Skipping steps: The first drive! (sort of)

Yesterday was a big day for the project. The blog has been a little quiet over the past few weeks as we have been pushing very hard to finish the car. We promise to come back and fill in the missing parts but for now a major milestone has been reached. After some 3 and a half years off the road 01464 made its first drive on the street. This came on the back of a massive final effort where Paul, Dad, and I put in over 100 man hours in the final weekend.

The drive though was short lived. We were committed to having the car on a transporter for 9 am and with the final spanner turned with only minutes left on the clock we made the short 1 km drive to the shipping company office. The destination? The Ferrari Club of America Annual Meet in Virginia where our Dino will make its debut at the Concours on Thursday. We welcome blog followers to come by and say hello as we would be happy to show you the car.

Now for some photos of the first drive:


  1. Stunning. Congratulations and best of luck at the Concours, I hope you brought another car for all the hardware you are bound to win!

  2. Wow congratulations, I've followed your blog for a couple of years so it's amazing to see it finished. Perhaps the best resto ever?! Looking forward to the final installments, regards Neil, UK
