Soesrdij Kerstraarweg 66 Hilversum, Nederland Owner's List: Approximate Purchase Date: Mr. Johannes "Hans" Theodorus Bernardus Hugenholtz December 1, 1982 Beethovenlaan 24 - Naaroen, Nederland Mr. Hugenholtz is a famous Dutch race driver, who has raced consecutive years in Le Mans among other venues. He is Interim-C.E.O. of Spyker Cars, Netherlands. He was instrumental in selling Spyker's F1 division to Force India. His father designed most of the world's initial Formula One racing circuits as well as being a founding member of the Ferrari Club Netherlands. He purchased this 308QV at Kroyman's Ferrari, NL. Then, he drove it to Holland (although it was never registered) and shipped it to the next owner, Jim Dolgones, who had it American Federalized in California. IN his own words, "April 14, 2008 Dear Michael, Congratulations with your purchase of the Ferrari 308. I looked at the pics and it looks almost better than in 1983! I only owned this car for a very short time in Holland and shipped it to the US for a buyer. I was doing a bit of grey market exports in those days, mainly to California. Good luck with the car. Regards, John Hugenholtz.

09/94 Mr. John Starner. Mr. Starner has a background in Engineering as well as Auto Racing. In his own words, "Yes I did own 1983 308 GTB QV (Euro model) that I purchased from Mr. Jim Dolgones in Berkley CA. At the time of purchase in late September 1994 the car had approx 19,000 km (12,000 +/- mi.). The history and the paper work that I was provided is that Mr. Dolgones purchased the car new in Europe and drove it there for a couple of weeks then shipped it by air to Los Angeles where it was federalized to meet EPA requirements (cats, etc.). When I purchased the car it was in pristine condition. I have a background in engineering as well in auto racing and with this background (I felt) I maintained the car in great shape. My use of the car was for events held by a local car club in the San Bernardino/Riverside area and the Ferrari Owners Club based in Los Angeles. The activities included car shows, social events, and destination drives (no racing or rallies). When the car left here (June 2004), there were 3 sets of exhaust systems - stock from factory, a garbaged up system that was put on at time of federalizing in L.A., and a Borla stainless system I put on the car and ran all the time. I also purchased new Speedline wheels and put new tires on to replace the factory set. Also, the original wheels and tires (metric) went with the car when it left here as well as a few small parts that were gathered along the way. At about 15,000 mi the engine was removed to replace the cam shaft belts, replaced the differential bolts for the ring gear, replace the water pump, and performed general maintenance within the engine compartment such as checking the CV joints and replace boots. The records that went with the car should show all that. Hope this helps in response to your inquiry about the car. John Starner
