Re: What color to paint my Series 1 330GT

Hi Rob, If you are in the New York City area at any point before you make your decision and would like to see a 1963 330 America in its original Marrone I would be happy to introduce you to my car. When I bought the car I thought the color was fine but not a wow. 15 years later I know I was wrong gi...

Tom Terrific

I don't usually attend events like Monterey but the draw of the third GTE reunion and the idea of returning our car to the neighborhood it came from proved too appealing. In talking to Tom about the trip he said "I think the car could win a Platinum in Preservation Class". I thought it was a real st...

A 1987 exhibition at the Cartier Foundation - Ferrari

We are in Paris and were looking at the new Cartier Foundation exhibit web site and came across this film about a 1987 Marc Newson exhibit featuring Ferraris. A long video but I hope you will find it interesting. Some Italian and of course French but mostly music and Ferraris. This is the you tube l...

Re: Our friends in the path of Sandy

We were very lucky. Trees behind the house gave way in the high winds but fell away from the house. We lost power at 5:30 Monday night but got it back 10:30 Tuesday night. Dinner and reading in bed by candle light was fun for a night or two but if the freezer had unfroze on Wednesday the fun would h...

Re: My 365GT2+2's smoking habit

At the risk of appearing realllly dumb, I would ask if it is possible that you have overfilled the oil sump. I did that inadvertantly thinking I was down a quart of oil and wound up having smoke appear constantly, in an engine that had been rebuilt and did not smoke. I am practicing what my business...

Re: 250 GTE floor

I guess as with all things Ferrari, variation is the rule rather than the exception. When I redid my floors on 4969 there was only a top layer and bottom layer of metal sandwiching the fiberglass. There was also a sort of cross brace that was under the seats and had holes of for (I guess) seat belt ...

Re: GTE MIRROR ON EBAY

Were the lighted mirrors on all 250 GTEs?

Tom Y, I don't remember your 330 America having one and mine certainly doesn't have a light. I know that my mirrror has been on the car since Ed bought it in 1967 and I believe it was original then.

Don't you think a little WD-40 would do as well?

Re: GTE/GT Power Antenna - Which is Correct?

I bought a period Hirschmann antenna when I first got the car six years ago from Hirshmann when they were in New Jersey. Yale gave me the contact. They are no longer there. It replaced a manual antenna that was mounted in the right rear. From the paint around the hole, the manual antenna that was th...

Hi. I just went and looked at the headliner and 028 is the pattern I have as well.

Re: Windshield Washer Pump

Thanks Kerry. We missed you last weekend. I also searched this site and found a very old post (I think it was yours) pointing to Dennis McCann and giving part number 4105576 which his site quotes at $40. Too late to call tonight. The picture that John Vardanian posted on FChat is exactly like the on...

Windshield Washer Pump

The floor pump mechanism in the car is not working. You can pump it forever and no water will squirt out of the sprayers. I thought that there might be a possibility of rebuilding it. Tom Y said that it was only held in by two nuts so I removed it a little while ago. It certainly doesn't appear to b...

Re: The 2009 Radcliffe Motorcar/ Tomyang.net Spring Event

I am planning on meeting Yale in NYC and then driving down with him. When I spoke to Radcliffe las week they said that they had about 60 cars registered.

I look forward to seeing you all.

Re: Weeping Heater Hoses

Well, I have to admit that the idea of tasting the sort of gooey stuff is not very appealing, it would probably ruin my minimal ability to enjoy a decent bottle of Burgundy. I did do the finger roll and smell tests but other then it was kind of greasy and didn't have much of a smell I couldn't tell ...

Weeping Heater Hoses

A few weeks ago I opened the hood to check up on things and maybe clean another item or two. To my surprise, the heater hoses coming up on the wheel enclosure on the driver;s side were very shiny and wet. I put my finger on the wet area and it seemed to be thickish radiator fluid. I looked all aroun...
