Well I've known this car since Ray Helm imported it from the USA and restored it in the early 1980's. He sold it to the current owner in the mid 1990's (?) and yesterday was it's first outing since the restoration was finished. It's the owners prerogative to do as he pleases; but I must say I haven't seen such a BLING resto since Pebble Beach circa 1980.
It's high quality workmanship for sure; but light years away from the standard and spec that it left the factory in 1952.
So bearing that in mind, how did it win the concour class and outright ?

Hmmmmmmm, have to disagree I am afraid. This 275 was owned and restored by the same bloke as the 195 inter and it's a tad OTT and non-standard as well.  BTW, just in case people get the wrong impression, I know the guy well and he is a nice bloke. Just has a different style and it's different strokes for different folks :)

Winners are blingers

Lets just say it wouldn't be the case at Pebble Beach in 2012.

Good looking colour scheme though :)

My late fathers old 275 GTB/4 with my young fella.  I spent a lot of time behind the wheel of this car, it's sublime.
Poor old thing needs some TLC now which was a bit sad to see. It was last restored in the mid to late 1970's so it's probably time for another go.

It made a whole shit load of people happy to see a car like that up close and personal which just wouldn't happen at  one of those hairy chested he man race meetings  :rolleyes:
