Thank you for the kind comments on the articles I wrote over 18 years ago based on my research from 18 to 28 years ago. Unfortunately I have not taken the time to publish some corrections to errors which have come to light over the intervening years, perhaps some day...
The car left on a trailer today for the sunny south.
Regarding your experience in the 750 Monza, all of the 1955 750 Monzas and 500 Mondial Series 2 cars are identical except for the motor displacement. I am 6 feet 1 inch tall and the cockpit is not exactly roomy for me. However as you may have read, as well as the races, I did drive the car nearly 3000 miles from California to New York back in the sixties.
As to your invitation to drive the beautiful Swiss Alps this spring, I regret that it will not be possible as it is so expensive to move a car to Europe and back.
For more web reading this is a bit more complicated. First go to : http://www.tomyang.net/cars/ferrari.html
then on the lower left section under Monthly Ferrari Restorations select the month of August 2008, then go to the upper left section entitled The Restoration Diary and select the entry for 8/17/08.
You may repeat this for the month of May 2008 and the date of 5/2/08.
Since Pebble Beach there are now over two dozen hits if you google "500 Mondial" and "Robert Phillips". Looks like my fifteen minutes of fame.
