Here's another ebay auction for the record booooks:


These are certainly   neat / cool   novelty items, and yes, useful for a 
gander at the factory color swatch, but 75 bucks a piece?

I bought mine at a flea market (Seriously! You know, British fleas and 
such.) from a vendor selling them for $1.50 each. Stupid me, I only 
bought one.

On the Bugeye Tire Pump front, the seller involved in the 
record-breaking tire aka tyre pump auction a few weeks back, just won a 
Sutty for $115.00. I guess he wanted to know what a real one looked 
like. :-)

Remember, I'm still collecting Innocenti parts for my mammoth future 
Innocenti restoration project. So, should anyone know the whereabouts of 
stashes of Innocenti Spider Unobtanium, you know who to call. 

I have actually been experiencing some very good luck recently in my 
never-ending Innocenti Spider Parts Quest. Perseverance pays-off. With 
the help of some European suppliers, I have been able to locate and 
acquire a number of detail parts I have been searching for.

The elusive trunk latch remains elusive though. Rumor has it they were 
used on the Ferrari GTO, another high-production car. I don't think I 
want to fight with a GTO owner over one of those. BUT, I will find one, 
or more, someday. Like I said, perseverance pays-off.

PS Somebody on this list better purchase that Bugeye on ebay in Wisconsin!
