My latest addition
is a 1984 Ferrari 400i. This is a 4.8 liter V-12. It is a 2+2 GT car as can be seen in the photo. My wife
and I intend to enjoy the car on our long weekend vineyard trips.
Ken's 1969 Lotus Elan +2 with 190 HP Cosworth BDR. Car was
completely restored in the 1990's.
Jeanette Battle's 1994 Subaru SVX
Sports and GT Cars from the late 1950's through the early 1980's and beyond should be driven. Keeping them original and
locked in a garage is not what they were designed and built for. Maintenance and restoration of these cars should include
subtle upgrades to improve everyday driveability and longevity.
Do you have one of these cars that won't start,
starts but doesn't stop(!), missing "No Longer Available" parts or in need of a complete restoration? I will use
my experience with the many race and street cars that I have owned to get your car back on the road without spending a fortune.
Be prepared for some time delays but we will work out a schedule you can live with.
