    Nice video! But there are quite a few more companies which are also 70 years old...or even older:

    - Mercedes Benz
    - BMW
    - Jaguar
    - Alfa Romeo
    - Maserati
    - Porsche
    - Aston Martin
    - Bentley
    - FIAT
    - OPEL
    - Lancia
    - Peugot
    - Renault
    - Ford

    etc.
    So getting 70 years old is not THAT rare...! Most car companies today are older then Ferrari!
    Ok, Chip is big Ferrari fan, so this explains his comments! :)!

    WHAT'S GOING ON HERE??? Already two days and no ridiculing of the film or its location venue for featuring "fakes" without disclosing them as such to unsuspecting public (victims ?) watching this video ?? Interweb guardians of public interest for truth must be asleep at the wheel... or more specifically, their keyboards.
