This is the 1000th post I’ve made on this website! With over 11 years of posts about my life and travels involving Ferraris, I would have never guessed I could have done so much.
Sometimes I wonder how to make sense of such a large body of work. It’s a lot to comprehend if you just so happen to stumble upon this website, and I know some of you have actually read every post from beginning to end! However or whenever you found it, I wanted to look back at some of the highlights in the past 1000 posts.
It all started with the first post deciding a website was the best way to document a restoration of a Ferrari that I thought would only take about a year!
How about when original paperwork for my car showed up on e-bay?!
One year anniversary
When I bought my 330 America, the previous owner said the engine was “rebuilt by a Jaguar mechanic.” Well…
I now found I needed to have the transmission looked at because it was jambed up!
One of the cool things about working with Francois is the cool cars I get to see!
I learned about aluminum metal forming
Engine gets installed!

Just when I thought I was making progress…

I started this website to organize my collection of photos and notes from the Restoration of my 330 America. Little did I know it was going to dramatically change my life. The links above are only a fraction of the adventures I’ve had, but I’ve been lucky to have you all following along. I look forward to another 1000 entries!
