3. What are the most undervalued and overlooked classics ?

I think 330 and 365 GTC’s and the undervalued 275 GTS are really great buys. I have sold six 330 GTC’s and a 365 in last several months.They have plenty room for growth.

4. Whats your daily driver ?

812 Superfast tailor made at the factory. A great car.

5. Your dream car and all time favourite ?

My all time favourite is 250 series 1 spyder. They only made 35 covered headlight cars and each one is hand made. And a third of the price of a California spyder. When they were new the series 2 was way more expensive than the California.
