That interior shot above is from the 430 Scuderia. I'm digging that interior. It's pimped out, but I'm digging it.

I was searching YouTube for some good clips of the Scuderia. Here's one from Road & Track:


Check out the Disco2 at Fiorano. I wonder if that's a Ferrari-owned vehicle or something else.

And there's some Rigoletto and La Traviata love in this one:

You won't be disappointed.

I just watched it on YouTube:















It turns out I had seen the show before. I just didn't recognize the title when you told me about it. Re-watching it just now, my reaction was kind of lukewarm. This is the same reaction I had when I watched it when it was broadcast.

I certainly enjoyed the show, but I was drooling only in parts of it like the 250 Testa Rossa, 250TR 60, 250 GTO, 250 SWB, 275 GTB, etc. The later race cars don't do it for me.

Alain de Cadenet wears a Moon Watch. That's definitely something I hadn't noticed before. Nice.

This thread brings back memories. My brother owned this for about three years. I didn't drive it (the damn sterring wheel was on the wrong side) but he took me out and we hit 160 at Rockingham (UK), and all in air-conditioned comfort.

It is Marlboro's way of getting around banning of cigarette advertising.

I'm sure the Snap-On is just fine for the privateers you linked to, but Scuderia Ferrari has made a different choice.

I believe the Ferrari factory still uses USAG tools (owned by SK/Facom) but Jack is referring to the Ferrari factory F1 team which now uses Beta Utensili (since 2004 I think?).
