It is great to hear from the Curmudgeon once again. Welcome back, Paul!

Jeez! You'd think Italy would be happy to get back one of their own cars built to better emissions and crash standards.This makes me wonder if it wouldn't be better to just sell your car domestically, then just buy another one once you're in country.

I had enough trouble getting all of my household stuff to New Zealand, glad I didn't try to bring any cars. 'Course, driving on the "wrong" side of the road made the decision somewhat easier...

I did first consider this. Both cars are rare examples, with less than 100 of each ever made (if you include color, which is inportant to me.) They're also dead reliable and the result of long searches.

I checked the InterWeb in Italy to see if any of each was available. Very uncommon, as in "nada". So I decided to brong them with.

I'm three blocks from the Maserati factory. I saw many more Maseratis in SF than here, by a factor of 20:1 or more...
