The owner wrote this note to me:

“Just want to let you know that you’re doing a great job with this website. I look forward to your posting each day.

Now, I can’t give you an exact date, but somewhere between 1969 and 1971-2? I used to go to my office in NYC and on the way pass by the shipping docks where many Euro exotic cars were being received. One day I distinctly remember seeing a Grifo with a targa roof bar just sitting next to some other Grifos and knew it was special.

I also left my Aston ’67 DB6 on consignment with a showroom on the North Shore of Long Island NY in the mid 70s and remember seeing a Bizzarrini 5300 GT Strada in the yard behind the showroom on flat tires and in total disrepair…what a shame! My Aston sold for about $6,500. That wasn’t so bad, as I also sold a ’66 275 GTB Long Nose torque tube for $6,700 in 1972. I could go on and on with so many cars that I sold and wish I had today… However, the one car that I have kept the longest (since 1985) and really have loved, and is so underappreciated by most, is my 1974 black Bora that I’ve listed on your site. I’m now having second thoughts about selling it now as I feel this car will be the last to catch on and make its upward trend. Too many believe the hydraulics are a detriment but as an owner that has never been a problem and is a pretty cool and unique feature on this great car. FWIW

Keep up the great work,”

We have a few readers who lived in New York at that time and may remember seeing the same Grifo Targa and Bizzarrini that you saw. Does anyone remember these cars? I believe the Grifo Spider was there then.

Also, flattery in any form is appreciated.
