    I remember visiting Alberto many years ago at Wide World of Cars in Spring Valley, NY.
    Really interesting guy.
    Is he still around?

    He is still around, in good health and living in the Phoenix area.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I met Alberto in the mid 60s.
    I went to WWC in the 80s to pick up a new Biturbo.
    What a nightmare of a car!

    Alberto lives in Scottsdale down the street from me, and had lunch with him last year. Full of great stories and a wealth of knowledge on the old factory goings on. Jim

    I purchased my first new Ferrari from Alberto Pedretti and Jess Pourret author of Le Legend Ferrari 250 GTO back in 1977 on 72nd Street. Back then the other salesmen were Al Meyer, Gene and Alberto's
    I believe son in law Mike Mastrangelo. All great people.at Wide World of cars.

    Thank you Bob for starting this thread. I just started digging into the books from our Miles TR and called Wide World of Cars hoping to track him down for stories and history and sadly the receptionist never heard of him. (What, he doesn’t Snapchat?) But, a quick, post call search revealed this thread! For such a usually outwardly stylish dude I’d love to hear what inspired Miles to go with such conservative color combo (Argento w blue). I’m under the impression Alberto was there at the moment of conception. Or inspiration.
