"Hi Enrico,

Thought this Maserati story might be of interest to your Maserati enthusiasts. I spotted it on 'The Sydney Morning Herald' web site.

Tell them to be careful where they park if they ever come to Australia.




Forklifts move a lot of old crates ...
but can you count a $110,000 Maserati as an old crate?


Oh dear! It wasn't like this when I parked it!

A former beauty queen looking after her brother's Maserati discovered it looking like an old crate after it was moved and flipped on its roof by a forklift-driving construction worker in Sydney's exclusive Bilyard Avenue in Elizabeth Bay this morning.

Rachel Huljich, a former Kiwi beauty queen who once defied a request from New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark, moved her brother Jason Huljich's $110,000 car to a construction zone in the road two days ago.

When a forklift driver tried to move the Maserati this morning things went horribly wrong when the car fell over the forks two metres off the ground.

Ms Huljich, who has just moved to the area, was put in charge of the 1999 3200 GT Maserati while her brother holidays in South America.

Police have released the construction worker after interviewing him today but have not ruled out charging him, pending further investigations.

Ms Huljich is a former Miss World New Zealand contestant who divided her country when she decided to compete at the 2002 Miss World contest which was supposed to be held in Nigeria, against the wishes of Ms Clark.

The controversy erupted after a Nigerian woman, Amina Lawal, was sentenced to a stoning death for having a child out of wedlock.

Many countries including New Zealand called for a boycott of the contest in light of the death sentence but Ms Huljich, who was 17 at the time, remained defiant.

Ms Clark said at the time it would not be a "good look'' for New Zealand to participate, but the pretty brunette paid little attention.

Her stance divided Kiwis, with many calling for Ms Huljich to bow to the Prime Minister's wishes.

However, following an extremely troubled lead-up, the contest was moved to London and the issue blew over.

Ms Huljich did not make the last round of the competition. Australia's representative Nicole Rita-Gazal was a semi-finalist.

This morning's Maserati drama unfolded after a building worker from SMS Construction hoisted the car into the air with the forklift.

Brad Harrison, a plumber who was working at a building when he came out to get some tools, described what happened.

"He picked up the car with his forklift, and then he turned while it was on, and suddenly the car rolled over and fell on its roof.

"It was a large crunch, the car was rocking [while it was on the forklift] the whole time."

A crowd of up to 50 gathered to inspect the damage, which included a smashed roof and windows.

It is unclear if the car can be salvaged.

"It is very surprising," a stunned Ms Huljich said, adding that her brother was away for another two weeks.

"I haven't decided whether I'll tell him now or when he comes back."

Resident Stephen Gray said workers for SMS Construction had been moving cars in the street with forklifts for some time while they work on a four-storey building.

"They've been doing it for months now," he said. "It's outrageous and just really arrogant."

Inspector Peter Brooks said: "Only council and the police have the right to move cars from a street,'' he said. "We're still contemplating whether or not charges will be laid."

Another resident of Bilyard Avenue, Romain Bonjean, said his BMW was damaged after it was moved by builders from a different construction company about 18 months ago.

"When I confronted the builders, they admitted pushing it so they could fit a crane. I was parked legally.

"The pushing consisted of having three builders repeatedly bouncing the front bonnet. This resulted in my handbrake cable having to be replaced."

"Hi Enrico,

Here are some photos of the InterClassics & TopMobiel 2007 last weekend in Maastricht (Holland).

Nice event, year after year ...

"Hi Maseratisti,

The news of the British government's proposal to introduce road pricing will mean you having to purchase a tracking device for your car and paying a monthly bill to use it.

The tracking device will cost you about £200 and in a recent study by the BBC, the lowest monthly bill was £28 for a rural florist and £194 for a delivery driver.

A non-working Mum who used the car to take the kids to school paid £86 in one month.

On top of this massive increase in tax, you will be tracked. Somebody will know where you are at all times.

They will also know how fast you have been going, so even if you accidentally creep over a speed limit you can expect a NIP (Notice of Intended Prosecution) with your monthly bill.

If you care about our freedoms and stopping the constant bashing of the car driver, please sign the petition on No 10's new website.

Please pass this on to anyone who owns a car/motorcycle. It affects them. Please sign and pass it on. It only takes a minute and if you value your freedom and your pocket, it is well worthwhile. Speak up before it's too late!!!

My fellow Europeans, if you think this proposed British legislation does not affect you, you are sadly mistaken. Make no mistake, if our British Government get away with this, the rest of Europe will soon follow!!"

"Hi Enrico,


From Spain, some pictures from our recent trip to Modena.

Emilio and I decided to go to Modena and take our Ghibli Cups to Candini. In the way back Ramón, president of the /Club Tridente España/ joined us to have some fun. We enjoyed the nice restaurants of Modena and had the oportunity to visit the awesome Panini Collection.

Best Regards,









From Mehmet in Turkey

"Dear Enrico,

Here are a few photos of Turkish racing driver Can Artam and the Maserati MC12 that he co-drove during the FIA GT Championship race at Istanbul Park in 2005.




Also attached are some photos of the Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina — known less formally as “The Glickenhaus Car.” Designed by Jason Castriota and his colleagues at Pinifarina, they were also responsible for Ferrari’s controversial new V-12 599GTB Fiorano and the show-stopping MC12-based Maserati Birdcage concept.

Jim Glikenhaus is a well-known Ferrari enthusiast and collector who commissioned Pininfarina to design this truly exotic supercar which appears to possess traces of the genes from the 1966 Ferrari 330 P4.

With kind regards,

"Hi Enrico,

It's been a long time since we had contact. This may be of interest to your site:


Situated in a workshop in the centre of Holland near Amsterdam (30 km) and Utrecht (20 km), Harm Klijn is the only specialist on the continent who is fully specialised in the repair and reconditioning of the Lucas MK-I and MK-II mechanical Fuel injection system, as fitted to the Maserati Sebring, Mistral, 3500 GT etc. as well as the Triumph TR-5 PI and TR-6 PI ( MK-II ).

As a Lucas Fuel Injection specialist (25 years) we produce most of the difficult parts our selfs such as new Maserati injectors, vacuum pistons and a replacement for the baromatric when it's not working anymore. We have all the "difficult" parts for the Lucas Injection System for Maserati, Triumph TR, MKI and MKII race units. We overhaule Metering Units from all over the world.

The original Maserati injector number 73002A cannot be overhauled, only number 73002B - C - or the N50. Most of the Maserati and Triumph TR original injectors are, after 30 years, in a bad condition. Therefore we decided to make them new, outside and inside with three years guarentee.

We are proud having succeeded in improving this new injector and the result is better then the originals at that time.

The very fine spray at 60 degrease of the new injectors are much better then the "new" originals.

With regards,
