non-N.A.R.T. 365 GTB/4

The stunning and iconic Ferrari 365 GTB/4. The regular non-N.A.R.T. variety.

N.A.R.T. 365 GTB/4

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.

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.

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.

Sigh…

Here cuz quarterturnthrottle reblogged a post by schwarzie11.

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.
