Progress

I am sad to report little progress. I have been trying to launch a large PE fund focussed on US infrastructure and that has been a very protracted effort, given the financial meltdown a couple of years ago. As a result, I've been trying to arrange some one-off direct deals. Hopefully one of those will pay off this summer or fall and I can support Daron's team in resuming the effort. I hate to let it languish, but no salary since 2006 has begun to be vary painful. Okay, nuff whinging. I do think about the car often!!

No need to be embarrassed at all! Many great & memorable projects require that all the key elements fall into place at the right time, and if that time has to wait a little...so be it....it'll still be the same great project when it resumes again.

I agree: No need to be embarrassed. My projects have slowed down (again) tremendously last year because of the necessary preservation of cash in the current economic climate.

Thanks very much for that support! Daron has done such a great job and I would really like to see it through for him and his team, as well as my own selfish reasons. Best, Lynn

Oh man have they ever! Out of curiosity...where and how did you manage to pick up the car in the first place? And as a follow up (pardon my ignorance of these cars)...how many are believed to be still in existence?

Rossano, I picked the car up from Fantasy Junction in Emeryville, CA. Here's a clip out of Wikipedia on production numbers. I believe many have not survived due to some, um, vulnerable fabrication techniques, lack of coatings, and electrolysis.

"The Sport was built by Zagato, and was also a two-seater. It used the same shorter wheelbase chassis as the GT, and had a very distinctive rounded aluminium body with pop-out handles. The Super Sport replaced the Sport in 1964, with the introduction of the 2.8 L 152 bhp (113 kW) engine. The first Sports had flush covered headlights, later changed to more classic round ones. The Super Sport also saw some changes - the rear was updated to a Kammback, while the front was made more aerodynamic with distinctive tear-shape headlight casings. Until 1967, 593 Sports and Super Sports were built (99 Preseries, 344 Sports, 150 Supersports)."

Happy to report Vintage Customs is a go to revive the resto and Daron and his team are two weeks back into it after two years in storage. That was painful! But through all this Daron was amazingly helpful and patient. I don't know how many people would have been so understanding.

Excellent! Can't wait to see it finished. I'll have to swing by Daron's shop again as it nears completion to see it in person.
