No doubt, the late August early gathering of the cognoscenti on the luscious Monterey Peninsula is automotive overkill at its pinnacle! God knows, it shouldn't be missed. Save on year, this is my tenth in a row! As usual, on leaving, make reservations for the following year. If you want to stay in the immediate area, you cannot book too far in advance.

17 Feature A Tale of Two Ferraris, 0108 E and 0166 ED
Doing what man is supposed to do - driving Feraris

Alan Boe

The story of most Ferraris is usually more than just a story about the car itself - inevitably, people are involved as well. Maybe a car owner, a racing driver, or a celebrity, and that certainly is the case with the two magnificent old Ferraris featured on these pages.
The berlinetta is a Carrozzeria Touring bodied 212 Export and the spyder is the only Touring bodied bracket ever built with a 2.7 liter Ferrari V-12 engine, and the last barchetta built on the short 88 inch wheelbase chassis.
22 Feature "Nivola"
A tribute to a legendary driver

Pietro Castiglioni

Collection Franco Zagari


Of the many great race car drivers that ever lived, Tazio Nuvolari, or "Nivola" as his fans nicknamed him, was the one that gave it all in order to win. Of him Enzo Ferrari said, "Tazio Nuvolari did not only have a unique style, but he also possessed an inimitable sublime way of life."
24 Feature Ferrari 250 GTO, s/n 3589 GT, saved and restored
The "GTO in a field" brought back from certain death

Marcel Massini

We have not highlighted a 250 GTO in Cavallino for a long, long time, partly because we've covered the type over several issues already, and with only thirty nine cars, there's not much more you can say without becoming redundant after awhile.
This particular GTO, a 1962 Series I model, s/n 3589 GT, has a tale to tell, however, and so it gives us a good opportunity to review the GTO again, from an oblique point of view.
30 Feature The Mystery 410, is it 1335 SA or 1387 SA
An example of the Benefits of the Study of Ferrari Trivia

Sue Ridgley

Dyke Ridgley


Sometimes exploration of fact leads only to more mystery. Such was the case in 1981 after my husband and I purchased s/n 1335 SA, a Series III 410 Superamerica. Research on this car, and the eleven other Series III cars, was begun at the time to ascertain the history of s/n 1335, but these efforts only led to more questions and only just a few answers.
32 Notizie Giants reappear
Ferrari 330 P3, s/n 0844 and Ferrari 330 P4, s/n 0858

Marcel Massini

David McKay, Mark Burrell


Two unique Ferraris came to light recently, and we thought you'd like to see more of them. One is a Factory team 330 P3, s/n 0844, and the other is a Factory team 330 P4, s/n 0858, both later converted to Can-Am spyder specification. They have been owned by the same man, old time Ferrari collector Walter Medlin, for about twenty years now, and while everyone knew he had the cars, almost no one ever saw them.
34 Notizie The 1990 Meadow Brook Concours d'Elegance

Jerry McDermott

Paul Bartoletti, Jerry McDermott


No matter what marques are honoured at this yearly event, the cars of Maranello are always popular. For the 1990 concours, the cars chosen for particular significance were the Rolls-Royce and Jaguar, yet three production and two racing Ferraris were invited for everyone to admire.

Ferraris carrying the Flag

Bryn Williams, Autosprint


Much more than racing takes place at Ferrari and in the world of Formula One, and much of it is much ado about nothing, but it's necessary to follow as it shows how the team evolves, and little things along the way portend larger changes to come.

At the 1990 Oldtimer Grand Prix and the meeting of the Ferrari Club Deutschland this year, fourteen Ferraris took part at the races. The oldest one was Jeremy Agace's 250 MM Spyder Vignale from 1953, s/n 0390 MM, the last 250 MM which was ever made.
The youngest one was Peter Heuberger's 512 M, s/n 1040, from 1970.
