    I met Mel at Motor Sports ranch outside of Ft.Worth when I was 14, we stayed in touch
    until he went to jail & he was a huge influence on my love for Ferraris.

    Does anyone have any information on his whereabouts? I've been trying to reach him
    for a while to say hello, he taught me so much about Ferrari's & to this day
    I've never seen a collection like his. I'll share the story and photos when I get them
    scanned!

    Any info or stories to share would be greatly appreciated!

    I believe he is on this site as Mel Spillman. I was friends with him for years. Despite the elephant in the room we had great times centered around racing and Ferrari’s
