"You can't give one without the other." My mother repeated these words every time my father would buy a new bicycle for me but neglect to do the same for my sister. Fair, after all, is fair. I mention this because after researching last week's Fantasy Garage superstar, the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe, not including the 250 GTO would be sacrilege. We can't have one without the other. After all, the reason the Daytona is so breathtakingly fantastic is because it had to compete with this Ferrari. Put another way, without the Ferrari 250 GTO, the Daytona Coupe wouldn't exist. Was Muhammad Ali any less of a fighter because he lost one to Ken Norton? [Ed Note: oops!] Of course not. And there is no doubt that when the 250 GTO debuted in 1962, it was the greatest car in the world.
