    ...it is my extreme pleasure to present to you a 1953 Tojeiro MG; only one of three ever made: LOY 501.

    Today wasn't a 'shirt & tie' day here at The Ferrari Market Letter, no sir. It was a 'take the Tojeiro out of hiding, wash it and take it for a spin' day. That's right. This morning, 'work' consisted of Gerald, my senior co-worker and i removing the cover from this once-driven-by-Stirling Moss racecar and washing it. Once the shiny side was actually shiny, Gerald was only too eager to take 'er out for a spin. We each got a turn riding with Gerald and it was something i'll never forget; aside from being an actual, real racecar, it's also the first right-hand drive car of any kind, that i've EVER been in.

    So anyway, here are some pictures of LOY 501, post wash; the last picture is of Gerald and i, having just returned from a jaunt through the neighborhood, scaring the sh_t out of the locals. :)

    Carbon, the image of you in LOY 501 in a tank top and clear safety goggles is an image I will unfortunately never forget :)

    Congratulations buddy! Awesome ride!!! Your making me jealous!! Ask Gerald if he needs any help. I could even be the official FML photographer at the Concours :) You write the article, I take the pictures!

    Geez, NNO, the Sundown Metallic pink Z3 in background is almost as rare, but more saleproof :D

    Jordan, ordinarily, i'd say that i would want as much credit in the market letter - both pictures and articles - as i can get... But with the pictures you've posted lately, that's actually not a bad idea...

    Jerry, yes, the dials on the car are green...


    Chris, Peter, thank you...


    Pat, Alan, LOL...


    Dale, yes, that's a black cherry 1959 Morris Minor 1000 in the background... Maybe i'll post pictures of that, tomorrow if i have time...


    Alan, i just got back from Harley; picked up some cool goggles; Gerald's got an old leather skull cap i can use... Now all i need is the 'flying ace' silk scarf and i'll be set...! :)


    Sfumato, the pink Z3 in the background belongs to my co-worker... i happen to like it a LOT (of course, i've always liked the color pink); it's a very rare color since they didn't use it on production models, only display models... i think it's very cool...


    Dave, thanks for giving them the idea and turning this thread into complete mayhem...

    ...i knew i could count on you. :)


    Thanks, Michael... How's Savannah...? We gotta hang one of these days...
