The stunning and iconic Ferrari 365 GTB/4. The regular non-N.A.R.T. variety.
Iconic for a reason… it was g o o d ! Affectionately known as “Daytona.”
The red #1 car above originates from here in my hometown, just up the road at the home of the North American Racing Team of Luigi Chinetti. God, did I love going over there.
The spectacular 330 P4 is so delicious that if you have one of these rarified Ferraris back home, you can spray paint your licence plate on instead of drilling. Bellissima!

It is a sad thing that this fantastic machine never got past the handful that got built. Look at that thing… it’s gorgeous. Long the company that “didn’t get it” … when they finally did, they blew them all away with this.
And then, they collapsed in upon themselves like collapsing things do.

The exquisite 1968 Fiat Dino Coupé
Dinos are lovely, smooth things… timeless beauty, all of them.
I am a devoted fan of the Mk I… because, well, because it was the most fun car I ever had. Lightweight with a tenacious little engine and the real source, the most perfect ratios ever combined. It simply owned the city streets as well as the marvelous minitwisty bits here in the vicinity of the Hauptquartier.
This modern one is lookin’ mighty fine, I’d say.
Lola T70 Coupe
These T70s are just gorgeous, in my humble opinion. One time while I was in high school there was a British Racing Green T70 Mk III coupe with a New York license plate on it over at Chinetti’s.
Yes, we wuz excited. =]
So I saw this ad…

I presume that it features 850 ponies… that is a nice number.
Being a Stangman, I am smiling and I think Carroll is, too, from on high.
Hey, now, here’s something I bet you never expected…
Hey, here’s a pic of an Acura DPi versus a Cadillac DPi at Daytona.

A nin was lucky enough to see the original machine that had a base plate of prefabulated aluminite, surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two main spurving bearings were in a direct line with the pentametric fan? The latter consisted simply of six hydrocoptic marzlevanes, so fitted to the ambifacient lunar waneshaft that side fumbling was effectively prevented. The main winding was of the normal lotus-o-delta type placed in panendermic semi-bovoid slots in the stator, every seventh conductor being connected by a nonreversible tremie pipe to the differential girdlespring on the “up” end of the grammeters.
