Hey,

It's been a long time since I posted something at Atlas BB...

I'm on a quest to find a particular foto of a Ferrari 330 P4 at the 1967 Targa Florio.

Its a beautifull Black and White foto of the car in the middle of a village (wich one ? I don't know); for me, it epithomizes the spirit of an epoch long gone, when Sports Cars were at the top of Motor Racing.

The one and only time I saw that foto was in a "Special Ferrari" of Auto journal of the late eighties (87 or 88). Unfortunately I´m no longer in the posession of said magazine, something wich I'll forever regret.

Can someone in this forum be kind enough to help me in this subject ? Thanks in advance.

You will find the photo I suspect you're looking for in post 24 of this thread.

That became my new favourite photo when Doug posted it, Tim!

I asked at the time whether it was Vaccarella, who would have been my guess looking at the reception from the crowd, but no one confirmed it. Do you know who it is?

James, I don't, I'm afraid, but I'm sure someone around here must do.

Tim, thanks for the link and the beautifull photos.

However, the one I'm looking for is a front caption, not a rear one.

B.T.W, L' Auto-journal was a French (or perhaps Belgium) magazine.

That one's not a P4 it's a 512.

Oh dear. That'll teach me to check more carefully before I post. Sorry! :blush:

However, when I went back to check I found that the photo i/d includes the letters VACA, so I think it must definitely be Nino.

So my question's been answered but Alvega's hasn't. One out of two's not bad, Tim… :)

It is Vaccarella - Targa 1970 - see pages 54/56 of Track Pass for the full story!!

Nice fotos P 4 Staff, but not quite the one I'm looking for.

This one was of the car right in the middle of a village (as in your 2º picture), but taken from an overhead view (perhaps from a balcony in a building).

Nevetheless, I would very much like to see your 1966 fotos. In case I mixed up the dates ....

MKIVJ6, excellent foto, and it is getting closer, but...

The one I'm talking about was taken from the other side of the road, so that what you saw was the front and the left side. The car was also further back, in a more oblique prespective. This one is almost vertical.

Sorry to be such a bore, but the darned thing keeps haunting me after nearly 18 years...

Guys, we`re on to something ! I´m 99% sure it is the first foto edited by P 4 Staff. The remaining 1% accounts for the fact that it distinctly remember the picture being B&W. Perhaps it was just the way it was printed in the magazine.


Thank you very much for your time and patience !

Well one of them appears to be GP Library copyright - so just take care where and how you use it...

The penultimate one is certainly one of Geoff Goddard's - it features on the cover of the new Targa Florio book.
