    I'm curious about his Cigarette TG w/ the Arnesons ...

    Sounds like he doesn't really give a **** and does what he wants - I think that's awesome.

    God? LOL... not sure about that. If the bible had a section of bull crap in it perhaps.

    But yes... he now makes his own instead of modifying what others have on offer. Which is GREAT

    when i bought my bbi, i noticed it was homologated by amerispec, so i called Dick Fritz to ask him about it. he laughed and said that the original owner was Aronow.
    then he sent me all the original paperwork, which is nice to have.

    Damn, forgot all about Amerispec. Are they still around? Somehow I doubt it.

    Once upon a time, I tried to talk Gerald Rouse into opening a bottle of scotch and turning on the tape recorder. Never happened, mostly my fault. Someone should do this with Dick Fritz and a few others while there is still time.

    Modulo.

    We've seen it can drive and turn on the open lawn and around a couple of side roads but can it negotiate tight turns and corners encountered out on the road in everyday driving situations?

    Out on the road when driven any distance what will boil over and overheat first, the engine or the driver/passenger?

    He has some really good engineers at his shop. His stuff is hand built, well tested and top notch. Also like the hood on the 4/5c better than the Pista serving the same purpose. The rest is water under the bridge and he won't be back IMO.

    He can't control the "narrative" on FerrariChat like he can on FaceBook.

    I don't understand your post. What has the P4/5c hood got to do with a Pista? Glickenhaus did not build the hood on P4/5c. It was all done by LM Gianetti IIRC. Glickenhaus has not not built any cars at all yet. The (2 or 3?) SCG 003 cars were built by MAT, Manifatura Automibili Torino headed by Paolo Garella formerly of Pininfarina.

    Good questions. The 4/5c hood does exactly the same function as the Pista hood except it takes the cowl up high so you don't have that large visible dive plane that many were not so keen on when the Pista came out. I think the 4/5c hood is a much classier solution to the same function - very PF to my eyes. I thought of it when the very first Pista picture was leaked. As far as build quality, I am referring to the design team he is funding. His various videos show his passion for racing and the design of the team's first few SCG cars and they are awesome. I don't expect him to be vacuum curing and grinding carbon fiber with his own hands. Its his projects so I give him the credit as well. I don't care for the production side with I believe a V6 but the others -especially the two V12s were amazing to me and to others on this board. Hope that helps.

    That is because P4/5 is a Pininfarina design.

    Which 2 V12s would they be then?

    Misspoke. One V12 - the PF designed P4/5. Thought there was a P5 as well but perhaps maybe from some other media. I did not find the story here terribly engaging (way too long and picky) and certainly wouldn't spend years debating a car I do not own! Don't you like the 4/5c hood better than the ski lift Pista hood? To me it reveals a distinction in the design approaches of PF versus in-house for the same function. Interesting.

    I'll just say that Modulo to my eyes seems to have irrational design solutions with respect to engine/water cooling, cockpit heat dissipation and steering/turning circle. Yes, I know Glickenhaus has said the engine cooling is great and that the steering issues are myth, BUT, how far and at what speed/engine load has it been driven to ascertain that? It was only recently driven for the first time ever, and that was just around the block. Looks like there is a cooling issue as they've added fans to the radiators, but up to what speed can the car be driven before the (sail) panels get ripped off the bodywork when they're in their extremely unaerodynamic open position?

    Never heard of Glickenhaus, but it’s content like this that draw me to this site.

    Of course as the owner of Modulo it is for Glickenhaus to do with as he pleases, but it is not an authentic Ferrari as a functional car when converted by him as such from the concept/show car it was. The only people who were able to do it correctly and make it authentic are Pininfarina or Ferrari themselves. It now has a degree of authenticity removed from it. Why didn't he just commission Ferrari or PF to do the conversion? He may have done so and they refused, but if that was the case it should have been left as it was to keep it authentic, and it now is not.

    Because he can't control the narrative and he got shut down on 0846. Why not go somewhere else where everyone fawns all over you? Its just easier. He made quite a "fool" of himself on the 0846 debate. Im not calling him a FOOL. Im saying he ended up looking like one with that.

    I am sure he doesn't feel appreciated so he left. No biggie.

    .

    I completely agree with your point on 0846. Why the need to question the turning circle on Modulo? He took something that was little more than a decoration and turned it into a running vehicle. Who cares if it can run at freeway speeds with out overheating or can do U turns in a reasonable space? Why does he need to be second guessed at every turn for everything he does? See my comment earlier in this thread about it bleeding into other threads from the 0846 disaster. He couldn’t post “Have a nice day” without someone jumping his ass.

    He took an exotic period fantasy machine(from a period when car fantasy existed unlike today) and made it a running reality, while keeping everythign true to the designers intent, without ruining any period pieces. He did the same with his dino.

    Compare that to the lame over restored chromed out over restorations on concors fields, presented by people who really have no love or feel for the machine save its value and potential prize,
