The Magazine for Ferrari EnthusiastsCover The 1972 Ferrari 312 P, s/n 0886
Cavallino is the journal of Ferrari history, covering Ferraris old and new for over 40 years. It's the most reliable, most trusted source of everything Ferrari. Ever since the first issue in 1978 Cavallino presents extensive stories and detailed information from knowledgeable experts and enthusiasts who share the passion for Ferrari. All Ferraris are unique, and each one has its own chassis serial number. This is how the Ferrari world keeps track of all the great cars. Cavallino is the only publication that prints the serial number for every Ferrari mentioned in our stories, articles, and race results.
Fiat Motors of North america invited me to their national press conference at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for the introduction of their 1.5-litre Strada.
Speaking at the elaborately orchestrated song and dance unveiling was Fiat's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Giovanni Agnelli. Also in attendance was Luca Montezemolo, once Direttore Sportive at Ferrari.

The ground shakes, the car shakes, and you shake. A booming exhaust not pounds on your ears. The Ferrari 121 LM is not a subtle car. It looks so aggressive that there is no mistaking its purpose.
Ferrari Scale Models
I began collecting model cars seriously in 1966, after working on an article on the subject for Road & Track magazine, although I had built many kits and had scratch built a number of other cars before that. In the late 1960s there were only about eight or ten new diecast models appearing each month, costing around $3 to #4 each, and it was well within my resources to collect every racing, sports, GT, classic, and show car model that came out.
1979 Daytona 24 hr
The First Annual Daytona 24 hour Vintage Car Race
For those of you who don't believe that the breed improves with age, all you have to do is look at the results of the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona over the last few years.
Even though the Daytona has been out of production since 1974, it has continually improved its performance, and this is against the factory efforts from Porsche and BMW.
Ferrari 312 P 1971-1973
Ever since the introduction of the 308 GT4 at the Paris Salon in October 1973, I have been intrigued with the thought of a 312 GT or more properly, a 312 BB. Economics aside, a 3-liter 12-cylinder mid-engined Ferrari appears to be a logical evolutionary step. At any rate, that is not the purpose of this story.
Ferrari 312 P
A splendid little Car
I actually started racing in 1959 using a Morris 1000 Woodie, a most troubled car, which I used for business during the week and then took it racing on the weekends. In 1960 I did something similar with a Mini Minor and in 1961 with an XK120 Jaguar and 1962 with a Morgan +4. All these cars were prepared by me at night, raced on the weekends, and used for business during the day.
Ferrari 312 P Test
Whereby A Frustrated Test Driver Finally Gets Behind The Wheel
Constant readers of Cavallino (how's that for giving a magazine that's only published four issues some historical significance) should vividly remember Chuck Queener's driving impressions (and my non-driving depression) and my test of the ex-Clay Regazzoni Ferrari 312 T formula one in the January/February issues.
Superamerica & Superfast - part I
A Look at a Series of Super Ferraris
Kurt H. Miska
Dean Batchelor Collection
It is generally acknowledged that all Ferrari are top-of-the-line cars, certainly when compared to the much more mundane, mass-produced products of Detroit, Turin of Stuttgart. Nevertheless, even though Ferraris already are very super indeed, The Master from Maranello always had, and hopefully always will, at least one model, or series of models that rank above his regular "production" cars. The Superamerica / Superfast series was just that.
Argentine Grand Prix
Lotus 79 Clone Surprises Everyone
You could be cruel and begin with the scene in the Buenos Aires Sheraton - the one where Jody Scheckter is on his way down from the fist-floor coffee shop, and James Hunt is on his way up. They stop to talk on the stairs, the new Ferrari man and his opposite number at Wolf, and a crowd gathers around them. Before you can say "Forghieri" there are swarms of girls - prime, Argentine girls - clammoring for autographs, standing besotted, and generally making themselves available
Brasilian Grand Prix
Not Again ?
It became routine after awhile, but only after awhile. Seven-thirty a.m. in the Sao Paulo Hilton's coffee shop, fresh pineapple and boiled eggs for breakfast and then off to the Fiat 147, a briefcase and helmet bag in hand. Gilles and Joanne Villeneuve always liked to be away before the traffic thickened. They do not like sitting in traffic jams.

Ferrari & Homologation
Joel E. Finn
Stan Nowak's article in the September/October issue of Cavallino on the First 100 Cars served as a memory trigger that caused me to ferret out an item that very few Ferraristi have ever seen before. This is a brochure produced by Ferrari on the 166 MM as part of the process of securing homologation for the model from the Commission Sportive Internationale (S.C.I.)
