When walking around Pebble Beach during Monterey Car Week, anything and everything is possible. This includes simply showing up at the Lodge to check in for the weekend and pick up some media passes, walking downstairs to check out the area, and finding ourselves face to face with one of the showstoppers of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Ferrari’s 365 GTB/4 was the last front-engine, V12 flagship the company produced until the 550 Maranello launched in 1996, a full 20+ years after the end of the 365’s production. Both the hardtop and the convertible (pictured here) are some of the best examples of what the late Sixties had to offer the public in terms of pure exotic flash, and even today they are highly sought after. Only 122 Spyders were produced by Ferrari between 1971 and 1973, as compared to 1,024 berlinettas. Nick and I spent a long period of time just gaping at this little red number and the time felt well-spent. This was the first car we spotted in Pebble during our time there, and it was a terrific way to kick off the festivities. Enjoy the photos, and from both Nick and myself here at Mind Over Motor, we would like to wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving holiday.
