    Did David Arents own it at the time or did he just drive for Chinetti?

    I like the black sides.

    Are you sure that's Nassau? It looks like a picture I recall having been taken in Sebring, in town, not at the track.

    0258 MM later received two massive rear view mirrors on each fender, the EE license plates were removed and the car was fitted with whitewall tires.

    He was wealthy. I believe his family had something to do with the tobacco business, perhaps cigarette-manufacturing machinery. I don't believe George was active in the business. There are some rather flamboyant stories about him around Miami and at Ferrari club events. I'll leave the details to the eye witnesses.....
