Re: I want this.......

Very pretty!!

Don't think anyone could afford a Spider at that price though.
I think he doesn't really want to sell it....

Lovely little 'Twinny Cammy', on the ascent F? Interest Free Loan? I'd find a space for one of those in my garage, if I had the spondula.:

That's BEAUTIFUL

Re: I want this.......

An absolute peach, and I'm guessing virtually unique in that condition. Still can't afford it though and you'd need a heated garage as well.

Re: I want this.......

That interior looks . If you are going to spend that much on a classic Spider restoration, at least make it original !.... sorry just my opinion. That rest of the car is very nice though

Re: I want this.......

I agree price os way too high and interior is questionable, but it's still a beautiful restoration.

Oz's option at Labinjoh's in Edinburgh is probably more up my street, but about 1 yr too early .

Re: I want this.......

i bought my GTV6 from Lombarda. I still have the keyring :-)

I was looking at their site at the weekend and I saw that blue Spider. I like the colour...not quite so keen on the price, lol!

They are both beautiful, but the round-tail is probably more the kind of thing I'm really looking for. Let's just hope for a good business year and then some good cars to be available in 2009

Re: I want this.......

I bought a S4 Spider from Lombarda in December and had a good look at this car when I was there. Its superb. Total nut and bolt rebuild done properly.

The price is high, yes, but do this yourself and you'll be looking at more. The colour does take some getting used to but is 10 times better in the flesh than in the pics.

Re: I want this.......

Very interesting paint codes from the 60's : Guess they may of all been a cellulose type paint. Or, as was the case in Germany thereabouts, time wise, a synthetic, safer type?:
