Standards are going all to hell, mon Amiral.

Good luck with the auction and godspeed to the little blue race car! May the new guardian be as faithful as its former.

Dear Dinosaur followers,

On 24 June, 1960 when I handed over two checks totaling $2,225.00 for a pile of damaged goods I had no idea what the next 58 years would bring. So today looking back over those 58 years I am amazed at what has transpired. I have done more things with this car than I had ever imagined and so now it is time to move on and transfer the custodianship role to the next person. I only hope they derive as much pleasure from telling people and driving this machine as I have. This short clip really sums it up nicely.

Hard for me to look at those pictures.
Like looking at a tiger caged in a zoo
That car should be roaming free in Santa Fe.
Or better yet, ANNAPOLIS. ;-)

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Mon Amiral,

#22 was the race number on Luigi Chinetti Sr.'s 1949 24 Heures du Mans-winning 166MM barchetta. Also was the race number of LT Seth Rosner's (very occasional) class-winning Triumph TR3 just about the time you found and saved the little blue race car.

Good luck to you, HelenAnn and 0556(0446) the little blue car!

Respectfully,

Seth

Dear Dinosaur followers,

Last evening I came across a website I had never seen before. It has a nice complimentary statement by Marcel Massini about my car. Further it has 59 photographs of my car, many of which I had never seen before. Have fun looking at:
The Admiralís 1955 Ferrari 500 Mondial Series II Revealed for the 15th Annual Pebble Beach Auctions Presented by Gooding & Company: Anamera
