Also I recently found out that a popular guy on FerrariChat is good friends with the guy who imported my car in the 80's. The name on the DOT door jamb sticker (Leo) is the friend and now lives in Frankfurt. So I'm going to give 'ol Leo a call and see what he can tell me as well.

F-Chat guy actually took the New Mexico pic above. Says he hit 155 mph earlier that day lol.

"I've always wondered what happened to that car. My friend Leo Clignett imported it (along with an "ordinary" 911 Targa) back in the early 80s. He had already moved to Frankfurt, Germany (still lives there) but had a place in Santa Fe, NM (next door to Georgia Okeefe) for a while. I took this photo on a drive we took while I was there. I don't believe Leo was the original owner and he sold the car a short time after my visit and returned to Germany.

It looks like a different plate number in the picture from Germany, I suspect it was someone else driving then. When Leo was in Santa Fe (actually Tesuque) he lived with a guy named Gilbert Jimenez who was in the car business. It's possible that he was the next owner after Leo, I don't remember. Leo was my best-man when I got married the first time. I haven't seen him in more than 10 years but we exchange emails once in a great while.

It's a fun car and at the time, was the fastest car I'd ever driven. Had it up to 155 on the way to take the picture. "
