    There's photo in some book showing young Phil Hill test fitting a seat (for a Ferrari race car ?).
    IIRC, the seat is on some shop floor, him sitting in it and another gentleman standing next to him.
    I thought it was in M. Dregni's "Inside Ferrari", but after leafing through it few times now, couldn't find it.
    Suggestions of which book ?

    ... or was the picture perhaps in some magazine (Cavallino ?) article ?

    I seem to recall a similar scene in Grand Prix. Maybe it was Tim Randolph being fitted for a seat in his Manetta.;)

    Thank you, that's the picture.
    While I don't have THAT book I know it's in some other publication (book or magazine) in my library, as I've seen it more than few times.

    I just wanted to show it to my wife this am after she got done test fitting one of my custom fabricated seats I'm reshaping & getting reupholstered for our 3K+ mile vintage road trip vacation next summer.
