    Hi All, I spotted this UK car in Australia for the Maserati Global Gathering as it came through Canberra.
    Here is an article about it in the motoring press.

    Why are there rails on the wood? Looks like it's been designed to allow large boxes to be slid into the back. Person sized ones for example...

    Don't like the wheels.

    It belongs to Stephen Dowling, a well known member of the UK Maserati Club. He has an incredible collection of Maseratis and sent several over to Aus for the recent get-together. My understanding is that 5 of his classics were stopped by Customs however and were sent back.

    I read about that. Something to do with asbestos in the brake pads. Or the potential that they have.

    Ridiculous!

    It was more that the ABF (Australian Border Force) wanted to do 'intrusive' testing on the cars (drilling holes etc.) rather than obvious components that had been replaced with non-asbestos parts. Understandably, this was rejected by the owner.

    I don't mind the look of that. Cosmetics could be changed to suit owners taste, but proportions look ok to me.
