From Olaf in Germany

"Hello, Last week I bought the Indy you can see in the photos I send with this mail. I hope you can help me to find answers to my questions.

The chassis number of the car is AM 116 522, exterior colour something like Mercedes Benz diamond black metallic, interior black/red. First owner was the Sultan of Oman, the second his son and the third the UK Ambassador in Oman. The car is complete, no parts missing, engine not running since 1992, mileage on the speedometer is 78000 km.

The interior is in really good condition, no scratches or marks on the leather surface, it only needs to be cleaned. I found the car in an old mill, chickens running all over it......

Somedody has welded new sills and various other small patch panels on the underside of the car, but not on the floor section which is in good condition.

My first question is, if the interior is original, second if the exterior colour not may be only simply black?

Hope hearing from you soon and best regards,


From Jarle in Norway


Once again, thank you for a great site.

There is one thing I have been wondering about. Do you know David Askew?

In Europe there are not to many people selling used Maserati parts, but he does. He has a lot of really good used parts, and he is also a 100% trustworthy and nice fella! He is my majort parts supplier, and has saved me from HIGHLY expensive repairs several times. I know for sure a lot of people do not know of him, and I truly feel he is a huge resource for the Maserati community.

Anyway, just wanted to tell you so.

Sincere greetings,



I am fine! And so is my car. I sold my previous car and parts cars, to buy a 1991 2.24v. Not sure if you know.

I have included some pictures of my car from this summer.


I have now driven the car for 13,000 kms, during oil changes it uses absolutely no oil, and I've no problems with it at all. It's simply a very good quality car. There is a big difference in build quality from the earlier models for sure. I would recommend running a post '89 Maserati as an everyday car to anyone.

The car has been serviced at Candini of Modena, so it was really well treated by the former owner. I guess this is where the secret lies.

We'll chat more later!



From Miguel in Portugal

"Caro Enrico,

Just for fun, I would like to inform you that in Portuguese, welcome, is 'Benvindos'. I think you can update your site's opening page.

Now for something completely new.

I'm about to draw and put up to experience a solution, at least I hope, to the only lack of Research & Developement, derived problem, that all the Biturbos face, till the Ghibli era. The insufficient gasoline flow under "hard" driving while cornering at high speed, to the left.

In "my" beloved 4.24v. I only felt the problem, when I reach the reserve, more or less, 10 to 12 liters. In the 2.24v. the problem is "bigger". Far from the reserve "point", 25 to 30 liters, I begin to face the lack of gasoline to the engine, while cornering to the left.

I guess if I install a Ghibli system, a tank with the fuel pump and fuel filter inside, the problem will be solved. But that, wouldn't be dealing with the problem.

So, for you, "hard minded", like me, are there any ideas?

I will draw a new system from scratch, put in consideration, for the Enrico's site visitors, hoping that a final solution can be achieved.

Any ideas, should be, adressed to Enrico's site, making the information available to all of us.



From Luis in Spain

"Hi Enrico,

Great site! I'm a Spanish modelmaker and owner of two Maseratis, a 1989 Karif bought four years ago and a 1995 Ghibli ABS bought three years ago. The Birdcage is a 1/24 scale model. I mainly build 1/43 scale straight from the box.




"I built the birdcage over a very bad kit of ABC/Brianza, item: 24.03 (see photo). All the engine and interior was self scratch-built, I have several Maserati books! The frame was made of plastic rod in different gauges, I took a month to built the entire car...but what a month!"

From Miguel in Portugal

"Dear Enrico,

I hope yoy enjoy the photos of my 2.24v., as you can see, it is in almost new condition.

By the way, the guy in the photo, itīs me.
