After being preserved as well as possible and getting it in the best condition possible without actually restoring it – the time has come to make a decision… After much thought Sam has come to the realization his Grifo 369 is not a car he will ever dare to drive again, especially after it’s recent full recommissioning. Actually, the mere reason this car still exists like this is the fact that he could not STAND people being that careless around it and risking damage in all kinds of ways. So arrangements have been made to offer it to the public and this will be done at THE best venue for that; the Gooding Pebble Beach Auction in Monterey.
Today it was picked up and it was like saying Goodbye to an old friend. This car has taught me a lot about TRUE originality of Iso Grifos and I was able to add 1000s of detail pictures to my restoration library. I hope it ends up in good hands, this car deserves a special place in a high end collection. Thanks my friend and Happy Trails!
