I've been very hesitant to post this and have very much gone back and forth as to whether or not I should. I present this as a very unique bit of Ferrari history and just a need to not let the story vanish. This will a somewhat lengthy and picture-intense thread. Thank you in advance for your indulgence. So, after a very brief exchange with a moderator, here goes...... My linkage to Ferrari goes back to 1974 (at the age of 16). I had always been interested in cars and thought some designs were somewhat limited and tried my hand at some alternatives as well as some new design directions. I had a high school guidance counselor Mr. Kerr (former auto shop teacher and drag racer). I showed him my designs and he was positive. I was thinking about engineering/automotive design as a career choice and decided to send out letters to many car companies (Ford, GM, Toyota, Honda, Lotus, McLaren, Lamborghini, Porsche......), asking if they would be willing to look at my designs. Only one car company responded – Ferrari. Image Unavailable, Please Login I'll post the starting point of the relationship and the various progression points over the next little while. Thanks for looking. Gary.
