A.F. Loyers, Stan Nowak

My own involvement with 002C and 004C began on June 11, 1949 when I first saw Briggs Cunningham's cycle-fendered Spyder Corsa, chassis and engine No. 016I. Although it did not finish that day it lead most of the way and was stopped by a cut oil line.
I had no way of knowing it was the first Ferrari to arrive in the U.S.

17 Feature The Berlinetta Boxer
A History and Appreciation

Mark Tippetts, David Edgerton, Pininfarina, Ferrari

Ever since it was introduced on the Pininfarina stand at the Turin Salon in 1971 as a design study and possible prototype, and later in 1973 at the Paris Salon as a pre-production model, the Ferrari Berlinetta boxer has been classed, without reservation, as one of the great "supercars" of the motoring world.

36 Feature The Boxer in America
The Story of How the Boxer Came to These Shores And How the Grey Market Began
The story of the Boxer in America is really a story of Yankee ingenuity over the obstinacy of an unenlightened government, and from the beginning, the stage was set with a 'dramatis personae' of truly heroic proportions. Center stage was a new, radical vehicle that truly appealed deep down to the very heart and soul of any honest man.
39 Notizie Quarter Classics


A fair proportion of the Ferrari enthusiasts are Ferrari model enthusiasts, and by that we mean the models you can place on the shelf in your home, not on the floor of your garage. Some of these are little more than trinkets, most are fair reproductions of the many Ferrari types, and a very few come up to the actual standards of design, detail and construction found in the full-scale, real-life examples.

The Ferrari club held its annual meeting at the end of June in Atlanta, and some very interesting vintage and racing Ferraris were on display.

46 Corse Where have we gone wrong?


Ferrari seems to be entering one of those recurring periods in racing where everything should be going great, but everything turns out wrong.
Not seriously wrong, but wrong enough to keep them from winning races.
On the surface the season looks disastrous, but in retrospect, it might well be looked upon as a season of retrenchment and recommitment.
