    To everyone who read my message about the book, BELLA MANGUSTA. I will keep the Forum (pantera.infopop) posted about availability.
    I would appreciate it if everyone reading this would also pass on the word that it is coming to others who may be interested.

    It is going be reasonable in price and a great book to have.

    Thanks,
    All the best,
    Dick Ruzzin


    “BELLA MANGUSTA”
    A new book about the Italian Art and Design that is presented in the DeTomaso Mangusta.
    Written and photographed by Dick Ruzzin / 5-10-2016

    _______________________________________________
    VISION STATEMENT
    TEXT:
    I have created a book that focuses on the aesthetic design of the Mangusta and it's racing chassis, the related artistic history of Italy, the Mangusta designer and the design development and construction of the car. The key people involved will be featured as well as the car itself.

    IMAGES:
    The book will be perceived as an art piece. A large number of images with high contrast that are visually entertaining will be used covering the interior, exterior and engine compartment of 8MA670. All images are full color taken at two dramatic venues, one in the snow on a 12 degree day, the other on a spring day at a historic home on Grosse Pointe Shores outside of Detroit.

    >The book should be a &#8220;must have&#8221; simply for its visual appearance. Read this book and you will know more about the Mangustathan 99% of those who own one<

    AVAILABILITY:
    The 50th anniversary of the creation of the Mangusta will be celebrated in late August of 2016 in Monterey California at the Concourso Italiano. The book should be ready for that event. A press event and reveal can be staged there.

    MISSION STATEMENT

    >Text:
    A 7000 word text has been written, refined and sent to a number of professionals who have returned comments and corrections.

    >Images now available:
    Seventy-one color images of 8MA670 are included.


    >Title:
    ROMAN sd has been chosen for the title font, it is seen cut in stone on Roman buildings, slightly modified with some creative design in execution.

    Special drawings have been creates and included in the book. They are four view scale drawing of the production version of the car, black with a red grid system

    >Endorsements:
    Italian car historian Pete Vack from VeloceToday has made a wonderful endorsment that will be presented on the back page of the dust-cover. Others will be asked to endorse the book.

    >Support Websites:
    A sales website will be and marketing will be pursued.
    Support will appear on Veloce/Today.com and DeansGarage.com also.
    VeloceToday.com will put a series of three segments from the book, edited by Pete Vack and completed by August, they are already appearing.

    All the best,
    Dick Ruzzin

    This should be a great book, Dick knows his stuff. He's said he wanted to talk about the look & the beauty of the Mangusta, something other books have not gotten into.

    I wonder if the color is original. If so, that's the way to go.

    Wouldn't be my first choice of colors, but it's interesting and unusual.


    There are quite a few incorrect items on this goose, but could be fixed.

    Asking price seems reasonable.

    An agreement has been reached to purchase the car and it will stay here in the States. The seller claims the car is two owner and has been with it's current owner since 1970 when he paid $10K for the car. As far as I know that is the original color.
    Oddly I was made aware of another Mangusta which was originally that same color(bronze) recentlty.
    I will share more info when I am permitted to.

    I have this custom made Mangusta sign with frame (not old). And these very rare cloth patches for a race car suit, jacket or pit crew. $45 for all plus shipping. I do not have or use paypal. Ferrari sign not for sale. The sign is aluminum, the frame is plastic. Lower 48 only.

    Right? Seems there are more long term owners of Mangusta's than most other exotics. They were so freakin cool when new, you always knew you had something special. At least to look at :)

    Not all cars had one.

    Also if your car is a 1970 then it most probably was completed in Germany. Does your car have the hand brake on the floor. One more reason :)
