    It will be sad to see those beauties go! I remember coming to your fathers house every year for his car show/get together and I loved talking cars with him. He has the best stories. My favorite was him driving the 275 GTB up to the lakes in NY.

    Hi David

    Yes he used his cars the way they were meant to be enjoyed. You are probably referring to the 1990 FCA National at Watkins Glen where we trailered the 212 0147E and drove both 275s the entire five hour run, Dad driving the alloy GTB 8069GT and me driving the GTS 7805GT. I remember another owner commenting on the bugs all over the front of the GTB and asking if we had trailered it on an open trailer. He gave me a puzzled look when I told him we drove it to the event.

    My dad would also drive the cars to our lake house in Western New York to go fishing. He'd throw the rod and tackle box in the trunk and just go.

    Still have the picture of both 212s in our yard. He was a special man with great taste in cars.

    Only 5 current pics of 5379GT that I can see on RM Sotheby's web site? Some of the cars in this auction do not have a description.

    Wanted to call him today to wish him happy birthday. Saw his old 275 listed and wanted to call him again. Funny how the mind works

    Bob did the GTB ever find a permanent home or is it still bouncing around the UK?

    No unfortunately. I still have his old 250 GTE that I located and purchased a few years back. I also added his '62 Lancia Flaminia GT and his '71 Alfa Junior Zagato to my garage.

    I suspect the RM Sotheby's site will be updated in next couple of days to reflect auction results of the individual cars
