Ferrari Historian Keith Bluemel talks about some of the classic Ferrari's

Ferrari Historian Keith Bluemel talks about some of the classic Ferrari's at the Ferrari Owners Club Concours meet.

The 275 GTB Man

For some, buying a classic car may be merely adding a car to their collection while for others it is a dream purchase. You don’t buy a classic car as a commuter, just to get you out of the house and to your place of work, rather you buy what made you dream during your youth.

The lucky owner who we present now perspires and bleeds the passion of automotive. His heart is consumed with the prancing horse, Ferrari. “When you love you don’t count the cost” says the Syldave proverb. The quotation was not randomly chosen – our man acquired 3 Ferraris during the last 40 years: 3 Ferrari 275 GTB! Each of these cars has a long story and two of the three Ferrari 275 GTB are very special models.

Ferrari 275 GTB 6C Monaco

At the beginning of my exchange with the owner, I did not think of writing an article around his cars as I wanted to concentrate only on the pictures. Then, after our discussions, I realized that he had many interesting things to say. Classico is not just about the cars but about the people behind the cars.

1968 Ferrari 365 “Daytona” GTB/4

Don Johnson had great taste, at least in cars. His black Daytona upstaged even the white Testarossa on any given night.

This one-off Ferrari is for sale. The price? $9,000,000

Gorgeous, V12-engined 'Thomassima II' from 1967 is up for sale on, um, ...eBay

That's £5.8m, for a car or story you've probably never heard about. The long of it, you can read here, but the short of it is this: it was born in the 1960s, designed by a fascinating chap called Tom Meade.

Ferrari 250 GT PF Coupe Was Hidden In Hollywood Apartment

The Lucky Owner of this rare Ferrari 250 GT PF Coupe explains: I came across this car through a client of mine. I had heard rumors that there was a vehicle in an apartment building that he owned, but I never saw it. He was very closed lipped about it. He never wanted to say much until recently. Once he came to retirement age, he started selling things in preparation of moving out of state.

I kind of kept badgering him about it, and eventually, he let me see the car. I didn’t believe it when I saw it. It was literally inside a one-bedroom unit of an apartment building in Hollywood.

Handmade Ferrari 250 GTO: Man Builds Perfect Replicas Of Classic Cars

A CAR enthusiast has spent five painstaking years recreating one of the world’s most desirable Ferraris. Rod Tempero hand crafted the replica Ferrari 250 GTO in a chicken shed in New Zealand – but the incredible car which has a 4.4 litre, V12 engine could be worth well over one million dollars. Rod and his team specialise in handcrafting cars that otherwise would be unobtainable for enthusiasts around the world. There were only 39 of the original vehicles ever produced by Ferrari and one recently sold for more than $38m at auction.

The Ferrari 250 series II California Spyder Tipo 168 3.0L V12

The Ferrari 250 was the ultimate 1960s grand touring car and it was introduced to the world before that decade had even begun. More than half a century later its genetic code is still identifiable in today’s top sports coupes, but for this video we’ve ditched the roof for a blast around Britain’s B-roads in a rare open-headlight version of the series II California Spyder.
