A French Weekend With My Husband's Daytona Mistress

A French Weekend With My Husband's Daytona Mistress

By Petrolicious Productions / 30 Oct 2014 / 7 Comments Read More

I have just returned from a quick weekend in France with my husband and his mistress. I know what you must be thinking, but I do rather like her. Although she’s loud (and I hate her perfume), she’s undoubtedly beautiful (stunning really) and being with her inevitably makes us the centre of attention–whether we want it or not...

Giovanni Michelotti was a Prolific, Masterful Designer

He is credited with more that 1,200 designs–cars, and even buses and trucks–where at least one model was built. The quality, quantity, and breadth of his work are just some of the reasons why he was inducted into the European Automotive Hall of Fame in 2009. And somehow, he also found spare time to produce a few cars under its own name...

This Ferrari 512 M Changed the Racing World Forever

When the Sunoco Ferrari 512 M first appeared at Daytona in 1971 it was a revelation. Manned by a dream team, the car combined Ferrari’s pedigree with Penske’s legendary attention to detail in everything from his crew’s uniforms to the polished wheels. Slated to run at Daytona, Sebring, Le Mans, and Watkins Glen, this 512 M was the odds-on favorite every time it rolled onto the starting grid.

This Is How Ferrari Celebrates 60 Years in North America

Yesterday, Ferrari North America held a birthday party for itself in Beverly Hills, California. And what a party it was! Virtually one of every significant Ferrari ever built was in attendance. Cars such as the 330 P4, 312PB, a couple of GTOs, Testa Rossas, this year’s Pebble Beach winner, FXXs, and even the first Ferrari in America, a 1948 Barchetta, made glittering Rodeo Drive shine a bit more brightly than usual.

To be honest, the question we posed on Monday was a bit challenging due to the abundance of possibilities, and was akin to picking a favorite color or, perhaps, child. After all, they're all great, right? But let's be honest, we all have a favorite don't we? Yes, yes, we love them all, but one is just a bit more impressive...

Dino is Gone but Not Forgotten

Dino is Gone but Not Forgotten

Dino was an odd brand, placed somewhere between Fiat and Ferrari. And because Mr. Enzo Ferrari did not want to use his nice black horse logo on cars with fewer than twelve cylinders, they created the “Dino” trademark (named after his son Alfredo, nicknamed Dino). Dino Ferrari was working on a 6-cylinder engine for Formula 2 in the 1950s, before his untimely death.

Long story short: this Giulia is no trailer queen, but a nice driver fitted with full roll cage, fast road suspension, bucket seats, and full racing harnesses. I am currently in the process of building a mildly fettled 2000 engine for it. There are also tales of rust, panel cutting and welding, painting, hunting down parts, and also of course the previously mentioned winter rally adventure...

Ever since I was a kid, I have loved cars. Thinking back, it seems completely natural. I have found pictures of me as a two-year old surrounded by my toy cars, sitting in front of the television, on which my dad was watching Formula One. And that is how it went, every Sunday, for years and years. I would also read his car magazines, go with him to events, and ride along in every classic he owned.

Revived in 1988, today’s Carrera Panamericana is still dangerous, fast, grueling, and addictive, as driver Conrad Stevenson can attest. Stevenson got his first taste of the race in a friend’s Studebaker in 2001. After a couple more years of participating in friends’ cars, Stevenson decided it was time to build a car of his own, in this case a 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale.
