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.

My Philosophy
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.

My racing experience:
4 years in SCCA with DP Lotus Super 7
4 years in Belgian National Group 1B
1978 Belgian National Champion Group 1B <2500cc
1978 2nd in Diner's Club Trans Europe Championship
Both in a 1975 Vauxhall Firenza
2 years Belgian Rally Series
1976 Champion <1300cc in a 1974 Lancia Fulvia Rally
2 years in British Sports 2000 in a Lola T492
2 years in European FF2000 Series in a Lola T580

Other interesting street cars I have owned and worked on:
1961 Porsche 356B (Karman Coupe)
1972 Simca Rally II
1968 Lancia Fulvia Zagato
1976 Alfasud
1978 Triumph Sports Wagon
1974 Lotus Europa Twin Cam (14 years)
1992 Subaru SVX in Pearl
2004 Audi allroad
Saabs

Call or email and tell me about your car and what you want to do with it. Let's see if we can make a plan together to get it on the road.
