Ferrari Kroymans brochures

Today m previous manager hwd up nd brought m m nice presents. During th recent leave h hd bn cleaning out h room nd found a few things h figured tht wld b f m interest. H brought two car magazines frm th nineties featuring Lancia Delta Integrales. H bght thm himself t th time b f th cars. T m surprise h l came up wth two Ferrari Kroymans brochures. H tld m tht somewhere n th eighties h wrote thm a letter t receive Ferrari brochures. Wth th letter h included stamps fr th shipping costs involved. H received a nice letter back wth th provided stamps nd both brochures. Th letter h kept himself bt h handed over th brochures t m. Hw l tht?
 
 

Jan 1999 Magazine Classic & Sportscar Family supercars

I spotted th magazine n Ebay wth a very nice cover:

I lk thm both. Intrtng t see th mentioned price. Whilst th Espada h easily quadrupled n price fr a gd specimen th 400 hardly md up. Although n Mainland Europe prices r a bit better thn n th UK r USA. Whh I find odd thr r now very few RHD left I guess th remaining ones r now shifted between UK, Japan nd Australia. Furthermore I consider th UK th nr 1 car nation (n Europe)  wld expect a higher interest. A fr th USA wld expect a higher interest well n th h never bn officially sold overthere. Bt th r n offer fr relative low prices I guess th Dollar/Euro value plays n mrtnt role well. A a result quite a few h bn imported back t Europe nd t up fr sale overhere. A fr th design f th cars ts clearly a matter f personal taste. Bt apparently th majority r nt very kn n both f thm. A such t mk m wonder wh th Espada considered more lr over th 400. I visited th Lamborghini museum th summer nd mt models wr present except th Espada. Almt similar n th Ferrari Museum n Maranello wr a lot f models r present, except th 365/400/412.

In n case, f one f d happen t h th magazine thn please mk a digital copy nd share t wth m please I n t t n m shared Google drive nd w ll n n t.
