Making up for lost time (more automotive art)
Ferrari - the name alone brings all sorts of images to mind... In a lot of
ways, some of the most beautiful cars on the road. And the older Ferrari's
can be more stunning than the current ones...
Here's one that was sitting in the pits over our last race weekend. It's a
1965 Ferrari 365 4 cam LWB (long wheelbase). Unfortunately, the owner
wasn't around and I wasn't about to open the hood to take shots of the
engine. I did speak to one of the Alfa Romeo guys pitted nearby who knew
the car and the owner - evidently he's had it for a while, and it gets driven
pretty regularly (notice that it's got regular plates - not collector plates).
The plaque on the dash is great- "Remember, you are not Niki Lauda"
