jimmy,
    You sure will be travelling a long way to meet us, highly appreciated by the members looking at all the thumbs up they are giving you in the thread!. Why are you a little crazy for having a beautifull yellow 275? You are not crazy, but brilliant from my point of view!
    Thank you for your kind wishes, but I think I'll be a lot safer driving my Ferrari than when I'm riding my classic Ducati's...
    a kind smile back to you!

    Thank you for the PM, Jeroen. Congrats with your beautiful 550. Thank you for the compliment, I am just a little crazy. Yes, FLED6. As I mentioned in another post, my main reason to meet up with the FL memebers and get to know them in person. Going around half a globe is a long way and costly, but it should be worth it. Would be great if you get to join the caravan. Sign up for the list, even if it is still tentative. No one would get upset if you decide to back out later.
    Meanwhile, give yourself some time to get used to your new Ferrari. Drive safe. Thanx again, Jeroen. w/ smiles Jimmy

    That sounds great ! Certainly can walk to work from Atago Towers (?). Would be better if you get in touch with me first before you drop by my office. Cheers.
