"I purchased this car in 1976 from John Hadjuk.  It was silver with a silver hardtop.  It had the wire mesh headlight covers that were in the photo published in *The Spyder California, A Ferrari of Particular Distinction* by George M. Carrick (Page 69).  The car was previously owned by Peter Helm in the state of California (I have the old registration slips).  The wire mesh headlight covers were added, I believe, after the car's front end was damaged.  I inspected the nose of the car and found thick Bondo covering dented and torn metal. I then had Hadjuk rebuild the engine and transmission and detail the engine compartment, also installed a complete rear axle from a 250 PF Coupe because the California's axle needed to be rebuilt.  The 250 PF had overdrive, so the rear axle ratio was too low for highway driving.  I sold both axles with the car to Mulacek. Dr. Ron Mulacek replaced the nose of the car when he restored it." Roger Meiners
