I have not posted often but have listened to much advice on the forum. After thinking about it since 1969, yes 1969 I made my first ferrari buy. Had the car looked over by Tom Shaunessy and also spoke with Aaron Masters and Tom Yang , all very helpful. Car is 1972 365ctc4 not the most popular but I wanted a more vintage type ride , carbs ,points etc. Used to pull wrenches for a living long time ago . Saw a 275gtb for sale in 1968 for 15,000 but as I was making 1.25 an hour i was out of reach . Fired up my 12 cylinders for the first time yesterday , mechanical symphony. Thanks to all for advice and help during my search .
