This could be a tough one. Eitel Cantoni was from Uruguay and competed in 3 GP races in 1952 for Maserati. I'm looking for information on his life before and after that.

Cheers

Phil

I thought this would be tough. Any suggestions?

I think some of us would be happier to respond if we knew why you keep asking all these questions, and if we felt you had taken the trouble to do some research of your own rather than expecting us to do it for you
The 'Search BB' facility should produce plenty, also:

And after you've been through that you could also try

I'm not answering - I'm directing the enquirer to sources for his own research

I must really speak out here.
I'm with David on this thought.
I think most of us on this Forum are true enthusiasts and when we have a question, it's because we just genuinely want to know for our own personal benefit.
We also have some people on the Forum who do do commercail work but they do not hide that fact and we, as a group, don't mind that.
When someone keeps asking question after question (and I'm not directing that particularly at this post), I think it would just be 'polite' to say that "I doing and article for 'so and so' magazine or I'm writing a book, or I'm researching a car for an owner, etc.".
I have been more than generous with what information I can offer, but recently I have been burnt badly by someone whom I thought was an enthusiast asking for help. Next thing I know, my help to this person is offered for sale on the web.
Some might say that I should ask first but where I come from trust used to be first, dishonesty second. It just doesn't seem so any more.
Sorry for the rant, but this should enliven this forum.
Cheers,
Barrie

Hear, Hear.

I'd be perfectly happy to give a little more detail on some if I knew what it was for. Is it for a website, a personal project etc?

and how much have you researched already? Have you used google & all the other links sites.

Also, you're quite vague on what you actually want. Results? Personality? Dates?


I'd appreciate a wider explanation, because then I can give you better answers.

The question has been asked before in the Phil Cade thread.

This is Philsy's answer.

Well, the answer was as clear as mud, and very ambigious. I'd just appreciate slightly more clarity.

I'm happy to give info about their activities after racing, but not if I find that information is copied onto a website that might rival WATN. I've got enough problems with that already.

To Barrie and Richie , thank for enlightening me , I admit :smoking: I was a bit naive , having forgotten my own bad experiences in the lorry/truck picture world. I also have learned to trust ,so I do see your points and I wont hesitate to thank all who has helped me on this thread!

I will not tolerate TNF members' generosity and time being wasted attempting to furnish information for the benefit of individuals who a) can't be arsed to do the nitty-gritty themselves, and b) aren't forthcoming or up-front regarding their motives when they initially ask their question[s]. It's an entirely different deal when established members skip this etiquette, as often it's because they're up against a deadline and need info fast.

This thread is now closed, and I am now going to review all of Philsy's other threads accordingly.

Sorry to have been a little slow off the mark here, guys...
