It is our sad duty to record a simple fact, a fact with which you are more than aware, and that is that our beloved leader has left the field. On August 14, he died at his home peacefully, and in the company of his family, and even though his death was long expected, we must admit to a moment of somber and heartfelt loss. A great man is gone and an era has truly ended.

19 Ferrari 328 Reprise - an appreciation of a long running success
Alive and Well and not going "Gentle into that Good Night"

We have had occasion to driver several Ferrari 328s over the last year or so, over various bits of terrain, and at all kinds of hours, and we find them to be, invariably, a delight. They won't scare you out of your Gucci loafers as the Ferrari 288 GTO can, and they don't provide the lusty feel and leonine roar of the Testarossa, but if your needs and desires are for a basic, no nonsense, reliable sports car that can still provide a thrill, than the 328 is a natural choice.

Enzo Ferrari takes his leave and we are all the sadder for it

Enzo Ferrari's passing leaves us all sad, to be sure, but it also leaves us mediating on what life will be like without him - the life of Ferrari SpA itself, the firm he himself founded and built; the life of the Ferrari racing team, also founded by him and personally run by him until a very few months ago; the life of his older cars, now on their own out in the world and nearly all of them considered automotive art, entrusted to different hands, but hopefully, imbued with his spirit.

Could you give us an idea of the plans at Ferrari for the coming years, perhaps the general direction that you see the Factory taking in the next thirty months?

33 The Racing Ferrari 365 BBs
The True and Final Story of the three late, great Ferrari 365 BB Racing Boxers

Succesful race cars are rarely revolutionary, more often evolutionary. A racing team chooses a car with potential, and through continuous racing experience, refines and develops that car into a front runner.
The potential of the Ferrari 365 Boxers was clearly shown by the 1975 Le Mans entry of the NART team's BB No. 18095. With almost no modification except for wheels and tires, this virtually "box stock" Boxer ran qualifying times equal to or better than some of the Factory prepared and very well "sorted" Competition Daytonas.

As can be expected, the very name of Continental Motors immediately and correctly evokes images of an upscale purveyor of fine, quality made, and exclusive foreign cars, as opposed to the more pedestrian American iron, and in the case of John Weinberger's Continental Motors in Hinsdale, Illinois, the name fits to the proverbial "T", the only qualifier being that the name doesn't quite convey the wide ranging scope of the operation.
42 Notizie Summer PLeasures
4th Annual Reading Ferrari Concours d'Elegance

Pietro Castiglioni


Braving some of the hottest weather of the summer season, a surprisinly good number of Ferrari faithful brought their Ferraris to the Fourth Annual Reading Concours d'Elegance in July. If nothing else, it showed that Ferrari owners love to display their cars, even under harsh conditions, and it clearly demonstrates that Ferraris can be run trouble free, even in 95 degree weather.

This is the John Barnard designed Ferrari F1-89 in prototipo form. Not much eat technical information has been released, other than the attached spec sheet, so we cannot tell you for sure what benefit all the changes will have, but you can be sure Ferrari is breaking new ground.

Formula 1
This year will go down in history as one of the most important and dramatic for the Ferrari team, as events week to week change both the direction and the character of the Scuderia Ferrari.
Many of the abrupt transformations are covered last issue, but here we will try to place them in the context of the individual races.
52 Corse The Ferrari 308 continuous to Race ... a Win is in Sight

Paul Bartoletti


I want to share with you one of our finest moments with the Mosler Racing 308. It's not a win, but it's very close and was very exciting.
After our last race at Grattan, Michigan, where we came from last to closing on the second place car with two laps to go and lost yet another gearbox, Warren and I decided we needed the Ferrari rally gearbox.
