Title says it all. I'm looking for someone who lives in Mulhouse in France who could take a look at a car for me. I will pay for your time and petrol. Please send me an email or PM. Merci beaucoup.

Try Hearn. Look on page 5 of the latest Registry magazine. His e-mail is listed there.

Ron That would be Marco Marinello. He brokered the purchase of my late friend Bill's 60 Roadster when I helped his widow sell it. And a pleasure to deal with.

Thanks, Doug.
Trivia:
Wife and I were vacationing in Bavaria/CH, and we stopped off to deliver some parts Marco had ordered. He's actually in a district of Zurich called Oerlikon, which any readers of WWII history will recognize as the name of the US Navy 20mm AA gun. They were apparently invented there, and many of the 356 industrial engines powered the post-war 'stand-alone' 20mm AA's. Now you know one other source for those...
During WWII, they were sold to the Germans, and probably Japanese, too. Marco didn't know the US had bought rights and made them in the US. By the ton...
