    I imagine the sensation driving a car like this one, hear the sound of the engine, hand flying
    Between the stearing wheel and the small ball for changing gear up and down.
    If you father was here enjoy the presence. I lost mine 2 years ago and life doesn t have the same taste.

    Thank you for pictures.

    A very special TdF. It and 0677 were used for the development of the outside plug 250 TR motor. Both TdFs were entered in races by the factory (extremely rare for GT cars). This one ran the TdF in damaged condition and still finished second to Gendebien.

    Long time family ownership in St. Louis.

    What a pleasure to be down here in Palm Beach in great weather, surrounded by fun car people. Huge bonus - TdF driving in January!
    Just stopped on this beautiful little road to take a couple of pictures.

    In 100 years time when everyone uses little automated transport pods to move from A to B, your glorious pic will be used in schools to explain why driving a Ferrari was so magical :)

    Not a picture this time, in the 90's I visited some events at Spa-Francorchamps and the Nurburgring. This video contains 4 Tour de France's in 1 race. Ecxuses for the poor quality.

    Oh, there are a few more Ferrari's...

    I don't remember whether or not I've posted these pix of 0677GT (ex-Gendebien) as I bought it and after my clean-up. I couldn't immediately locate proper tail-lights, so modified the fenders to accept VW K-G units. Originality just wasn't such a big deal back in the day. I was only dimly, if at all, aware of the great history of this car. Of course the yellow lights are not OK, but they were what I had lying around. Different times, indeed.
