Dear Dinosaur followers,

Looks to me like it was the seventh most expensive car sold at all of the PB auctions. Or second highest Ferrari price at Gooding. But that doesn't really matter because it went to a car guy who will drive it and show it.

Best regards,

Robert

Dear Dinosaur followers,

Today the combined views count for the following two videos of my car have passed one half million! It is a bit hard for me to comprehend such numbers for what is really a niche vehicle. Fortunately it went to a car guy who was spotted driving in the 30 degree Wisconsin weather a couple of days ago.



Best regards,

Robert

Dear Dinosaur followers,

51 weeks since the big sale and she still is looking good. This was taken this morning Sunday 18 August 2019 at the Casa Ferrari display on the first fairway at Pebble Beach.

Welcome home! I see behind the small blue car Johnny von Neumann's silver 250 that I saw on track at Santa Barbara in Spring 1959 driven I recollect by Richie Ginther and Josie v. N.

Dear David,

Good to hear from you! I must admit it was a bit strange seeing my car at a show without me being there, but that was an earlier chapter in my life. Interesting to see that even FNA could not get the V-12 vs I-4 correct. In any event I am delighted that Frank is showing the car.

Best regards,

Robert
