    It has been a while ...



    Jump to 1:40 but there are some other interesting shots in this video too like the AC looking an awful lot like a Mistral ...

    But this is the last ride, 8 years ago, that I've seen. That's before the recent restoration of course.

    Restored by Polo Storico? Yikes! Hope they did a better job than that white countach with gold emblems and gold engine parts which looked horrible.

    When think about side impact issue and keeping it cool in the sun it's not terribly practical. Still very exotic though.

    That was just a partial restoration. They just did what they were asked to do.

    Really? So they didnt have anything to do with the gold tacky stuff? Wow, ok.. well thats good news. I think they should set some criteria for their projects before they agree to put their stamp on it because owners will emphasize "my car has gone through/re-done by PS" so one might assume a full project.. so the entire car reflects on them regardless of the work they did or did not do. You can only imagine our criticism/conversation, at our car guy luncheon, once that car emerged.

    Indeed, and other times besides, you'd think the writer would have looked into this more carefully, the inaccurate headline makes for a good storyline though

    Agreed, strictly a glorious concept car the basis of which would never work with current transportation authority mandates

    I think PS already learned that lesson, specifically with the Countach you refer to.

    But back on-topic with the Marzal, I think Monte Carlo is a fantastic venue to recreate some of this car's history.

    Marzal, Miura, Monaco F1 GP (1967), what's not to like?

    Not by chance! :) That's Jack in the front seat and Uno is in the back seat doing the filming. He has other photos from their visit to Bertone on one of his websites.

    I had the good fortune of meeting Jack at a 50th anniversary event in Billings Montana. He is a true gentleman and a real enthusiast.

    Yes. I think the event was called the Bulls of Yellowstone.

    There was a group of us Crazy Canuks that made the trip down. ( I was in the black Superleggera)

    We had an absolute blast. We were able to see some incredible cars meet some wonderful people, and drive some spectacular roads.

    Then we've met as I was there with my wife though we were driving a rental Subaru as we'd just completed seeing Glacier and Yellowstone parks.
    Poor Jack had a bad time of it though what with blowing his engine on the way there.

    But yes, it was a grand event!
