Motor Trend Vintage Video Find

From Motor Trend Magazine:

For the enthusiast, there’s nothing like seeing in-period footage of vintage cars tearing up the road, and that’s exactly what today’s video find is. Three Ferraris – a 250 GTO, 250 California Spyder, and 250 Pininfarina Coupe – on Mulholland Drive in the 1960s being driven the way Enzo intended. Of course there’s a fair amount of goofing around by the drivers as well – one of whom who was a founding member of Southern California’s first Ferrari club.

The video was recently rediscovered by the poster (the owner and driver of the GTO) and his commentary – full of recollections, memories, and observations – is as mesmerizing as the footage itself. Today, this collection of three Ferraris would be worth in the neighborhood of $20 million, but in the period this 8mm film was shot, they were considered nothing but interesting used cars – the vintage Ferrari market had yet to begin its stratospheric soar. Different times, to be sure. Click below to check it out.

Tried to post this yesterday.

You probably never thought the values would get this high when you were pushing it on Mulholland back in the day!
