    James Glickenhaus
    (July 24, 1950 --> Presently enjoying life to the full :D)​

    Brief Background: As a successful film director and writer, Jim's greatest professional triumph was with his 1980 revenge film The Exterminator (theatrical trailer) and although no longer active in film making, he continues to enjoy a cult status amongst fans. He's also apparently a pretty handy guy to have around for tips on stocks and investments and has been invited to appear on the Bloomberg TV and Radio program "Talking Stocks" (Me on Bloomberg Today; not yet aired at time of posting).

    Place in the Ferrari Community: Jim is a legend in the Ferrari community. He has an impressive collection of historic Ferraris and Fords, but is best known for his outstanding generosity with his time for car enthusiasts and personal project to fund and direct the development of the Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina - the sole example of a 1960's styled and improved Enzo Ferrari. The journey is detailed in his thread on FerrariChat: The Enzo reimagined.... Jim's Ferrari P 4/5 by Pininfarina. While some have suggested more should be built, Jim has decreed there will only ever be one.


    After completing this project, one can only presume that taking things easy doesn't come easily to Jim and yet another ambitious project has gotten under way to put a P4/5 on the grid for the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring: Scuderia Glickenhaus P4/5 Competizione




    Quite frankly, the P4/5 has taken on a life of it's own, even - dare I say it - making it into the urban dictionary (P 4/5 fived :D) and cannot be adequately covered here... so you'll need to see the original threads, which are still being updated with exciting new developments! Happy reading. ;)









    * * * * *

    I hope that's a good start. Please read it with a view to correct and update it as appropriate. :)

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    The name Ferrari went up in value a few notches because of JG. No doubt for me.

    Congrats on the roast Jim!

    I'd probably never venture out of the vintage section on FC if it were not for Jim's posting on this site ... As a creature of habit I head straight to vintage, inevitably see a post by him there and then click on "find all posts by Napolis"... that list is my "Cliff's Notes" as to what threads are interesting to look at here. Thanks for that Jim! Keep your best wheel sideways!

    All the best,

    Bret
