    Enjoy those drives Mark, my drive in 0879 at Spa on the open roads including the old circuit for a Cavallino article in February rain in 1997 (IIRC) remains one of the purest proper classic Ferrari V12 driving experiences I ever had:)

    Another 50 miles today, really pushing it temperature-wise, I think the high was 38 degrees / 3 C but with the cardboard in, the engine still got up to temp and ran beautifully. Drove with a great bunch of guys to a country store called Hayfields in North Salem New York. Nice people that I liked even more once I saw the picture of Enzo on the wall. I have done 4,600 kilometers since the car was restored and was hoping to get to 5,000km before the winter but looks like I’m going to fall a little short. Since then I have driven the car in England, France, Switzerland, Italy and of course the US of A. It did go back to the factory a bunch of times, in 2015 to the classiche department and then of course in 2017 for the 70th anniversary, read about my journey on:

    ... if you missed it.

    It was good to see the young kids checking out the car, they are the collectors of tomorrow!

    Hello,


    250 LWB TDF#0909GT is currently with a new paint scheme, metallic gray with a red white blue tricolor strip.
    To my knowledge, the car has been delivered new in Switzerland and has had a long racing career in this country with Walter Lambert and Tommy Spychiger. I know pictures of this car in red with a white stripe, then completely red.
    Can someone tell me which period corresponds to this new livery? Or is it a personal choice of the owner, can it be a reminder of the GTO #4153GT, another car from his collection?

    Thanks Marcel.
    Thus no reference with history of the car.
