    Very crisp images thank you! Looks like a 1957 Lincoln Mk. II in the background and a 1965 Buick Skylark convertible.

    Sorry to go off topic here..
    Beyond just introducing me to some amazing cars and adventures, Bill was a great friend and mentor. I was lucky to meet him when I was in college. He was further along in life, established, and 'who he was' was set in stone. His character and integrity were unparalleled. I've often referred back to that. To this day I'm grateful for the impact Bill had on my growth and development as a person.
    He is missed.

    Bill was a kind and remarkable man by any measure, he left us much too soon.

    10271 is a later series build considering 10287 was a Daytona prototype.
    Neat to see then and now pictures with just the rear fender mounted antenna gone and the 275 GTB/4 looking all new again.
    Thanks Marcel and Terra to!

    Those shots were taken at a Ferrari Club of America, Michigan Chapter meeting.
    At the time it was a local Michigan, but I don’t have the owner’s name.
    It would have been between 1976 - 1979.
    Maybe Marcel knows the car?

    Thanks for posting all the great pictures.

    09057 is one from the series of 12 very special lightweight Long Nose Competizione 275 GTBs from 1966. In your pictures the car was owned by Roger Meiners. Today the car is light metallic blue in colour and raced often by its owner Vincent Gaye.

    9057 also went through my hands. Allen Bishop swears that he saw the owner about to put gas in the oil reservoir on the RF fender, screeched to a halt, and stopped the owner just in time. He gave me the guy's name, I bought it (with almost no knowledge of this small series of comp cars) at the ideal time in 1975 or so, as Phoebe had just gone through the Bondurant school. She beat my time at the Virginia City hill climb; woohoo!
