Larry Ellison

Just felt like starting a new thread. Does anyone know which McLaren F1 Larry Ellison owns? From what I've looked up, it's silver. But that isn't much help.


P.S. Finally got Driving Ambition, and now I am a happy man. I would be immeasurably happier if I got a McLaren F1 to go with it.

Hi~~
Did you get "Driving Ambition" ? how did you get and how much?
Because there is no Driving Ambition in korea.

way.

Which means that Musk's car cannot be #067 and must be something different, or Ellison sold his car to Musk which I doubt. Chris, what were the chassis numbers on the two Petrik cars? Do you know? I recall an old post from gerd where he listed them, maybe I should search for that...

This is getting frustrating.

Re: Larry Ellison

042 - Petric (Now Musk's based on elimination and color)
045 - Petric (Newport Autosport Car)

Well #042 can't be accurate for one of Petrik's because we verified with certainty that chassis number belongs to Carl Beal's F1. He bought his car direct from McLaren in 1997, not from Petrik. Something is screwy with your list there. I'm not blaming you of course, but it appears your source might have gotten a few things wrong.

I'm going to search for old threads from gerd - I think he spelled it all out a while ago. Maybe he was wrong though too.

That coming from Randy Wells, and I think he would be reliable considering beal even said "he has the car".

I bought it on www.amazon.com for $65.95
The publishing company is Virgin, and they also have it on their website at www.virginbooks.com

Yeah - that can't be accurate at all. It seems your list may be the one in need of revision.

I dunno - someone want to call Oracle and ask for him?

Could be #067 or it could be something else. I guess there's no definitive answer at this point.

I see. Well, we'll have a complete list one day, one day..................... or not.

Here's somthing interesting, and it happened at work, right after my last post. A library patron came with a box of books to donate (yes, I work at a library). So, I took the box to it's proper location to unload. As I opened the box, LO AND BEHOLD, there was a big book, with a picture of none other than a silver McLaren F1 roadcar. I was like "HOLY SHITE !!!!", (ofcourse I didn't say it out loud, and it wouldn't have mattered since I was in a vacant storage room). Anyways, as it turned out, the McLaren was on the back cover of the book, which is called "Classic Automobiles" by Michael Bowler, for those who care. Long story short, I now own the book, thanks to the fact that I was allowed to keep the book, since we have gotten so many donations (i'll pay $1.50, since that is the cost for hard cover books in our upcoming book sale). It would have been a more awesome coincidence if a McLaren pulled up as I left the library.
