    Wow, what a gathering! Club event?

    It'd be interesting to know what that group of cars was worth back then compared to today.

    If not mistaken, that was the Ferrari Club of America Annual Meeting of 1977, back when the FCA meet was the major Ferrari event in the US with few, if any, of the numerous event options there are today other than Pebble Beach at the time. I attended this event at Watkins Glen, and it was a blast, absolute fun. An incredible entry, with wide variety of early competition and road cars, all running on the full Watkins Glen circuit. None of the pressure of today, cars were driven, and the several examples of higher level restorations were appreciated for setting an evolving standard. It was my first experience seeing in person a 250GTO, a 250TR, a Series I Cabriolet, etc., etc. - Fitzgerald and Merritt on display..... Those were the days indeed Marcel!

    Watkins Glen 1977: I spent the whole afternoon taking people rides in the 212 Export Barchetta (0158ED) at the right of the photo. Joe and Carol Pendergast brought that car and a 212 Inter. Joe gave me the keys to the Barchetta and told me to take people rides, so I did.

    Marcel - can you say who owns 6045 today? If not, can you say where the car lives now?

    According to Cavallino 2 LM's were present during the FF40, 5843 and 6313 so that's why I believe this is 5843.
