21 Monterey and the Auction action
The recent auctions reinforce the market trends

The Ferrari market had a few predicted jumps during the Monterey weekend, as this was the "Ferrari" year at Monterey, and thousands of over-hormoned "Tifosi" were at the races, at the multiple concours events, and at the multiple auctions. While there was no lack of Ferraris on auction at the Monterey weekend, prices were, with a few exceptions, in the current market range.

22 The Official Ferrari 275 Tour
The 275s are given their due, with a great party in their honour in Italy

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the launch of the 275 GTB and GTS, Ferrari organized an official meeting for these cars and their owners (and this was its first official organized event since the 50 year celebration in 1997). Title the 275 Tour, it was held in Maranello and throughout Tuscany from the 15th to the 20th of June, and thanks to the superlative efforts of the Factory's own Joanne Marshal and Angelo Amadesi, it was a rousing success.

26 Greenwich Concours rewards with quality Ferrari field

The Wennerstroms, Bruce and Genia, have been in the car field for decades, and eight years ago they decided to organise an elegant Concours in an elegant park on the water in Greenwich, Connecticut. It was a success from the very first year, combining the best classic and vintage automobiles over a two day period.

28 Modena Cento Ore Classic 2004
Emilia Romagna Region of Italy, June 19-22, 2004

From June 19 to 22, 2004, the fifth edition of the Modena Cento Ore Classic took place in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy. Unquestionably, this is the most various and innovative speed and regularity event for historic cars, both from a sports and a geographic point of view.

30 The Baroque Boano
A Ferrari 250 GT Boano, s/n 0531 GT, sees daylight after 40 years - albeit briefly!

Many off pieces, and low production cars, have been an integral part of Ferrari history. Some became icons of their period, but the destiny of others was to be forgotten or lost. One of the latter is the 250 GT Boano, s/n 0531 GT, which has not been seen or heard of for decades. Wolfgang Seidel, the only person who certainly would have known about the Boano's whereabouts, had turned his back on the car business and later died in 1987.

37 Lusso
Slowly but surely becoming the classic Ferrari street car

Even though we have covered the 250 GT/L Lusso many times before in Cavallino, we must be forgiven for doing so again. In truth, we have something serious to say on the model, in the form of a very serious article on the details of one particular Lusso that has only 1,700 miles on its odometer. As such, it paints a perfect picture of what an early 1960s 250 GT is all about, and in useful detail.

40 The 1700 Mile 250 Ferrari Lusso
One of the most original 250 GT Ferraris known to exist

In preparing for the restoration of an old Ferrari, a wooden boat, a vintage airplane, a tractor or a motorcycle, the most important element is the search for originality. Good documentation of the original condition of the car will provide a road map for the restoration, like a good set of blueprints for a house, and will save countless hours of rework and frustrating errors, as the job progresses.

46 Ferrari at Monterey 2004
Beyond your wildest expectations - more great Ferraris than ever before, and all within reach

The 2004 edition of the Monterey Weekend was a veritable feast for Ferrari fans, as not only was Ferrari one of the featured marques at many of the major events, such as The Quail, Concorso Italiano, the Monterey Historics, and Pebble Beach, and many unusual Ferrari models were featured in all the major auctions, but the Ferrari Club of America Annual Meet dovetailed into the final part of the weekend, providing a further four days of Ferrari events and activity.
