Car Pron: The Ferrari 250 GT SWB Deserves a Special Caretaker (Petrolicious)

This short film appeals to the neo-vintage mantra here at ROTL. I think what makes vintage automobiles like the Ferrari 250 GT (short wheelbase in this case) so great is the work that's required for maintenance, the super-organic feel behind the wheel, sounds and the smells. The term 'old school' is used for too many things these days, but when it comes to the method in which Ferrari mechanics of old learned their trade, from first hand tutoring from an existing master mechanic, this is what old school truly is. No manuals, just trust, human interaction, hands-on experience and feel for the original designers' intent. The importance of craftsmanship can never be too overstated.
