    Hey Bryan,

    It was great seeing you, your Mom and Dad and especially the little Blue car at Nationals! Please pass on to your Dad, my congratulations on the Coppa Bella Machina, Best Scagletti, Phil Hill Best and Enzo trophy's. You and your family have definitely earned all of them for all the love, sweat and hard work you've put into that car!!

    Here are some of my photos from Saturday 10/2/10.

    Enjoy,

    Bill P.

    What a GREAT sound from a 4-cylinder car!!

    Thanks Bryan!

    Bill P.

    P.S. Bryan's dad, Admiral Phillips was the guest speaker at this year's FCA-MAR Enzo Birthday Party. He talked about racing in the 50's & 60's and his "little blue" car. It was a great time for all!!

    Well thank you, it's quite an honor. I almost didn't get it, I had to literally run out of the tent and snap them very quickly before the car was loaded on the truck.

    Good evening,

    You can see in this link a 16 mm color movie of the 1955 GP in Venezuela uploaded to You Tube, it was made by the late General Solis Martinez, who gave me a copy in DVD:

    http://www.youtube.com/user/MrCaribe1970?feature=mhee

    In one of the frames you can see your dads Ferrari Mondial (look for the blue car !)

    There is another movie of another race in the same circuit, earlier in 1955, with several Mercedes 300Sl, Triumphs TR2, etc.

    Regards,

    Eduardo Muñoz

    Wow! What great footage. Thanks for posting. Unfortunately there's no sound. :(

    It was great to see Juan Manuel Fangio. I saw (2) little blue cars. I'm assuming the Admiral's car was the first one since I believe Harry Schell and Eugenio Castellotti won 1st in their class at that race.

    This car has nothing to do with this thread: Ferrari 860 Monza #0602M Midwest 500 Elkhart Lake 8 September 1957 Phil Hill practice car, Luigi Chinetti in front.

    thanks, Boudewijn.

    For anyone heading to Monterey next year (2015), we have been invited to show the Mondial at the Quail Motorsports Gathering followed by some track time at the FCA National at Laguna Seca.

    Sad to see the car go up for auction next month. I love that you and your dad shared it here before it became the big deal car that it is today. We knew it when it was still a project in the garage.

    That's fantastic, I saw the Petrolicious piece a few years ago but hadn't seen the Jay Leno piece. Very glad I was able to see the car all those years ago. Good luck at auction Admiral!
