Hello all,
Nice chatroom and thanks in advance to all of you for furthering my education in the Ferrari field.
I am new here and have started looking for a 512BB or a BBi. I have test driven a 365BB, 512BB and 512BBi and think with all the parameters I am accounting for that a Carbed BB would fit the bill of what I am looking for.
I have seen most of the BBi's that are available but currently there does not seem to be many carbureted cars on the market.
If any of you own or know of such cars that would be for sale please let me know and thank you for all your help.
I mostly would like to find something in North America in order to keep the costs of sending my mechanic for a ppi within reason.

Thanks again.

I would also contact Boston Sportscar Co, they deal with lots of older Ferraris on the east coast.

http://www.bostonsportscar.com/

I've spoken with a couple of the guys their in the past and they are really nice. If any have come through the area they'll know and can give a good ppi.

Right now we don't have any 512s on the site, but occassionally a Boxer will pop-up in our classifieds. Next time I see one that does I'll send it your way.

There are a few available over here (Europe) which look to be in good condition. Let me know if you are interested and I can forward details. One advantage to the European cars vs US Grey Market, is that they never would have been subjected to any 3rd party conversion work. Any car produced before 1980 is now exempt from DOT regulations. Dick Merritt at the DOT in DC can give you more details (he is wonderfully helpful).

Actually looks like the one I am trying to make a deal on will be a non altered European car.
