    and I am trying to figure out who is driving the car and exactly what kind of car he is driving. The number on the car appears to be 1T. The car appears to be an older Testarossa model of some sort. I can try to scan the picture but it is in a frame. If someone could help me out that would be great.

    Thank you.

    Can you take a digital picture of the picture and post it? I'll bet the car and driver will be identified in a matter of minutes if we can see it.

    290MM 0616 tested and raced in Nurburgring 1956? Raced by MUss/Trintignant, seems to have been tested by Castellotti. Best wishes, Kare

    I can still take a pic of it if you want me to. I will either do it tonight or tomorrow. My wife found the framed picture at Cost Market. It was only $24.99. It is a black and white photo. She said there were 3 other pictures there too. I may go buy the other ones for my home office too.

    Firstly, I'm also stunned at the wealth of knowledge available at the turn of a phrase.

    Secondly, tfazio, my compliments to you on your fine choice of a bride.

    Thirdly, what are you waiting for? RUN to Cost Market and get the other pics!

    I need a strap of some sort that will help keep my jaw from falling to the floor. The level of knowledge here is simply tremendous.
