In short: 70 years ago, 'Il Commendatore', decided to start his own car company, Ferrari. After being a racedriver with Alfa Romeo for a while, Scuderia Ferrari was initially born in 1929. Still racing Alfa Romeo's, the dream to build his own cars became finally reality in 1947. The same year, the Ferrari 125S was born and the rest is history. His son gave his name to the V6 Dino and the brutal F40 was the last car he directed before his death in 1988.
Today, 70 years later Ferrari is celebrated all over the world and currently there is a very nice exhibition in Autoworld, Brussels to celebrate.
Antwerp Classic Salon, couldn't keep out of the fun and organised a 70 years Ferrari tribute on their main stand. Since we are rebuilding a 250GT Boano engine, we asked our (lovely) customer politely if we could borrow the car for the exhibition. Another of our generous customers was so kind to lend us his fabulous 225S Vignale in two-tone red and silver, both were presented in the main hall next to Peter Sellers 500 Superfast, Gerard Bergers F1, a 250GT California and many more. The visitors were treated to a fantastic selection and I'm sure were over the moon with the stunning prancing horses.
