    Any recommendations for a pre purchase inspection for a 348 in the Pittsburgh, PA area? Need someone qualified to do a compression and leak down test on a 1992 348 TS Challenge.

    Thank you, jnk.

    I’ve been trying to find a competent Ferrari mechanic in Pittsburgh for years.

    Do you know if Giuseppe De Felice is still working? He was working for Frank Z. the last time I saw him, but that was years ago.
    Easily one of the best around.

    Yes.

    He had done the work on my Dad’s 308 before Dad passed away. But Giuseppe does less and less work now.

    Yes he is good. When My 330 needs something he is the go-to guy.

    Cheers

    Giuseppe is the best.

    He just did a major major on my 308. And said it was really “tight”.

    He does work for a lot of shops. I got him through Bellisario's in very South Oakland.

    He truly is!

    I would love to reach out to him just to say hi, but it's been years and I've lost his number.

    Matt, would you please send me a PM with his contact info?

    Thanks!

    Like I said, I don’t have his number.

    He works on my car through Joe Bellisario.

    i see guiseppe at least once/year. my '87 328 is geriatric in ferrari terms , but he always manages to keep her healthy.
    sadly like all of us approaching our "3 score and ten", he is working less due to his health. but then i drive her less for the same reason.
    he works in one of frank's garages in arnold,pa near the river and a friend's shop near monroeville.
    he is very good to me and i cherish his attention to my needs and really his friendship. i was very lucky he agreed to always take care of her!

    his phone # 412-612-1877.
