A Sleeping Beauty of Ferraris — The New York Times
The 330 GTC is one of my all time favorite Ferraris. Just 100 were built with no roof. So what is this 330 GTS worth?
After being knocked out of commission in 1969 by an engine fire and then spending the next 44 years hibernating in Pennsylvania, a graceful 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS will come under the glare of spotlights on Jan. 18 when it is auctioned in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Detroit: The naked truth — Automotive News
The North American International Auto Show. Rolls off your tongue like a celery stalk stuffed with peanut butter. The Detroit Auto Show, what it used to be and should continue to be called, is the finest in the world for one reason: It has the best theater among the major shows.
