1985 Ferrari 288 GTO: Only 700 KM
Today I had a rare opportunity to inspect a 1995 Ferrari 288 GTO that only has 700 kilometers since new.   It was kept in a building in the east coast and was always covered in dust.  My mechanic was chosen to do its first engine out service.  The service will require a much needed belt replacement and for that reason the car will not be started.   A compression test was performed and it was excellent.   All Ferrari 288 GTO cars were grey market cars brought into the USA.   None of these cars were ever officially sold here.

Arizona Trip  6/4/117
I just made a drive to Surprise, Arizona to get some business done.   Shockingly it was 109 degrees in a small town called Surprise.  Its a city filled with golf carts and every major store has golf cart parking near the front entrance.   I was amazed at how cheap gas is in Arizona.  The cheapest I found was $2.19 / gallon.   It seems us Californians pay an additional  one dollar extra in taxes per gallon!   The heat was unbearable for a guy who is used to California beach weather.    I was able to get all my business done and enjoyed the short trip overall.

Spotted:  Ferrari Dino 246 GT Marrone Dino Metallizaato
I was driving on La Cienega in Los Angeles and I spotted this Dino 246 GT in a very desirable color of Marrone Dino Metallizzato coming in my direction.   I didnt have my phone ready but was able to catch a glimpse of it through my side mirror.   You dont get to see one of these everyday.  Very cool!
