    I was talking to Martin at Cavallino this weekend, he told me my 512TR was beat up & I told him its patina :) Where do you guys sit ? My TR is no show queen, We love the track & she has the battle scracthes in her paint to show it. I think it just makes her look meaner. I may repaint her next year but I like the lived in look

    I like a car that looks used. No question. As long as the panels aren't smashed up with a lot of missing or non-functioning parts.

    During Cavallino at Moroso there were lots of lived in classics like a 61 Dino Prototype worth several $M that looked like it just finished the 24hr of LeMans & a TDF was on the concours field with fresh track dust on it :) There were several other veterans that looked lived in as well as the show queens.

    Jeff Ippoliti told me he had a 1 1/2 hr test for the Coppa Bella test.

    I think I'll sponsor a trophy for next year , The Coppa Smella :) Your car has to have track grunge & looked lived in to compete. Maybe for the trophy I'll throw in some new driving gloves :)
