    Amazing article and pictures- thanks & love pacpaldoc's pictures!

    I really like that testarossa with the blue and white nose for some reason- I love the look! Does the car exist, and if so did the owners keep the nose like that? (probably not is my guess- it was probably repainted to "all original red" instead of race livery...)

    If I am understanding the ID given above that particular car was lost to a fire and it's remains tossed away.....

    I think that's right.....

    WOW!! Very interesting to me. I loved Denise's writing. I barely knew until I started reading AutoWeek just how well she could paint a picture for me with words. R.I.P. Phil knew quality if he owned a Pierce Arrow. Who needs a Duesy.

    The Fuller Brush magazine was put together by Ken Hutchison one of the original founders of the FCA. His ad agency, Gray North in Chicago did some other ads for other companies with Ferraris.

    Jim: I did not know about the connection between Ken and the Fuller Brush magazine. Thanks for telling us. I remember the first time I heard a Lampredi engine running was at his house with his 375MM Berlinetta. I was REALLY impressed!!
