Moved from 456 and 612 Scaglietti photo thread
Ed, I do not see any reason for you to recuse yourself just because you like the car!
Doug, I took the Mondial to the Reading Concours in May of 2000 where Sergio Scaglietti was the guest of honor. Bryan had the idea that it would be fun to get his signature on the car. I pulled the spare tire tonneau off and Bryan had a sharpie and now I have another piece of history. See the attached photo of the signing.
Terry, happy that you too like the little blue car. Size is very deceiving. The Mondial wheel base is 6 inches shorter that that of a 1960 WV bug. At six feet one inch I am taller that everyone of the drivers that used it before I did. Regarding your seeing the car, Denise has been on my case to bring it to her Santa Fe Concorso for a couple of years. Although I drove it from San Francisco to New York in the sixties, I am not up to trying to drive it to New Mexico and shipping it isn't cheap. Last summer when Bryan and family and we grandparents visited the old family homestead on the upper Sapello, HelenAnn and I had coffee with Denise in Santa Fe and she again pushed on the idea of publishing an e-book on the story. Maybe someday...
Enough rambling for now.
