    That was a great 12 minutes!!! They spent a considerable portion of it with 4293GT, my favorite car of all time. Another large portion of the segment had one of our very very honorable members talking about his experience with the 250 GTO.

    That was some fantastic television!

    I thought that vintage film sequence looked familiar. Way too short a segment, but still enjoyed it!

    The things dreams are made of, a GTO as a daily driver.

    Just saw the show. As with most good things, not enough of it.

    What did you think, Stephen?

    I loved the way the narrator said, "...and Stephen Mitchell's masterpiece GTO now resides in the Ralph Lauren Collection..." as I'm certain that Ralph thinks of it as his masterpeice GTO. :)

    I think that's an accurate statement, considering that it's been scrubbed down and sterilized enough to perform surgery in. :)

    The "I didn't know I couldn't get it back" statement reminded me of a few women I've known. I'd imagine that's about as close as I can get to being in your shoes.

    I still remember this car from the 1963 12 Hours of Sebring, the first race I ever attended. The car was in Mecom Racing livery with Roger Penske and Augie Pabst driving (2 drivers were sufficient back then, thanks). First in class and third or fourth overall, I think.

    Does he keep it in NY? I've seen him driving a bunch of his cars around, but not that. (He almost railed me with his new matte black Lp 670 SV a weeks ago :D)

    Thanks, Terra.

    Kieran, all I know is that RL never attends the GTO anniversary events.
