    I recently got a copy of Ferrari by Lehbrink.

    Anyone notice the pictures on pages 118-121. The caption reads SWB CA Spyder. That's not a CA Spyder, is it? I don't think so.

    The car pictured I S a genuine 250 GT SWB California Spider. It has chassis number 2537 GT and at the time of the photos, taken on the Swiss airport Altenrhein near St. Gall, was owned by Swiss collector Engelbert E. Stieger.

    Did many CA Spyders have dashboards like that one?

    Von Trips: Complete bull****!!!
    "Was owned": I mean AT THE TIME the photos were taken (happened a few years ago) it belonged to Stieger. That doesn't mean that he sold it! Read more carefully, please.

    sorry - i have no pic from the dashboard. when i saw the car in 2001 is was the dark age of digital photography with limited storing space. but i think you can see it in the above named book. it looks a little like the dashboard of a PF cabriolet S2.
