Early October of 2017 a special anniversary literally had parts of New York City painted red, specifically Ferrari Red as the Italian car manufacturer celebrated 70 years of existence in New York City taking over Rockefeller Plaza with an amazing assortment of historical Ferrari motor cars on display right in the plaza where at this moment this year’s Christmas Tree stands ready to be lit. In addition, as can seen in this image I captured, 30 Rockefeller Plaza or 30 Rock or as it is known now that Comcast is the owner of NBC-Universal the Comcast Building was done up in Ferrari Red spot lights that made the 77 story edifice appear as a red skyscraper in the skyline to celebrate the race-rich car-makers storied history. Enzo Ferrari who was born in Modena Italia back in 1898 started Scuderia Ferrari in 1929 where Enzo purchased and prepared Alfa Romeos for what was referred to as gentlemen drivers essentially becoming Alfa Romeo’s racing division for the established car maker. In 1933 it became official as Alfa shuttered its own racing team and utilized the Scuderia Ferrari as the official race team, basically outsourcing the racing to Enzo company. That changed in 1938 when Alfa Romeo re-established its inhouse race operations and made Enzo Ferrari the manager. Well Enzo was not a corporate man and that arrangement only lasted a year when in 1939 Enzo resigned and determined that he would develop and build his own motor car. Unfortunately Enzo was bound contractually to not use the Ferrari for four years so he began Auto Avio Construzioni in the old facilities of Scuderia Ferrari in Modena when primarily machining apparatus and aircraft hardware. In 1943 those operations moved to Maranello where the company still resided today. The company built several race cars during this period but obviously post WWII Italy was still in recovery and it would not be until 1947 when the first car to be branded Ferrari would be handmade in Maranello 125S which Enzo Ferrari grudging sold to bankroll the resurrected Scuderia Ferrari which really was his passion, his race cars. He wanted distinction of the Ferrari sold to consumers and kept the Scuderia Ferrari name for the racing motor cars. Enzo remained intricately involved in the operations of both the consumer and racing divisions until his death in 1988, all the drivers of the Ferrari race, particularly the Formula 1 had to garner Enzo Ferrari’s approval. Ferrari has amassed over 5,000 race victories on race tracks, roads and courses throughout the world, an unparalleled and legendary company in motor racing. On the consumer side, before his passing in 1988, Enzo was deeply involved in the design of the Ferrari F40 supercar, considered still the most road worthy and best of the Ferrari super cars. Almost 30 years later, he would be proud of both the consumer and racing portions of his company as they continue to roll out marvelous motor cars and garner victories on tracks around the world. I was awe struck in 1978 at my first New York International Auto Show held at the New York Coliseum at Columbus Circle where today the Time Warner Towers stand by a beautiful Ferrari Red 308 GTS, it was love at first sight so to speak. My favorite Ferrari of all time it remains, yes I know it was featured on the CBS show Magnum PI, in theaters in Family Vacation as the car Christine Brinkley teased Chevy Chase with, License to Drive, Canonball Run and so many other because it was a truly lovely car designed by Leonardo Fioravanti at Pinifarina Designs. Much to my disappointment one was not on display in Rockefella Plaza, but a later 328 GTB, same beautiful sheet metal, but I did not like the ‘modernization’ to that models front-end but it was necessary to make it compliant with crash standards in the 1980’s.
