I ran our Ferrari 250 GTO once at a Laguna Seca vintage race. Fun..but really stupid at the same time.

It wasn't that valuable when you did that, George!

Jim MacNeil has his wife Sandy race his 250 GTO a few times a year, and he bought his out of the classified ads in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1968, I won't say for how much... Tom Price runs his, too. They're still out there.

It's like Jim and Tony and a couple of the people that run these cars say, "you can't do but so much damage to these things..."

Years ago I ran in a DE @ LeCircuit and had the pleasure of seeing/hearing one L Stroll (the father) out on track with us in his GTO...will never forget it. I'll always recall how skinny the tires were
