The car on the left is by shape
a D-type Jaguar. No telling by simple viewing whether it is powered
by the immortal Jag Six or by some Detroit iron. The car in front
is a long-wheelbase Ferrari 250GT TdF in Scaglietti raiment,
driven by Bill Sturgis. Photo by my brother Don.
Browsing a year 2000 Ferrari Club of UK report of some Ferrari
activity at Monterey, I came across this:
"A second LWB 250 TdF appeared later in the morning. This was also a 1958
car, which now belongs to Dr. Ron Bosuttil, having previously been part of the
Matsuda collection in Japan. S/N 0967 GT was first sold direct to the U.S.A. and
may have been raced by Richie Ginther in some California events of that period.
Could be, eh? Turns out the
answer to that one is a resounding "NO!" An eminent researcher
of such claims determined there is absolutely no evidence Ginther
ever drove that car. Punto final.
