  1. I came across this fabulous and very illuminating and personal interview with Bill Noon.

    I have admired Bill ever since I purchased my 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB Daytona on November 17, 1993 from him one Saturday afternoon when I stumbled across the Symbolic web site back in 1993.

    Bill guided me thoughtfully away from the 365 GTC they had in stick as a low priced tickler that I was calling for which he described as junk. I was really taken aback and challenged him to tell me what they had that was not junk. I got a two hour Daytona education and chose an unrestored , carefully maintained car in lieu of choosing from a fully restored model that also had on offer. Bill was a great tutor and I adore that car knowing it came through his hands to this day. I was so delighted to hear his life story. Sincerely, Randolph.
