Snapshot, 1968: How not to cool down a Ferrari 250 LM
Shocking as it seems today, obsolete Ferrari racing cars weren’t exactly treated with care in the 1960s and 1970s, as recently confirmed to us by Alain de Cadenet. He told of his exploits in no fewer than six 250 GTOs that, at the time, were cheaper to replace than to maintain. Making a stopover in the Italian city of Aosta on his way back from Maranello, we imagine the value of the beautiful black Ferrari 250 LM was the last thing on sports car concessionaire Don Parker’s mind.
