Mark (and anyone else) should be disqualified for using a professional model in the submissions. It's Rule 42-A in the agreement.

The Winner of:

The Most Interesting Ferrari on Location
Contest

Goes to the Admiral in Santa Fe.

I am very appreciative of his entry and ALL the other entrants that participated. It was a great way to meet so many great people here and learn a bit about the passion we all share.

It was a very difficult task to judge so many great cars in beautiful areas of the world. I was torn between his car and some of the 308's in particular..., the LF and the 16M's.

I'll contact Robert and set up a time in the near future to shoot a day in the life with him and his car after I return from Maranello. What a great trip this has been for me on another pilgrimage to Italy.

I look forward to sharing the final photos with the group. Thank you all for your cameraderie.

Robb

To tell you all that I like about my car would require a magazine article (Cavallino #171 for example) (or the entire thread at: http://www.ferrarilife.com/forums/pr...eries-2-a.html) or the 29 trophies it has earned at 15 different shows including the top two Ferrari prizes at Pebble Beach, and six Best of Show trophies. However I will concentrate on two very specific items. The thing I most enjoy is getting the car on a race track and "exercising" it properly. That is an aural treat and physical challenge giving me great satisfaction. The second most enjoyment I get from the car is doing what Peter Mullins calls "Educational Outreach". Every car show I attend I love telling people about this car and the early racing history of the Ferrari four bangers. The fact that it was a blue Ferrari factory team entry and class winner at the First Gran Prix of Venezuela driven by Eugenio Castellotti and Harry Schell, that Porfirio Rubirosa took it to class wins at Nassau in 1955 and Sebring 1956, that it was the first of the model imported to the USA, that I raced it on both coasts in the 60s and drove it cross country from Oakland CA to Staten Island, NY, that I bought it as a wreck and learned auto mechanics on this car, all add up to some of the most enjoyable and memorable times of my life as custodian for the past 54.6 years.

Best regards,

Dear Robb,

I am very happy that you have picked my car as your first place finisher in the photo contest. It is nice to see that the old warhorse still stirs appreciation for what I consider to be one of Scaglietti’s very best designs, incidentally powered by the sports car version of the 1954 formula 1 Ferrari motor.

McKeel Hagerty has worried about the fact that too many of the attendees at car shows tend to be the older crowd. So he has instigated the “Operation Ignite Youth Judging Program” at several shows. The youngsters are accompanied by a seasoned concours judge, the owners present their cars, the kids ask questions and mark their score sheets and move on to the next car. They have little knowledge about provenance or big name brands, but they do know what strikes them as pleasing or exciting eye candy. At Hershey the owners of the magnificent 1920 horseless carriages with the high brass lantern taillights and trunk lids with china tea service covet that award as they figure the youngsters should really like the idea. The first photo below was the trophy awarded to my car at Hershey in 2012. Your award strikes me as being in the same vein.

Regarding the photo session, we cannot have that happen right away because my workbench two days ago looked like the second photo of the transaxle partially disassembled. I am fixing a reluctant 3rd gear selection issue which was intermittent but highly distracting on track at Road America, Elkhart Lake. Missing an upshift into third gear could have caught Doug unawares as he pushed me around the course.

Thank you again. I must admit that there were several other really beautiful cars in the competition, but of course we each think our car is the best.

Best regards,

No mention of a 458 and a couple of Maranello's. A man with no taste.

Congrats Admiral. At least now I've been in a competition with TLBC, didn't think that would happen.

another well-deserved triumph!

It was that accursed recalcitrant 3d gear issue that deprived both Judith and me of the promised ride at Elkhart. We count on taking it with you sometime soon!
