“Do not touch me or even look at me. I am too expensive for you.”
Thus sayeth the Ferrari 250 GTO that I saw Saturday morning at a car classic. Apparently this Ferrrari 250 GTO:
- was named the top sports car of all time,
- only a little over 30 were made in the ’60s,
- and one recently sold for $15MM cash money.
And, folks who own these cars actually drive them around the track and race ‘em w/ no insurance. Damn, it must be good to be rich.
There were a lot of cool cars at Infineon Raceway last weekend for the Classic Sports Racing Group. Saw a birdcage Maserati (above), a Shelby Cobra, a forumla one car driven by Andretti, and several cool Lotus cars — even got to ride in one around the track, that was freaking fun!
The classic race car hobby is a little pricey. It’s fun hanging around people with that kind of money though. It would be cool to take racing school. Skip Barber is supposed to be pretty good, a three day intensive course.
