Avoid Conflicts with Pre-Sale Inspections

1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4

I’ve been selling Enzo-era cars since there were only Enzo-era cars. It is both interesting and telling that the Enzo-era cars (built from 1947 to 1974) closely parallel my age group—the all-too-rapidly aging Baby-Boomers (born between 1946 and 1964). When it comes to age, much like the Baby-Boomers, almost all of the Enzo-era cars are now on the wrong side of the big “4-0.”

The daily morning look in the mirror reminds us of the passage of time, from thinning hair to the morning’s aches and pains. Alas, many owners of older Ferraris choose to be in denial to similar idiosyncrasies and weaknesses with their cars.
