Described as one of the least used and lowest ownership examples of the D Type Jag – XKD 534

July 20th, 2017 by admin

Shipped to Wellington from the Midland’s dealership Attwood’s, it was race-prepared for local enthusiast Sam Gibbons to enter for his son Bob. He drove it in the New Zealand Grand Prix meeting at Ardmore Aerodrome in 1957. During the race leading British driver Ken Wharton fatally crashed, but Gibbons won, beating Jack Brabham into second place.

During the 1957-58 season Gibbons also won the Ken Wharton Memorial Trophy at Ardmore but at Dunedin hit a trackside post. The car was then sold to sheep farmer Angus Hyslop, who raced it in a programme of New Zealand events during the early 1960s and took the car to Europe.

During his ownership a new 3.8 litre D-Type short block engine was imported and installed. Ownership then passed to fellow New Zealander Simon Taylor who won the Ken Wharton Memorial Trophy in 1962. After one other change of ownership, it ended up in 1964 with Noel Foster

Foster didn’t use the D-type for competition, savouring it instead for fun driving on high days and holidays on the rural roads of New Zealand’s north island. His son – also Noel – recalls that “Dad used to commute in a Brooklands Riley, but said it took him 30 minutes each way. Once he tried the D-type and cut 10 minutes off his time, so he took to using it regularly”.

the GTOs in the Bardinon family. French tax authorities would love to dial in their value, and get their cut. It might be a 75 or 200 million dollar collection

July 18th, 2017 by admin

Last Feb, the family, squabbling over inheritance, etc, sold just one of these for 38.5 million dollars. That immediately slapped the French govt in the wallet, and they liked the way that tax money felt. The French govt wants more. All they can get

Making it difficult for them, is that rich people over appraise the things they give to charity, and undervalue things they sell and get taxed on.

The Bardinon Ferraris brought the issue to the world stage. Pierre Bardinon, born in 1931, was an heir to the Chapal family, a French leather and fur dynasty famed for making pilot bomber jackets. As a boy, Bardinon fell ian love with cars and started buying old racing Ferraris in the 1960s, when few other collectors were interested in them.

He went on to buy more than 70 rare Ferraris.

He turned the family chateau at Mas du Clos, near Aubusson, into a Ferrari playground, with a museum housing the cars, and a two-mile racetrack.

He built his own circuit on his estate for trackdays and personal use, the layout was designed without too strong braking, so that the old drum brakes did not suffer too much, he loved his cars that much.

Although it was closed around a decade ago because he was suffering bureaucratic rubbish about needing to adhere to modern safety regulations at vast expense – when the circuit was not used for racing purposes in the true sense of the word.

The Ferrari collection had dwindled to around 20 cars by 2012, as Mr. Bardinon sold them off.

He had a butler who blackmailed him. He told him that either he would pay him or he would tell the French govt the real value of all the cars he had stored. Bardinon refused, the butler “sang” and from there he had to start selling cars and the thing began to decline.

After Mr. Bardinon died in 2012, and his wife a year later, the French government levied an inheritance tax of millions of dollars on their three children, according to court documents. The Bardinon siblings are now battling in court over the future of the collection.

Marcel Massini, a Geneva-based Ferrari historian who knew Mr. Bardinon and frequently inspected the collection, said the remaining cars in the Bardinon collection could be worth over $200 million. He said at least three of them could fetch over $30 million each in today’s market.

“These are like the Mona Lisas of the Ferrari world,” he said. “They are the best of the best.”

And yet for tax purposes, certain members of the family valued the entire collection at 70 million euros, according to court documents.

As the court fight continued, two of the siblings decided to auction off a trophy of the collection, a 1957 Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti

Wealthy collectors hope that the situation could lead to more of the Bardinon Ferraris being up for sale.

There are a lot of billionaires in the world who want these cars. Bardinon started collecting competition Ferrari long before the current vogue – and had numerous of the Ferrari big hitters such as a ‘64 250 GTO, 330 P4, 250 LM, 312 PB, Competition 250 SWB etc

He looked for and bought the most beautiful Ferraris of the world. Tracking the most prestigious models of competition (almost exclusively cars of the factory stable), he acquired a unique set that included the
250 TR and 330 TRI / LM Victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, respectively in 1958 and 1962 (both with Olivier Gendebien and Phil Hill),
the 250 GT victory in the Tour de France 1961 (chassis No. 2937GT, formerly W.Mairesse-G.Berger) The 312P ex-P. Rodriguez-D.Piper (n ° 0870),
330 P4 (n ° 0860) or GTO 1964 (n ° 5573GT)

Last November the highway on the coast of New Zealand was buried after an earthquake, by the side of a mountain. This spring, a landslide buried a highway in California by Big Sur. Wouldn’t it make sense for the constrcution company in New Zealand to come to California after they finish there?

July 10th, 2017 by admin

1000 men and women working to repair the quake-damaged highway and rail route along the Kaikoura coast.

Massive slips, triggered by last November’s 7.8 magnitude earthquake, dumped more than 700,000 cubic metres of material – rock, soil and shingle – much of it onto State Highway 1.

Bridges are being built, debris cleared, and whole sections of SH1 and the rail line realigned.

crazy woman hits Canadian construction zone flagger, then escapes and is arrested nearby for assaulting her kids. (thanks Andrew!)

June 30th, 2017 by admin

A driver in a white Hyundai crossover — whose licence plate is visible — can be seen trying to merge into the stream of traffic from a lane closed for repaving. Orange lane posts can be seen separating the two lanes. Directly in front of the vehicle just metres away is an orange post and a flagger in a high-visibility uniform with a stop sign.

About 39 seconds into the video, the SUV begins to move even though there does not appear to be a gap in traffic. The flagger then steps forward with her stop sign held up, but the vehicle proceeds to hit the flagger and the post, and continue on to overtake the vehicle driving slightly ahead of it.

The flagger can be seen being pushed up against the hood of the SUV before being knocked to the side and partially under the vehicle.

The online video of the hit-and-run sparked outrage, with many flaggers calling for attempted murder or assault with a deadly weapon charges.

“They’re threatening to shut bridges down during rush hour,” group co-founder Diane Herback told CBC’s Early Edition. “The flaggers have had enough.”

Illegal ‘recapped’ tires cause I-95 crash, and closes north lanes for 3 hours

June 23rd, 2017 by admin

an illegal recapped front tire on an Allied Movers went flat causing the large truck to hit the interstate guardrail and overturn, blocking all three lanes of northbound traffic.

Florida Highway Patrol said the driver and passenger of the moving truck were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Troopers said 35 gallons of diesel fuel and the victims’ possessions that were being moved spilled onto the interstate.

Taylor explained that tread being re-added to tires is an illegal practice usually done on commercial vehicles like the large moving truck, because recapped tires are less than 1/2 the cost of new tires.

FHP is investigating whether the South Florida driver and the passenger who rented the truck or the truck company itself will be liable for the crash.
