Ferrari Numbers vrs Pininfarina Numbers

I just read Tom's blog on Pininfarina numbers and think some clarification is in order. The Pininfarina numbers DO coordinate directly with the Ferrari numbers, but there is no logical order. At the register we have the link between the Ferrari Numbers and PF numbers, which was written by Hil Raab f...

Terry - If there is any issues with shipping to the UK, El Segundo is right down the street from me. I can pick some up and forward them to you very easily.

Re: 330 GTC Sunvisor tips

Tom, what are the serial numbers of the cars by tip color? Trying to see if there is a changeover by year or s/n number. Mine has black tips and is 10489. Thx, Tom I can be of no help what-so-ever when it comes to visor tips in GTCs. However, if you do try to find a crossover point, don't forget th...

If I recall correctly, Tom Y did it on this site a long time ago with Shimano bicycle cable and piano wire. No duct tape was involved...

FCA Meet in Ohio

Edwin Hofman just posted a very nice set of photo of the FCA Meet, including some of Tom and Sam. You can see them at https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0N5oUnugcrJ91. Is that Dennis Garrity's GTE on the lawn?

RIP Ted Rutlands & Wayne Obry

We lost two big friends of the Ferrari world this week. I have met both men many times over the years and have done business with Ted more than once. Their knowledge of our cars was deep and can not be replaced. These men contributed a lot to our hobby and will be missed. On a non-car note, we also ...

Yes, I made the template for the GTE and still have it, believe. If anybody needs it, let me know.

Door Kick Plates

Last week I went to Danchuk Manufacturing (http://www.Danchuk.com) in Santa Ana, CA to check on some material for a fellow GTE owner. Danchuck manufactures parts for 1955, 1956 & 1957 Chevy's. Many years ago, a group of us on Tom's site purchased the metal that was used on the tailfins of these ...

Re: Ferrari 250 GTE Stolen

Hi Marcus - I just received an email from a person who was looking at purchasing a GTE engine and he contacted me to make sure that it was not from your car (it was not). People are watching out for you! We have a big network and Vintage Ferrari's are in a small world. We will find it..

Re: Who is going to Cavallino?

Anybody else not made dinner plans? I haven't given this trip enough thought and now I gotta get on a plane tomorrow. Would love to meet up with you guys.

Need to go now and figure out what to pack for 40-80 degrees and sunny/cloudy/rainy/windy days. And, oh yeah, humidity...

Re: Who is going to Cavallino?

Well, I guess I will have to think of something else... I would like to talk to you about racing at Del Mar in January. I grew up in Del Mar and still have a place there, but do not know much about its racing history. Horses I know about, but not cars. It would be fun to learn about.

Ok Admiral, to give you time to prepare, you should know that I will be asking "Why isn't your car red?" And Tom, I spent a lot of time yesterday looking for the proper ticket forms because I thought the $200 ticket price must be for more than just admission. I guess Concorso is taking a l...
