Why did we sell number 37, the yellow one? Frankly, it wasn't being driven enough. I bought it for my wife, in 2004, for our anniversary. She got off to a rocky start with Giallo, as we called it, because she was pregnant at the time with daughter Susy, and I mean REALLY pregnant! Like, did not fit behind the steering wheel, pregnant!
Anyway, over the years, she got busier as a working Mom, and pretty much left Giallo to son Mike and me. We had to drive it once in a while just to keep it roadworthy. She finally admitted she had more or less lost interest, and suggested we sell it. Enter a gentleman from Sicily, a BB'er, who had been looking for a nice CE for several years. Tony had a pristine '66 Duetto, and he really wanted a CE to complete his pair of bookend Spiders. Plus the bragging rights of having a North American market CE back home in Italy! We came to a deal, he arranged shipping and pickup, and Giallo went home in 2014, IIRC. Giallo got stripped down, completely refurbished, and became a stunning weekend driver and show car.
