That could be the explanation he could NOT catch me up during the days
The toilets are clean and there is no waitingline at the buffet.
after that 100 cars or 200 people come in
I love that silances before the storm
the FIRST 45 were prewar, no problem for the PF.

Thank you C.
I have not been paying attention to these earlier lights. Triberti is a new one for me. The education is appreciated.

Last thing I can show of 0891GT.
from the PF foto cataloque 1958.
Car didnot have brakes fitted on these pics you can clearly see through the spokes.
So this was before its was at the Milano showroom pics (9)
Where is it today?
the fisrt owner was in the US. see Barchetta.cc
but often wrong info there.
that would implicate it was supplied with US features.

Pardon my commentary from the peanut gallery, without introduction.

When Cornelius is referring to messing, he's not talking about how clean you work. It's German for brass.

And if I may, in regards to his assumption re the advent of the self-canceling column turn signal switch, Lancia used them in the Flaminia Berlinas starting in 1957. I don't know if that was the first use, though.

You can guess my bias.

Love that dealership with all the artwork on the walls.

Regards,
Steve

Thanks Steve welcome on TY
You are probebly right with that switch.
Lancia and Maserati were always ahead with introducing new things.
When I say it was probebly the first, its always referred to Ferraris.
Boano and Europa dont use this.
We alL know the old Enzo statement ,
A horse should be place in front of the carriage not behind.
That statement didnot servive long.
But they were even more relyable
and didnot have so much DNF.

best
