    For anyone that lives close to Philadelphia there is a 375 MM on display in the vintage section of the Philadelphia Auto Show. The car is owned locally (outside of Philly) and appears to be very original. I wish I had my camera last night to snap a few photos. If I get out to the show again this week I'll take a few pics and post them. :)

    Hey, lazy; why couldn't you just take pictures while you were there...? Wait, let me guess; you forgot your camera or didn't think to bring one...? Sigh...

    With luck, I'll be out there pretty soon. I'll take pics, but my camera is just awful, so I don't know how they will turn out. I'll post em if I get good ones. Don't hold your breath though, my camera IS that bad.

    Hi, Azzurro - glad to see your post. Unfortunatley, I could not attend. I understand that there are quite a few Ferraris in this general (Philadelphia) area but I've not seen many. I drive mine regularly but rarely encounter another one.

    I did hear about a Lampredi engined coupe in the Quakertown area - might be the one you saw.

    Where in Atlantic City are you? I'm down there almost every weekend - I have a place at the south end, just about in Ventnor.

    Hello Bob,

    If I remember correctly, the placard in front of the car did say that the owner lives in Quakertown so it is probably the same car. I live in Longport currently so you are pretty close by. What kind of F-car do you have? I try to drive mine as much as I can but the weather has not been kind lately. Hopefully I'll get her out in the next few days. We should meet up sometime and go for a ride! :)

    -Augustine

    Hi Bob,
    Which coupe are you referring to? I'm fairly certain that the 375 MM on display is the PF spyder 0360AM of Len Rusiewicz, who does live in Quakertown, PA. Several photos of this car can be found here.

    Hi, Augustine.
    I drive a 1967 GTC.

    I know Longport quite well - an old friend of mine from FCA used to live in the high-rise, just north of that great little restaurant - I can't recall the name of it.

    I usually fly into Bader. Next time I do, pick me up and we'll chat Ferraris over a few beers. Give me a number and I'll call you.
    OK?

    By the way, I think you're right about the 375 owner living in Quakertown.

    Wayne - you mentioned that is was a spider. You're probably right - someone mentioned a coupe but it could well be something else. As you may be aware, there ary many older Ferraris in this area.
    I remember once at the New Hope show, someone looked at my odometer and remarked at the high mileage - 42,000. He about fell over when I told him that it had 142,000, not 42,000.

    I will definitley rebuild it when it comes up to 200,000 (it now has around 160,000)

    There are at least three 375 MMs in Pennsylvania: Len R's car (the one on display), the ex-William Holden 375 MM Spyder owned by Fred Simeone, also in the Philadelphia area, and the ex-Jim Kimberly 375 MM, the one with the cutaway fenders, located in the western part of the state.

    I just got back from the Auto Show - the car is GORGEOUS. Best of all, it was tucked away in a corner, so there wasn't a massive crowd by it, and I was able to take pictures. Once I get them developed/scanned, I'll post some.

    BTW, the sign next to the car was wrong... it said 355MM.

    I just noticed that the placard says that it is a 355 MM and not a 375 MM like I posted. Sorry about that.

    I know this car better than most...
