20 Cylinders Of F1 Fury Scream To Life In Tacoma

20 Cylinders Of F1 Fury Scream To Life In Tacoma

Dateline: Tacoma. December 7. – It was sensory overload as Formula 1 racing history fired to life at our monthly Caffeine & Gasoline cruise-in. The raucous engines of Niki Lauda’s Ferrari 312T and Jochen Mass’ McLaren M23 were hard on the ears for sure, but I was surprised by the pronounced pounding they generated in my chest cavity.

Unrivaled: Niki Lauda and the Ferrari 312T-022

Unrivaled: Niki Lauda and the Ferrari 312T-022

I remember the day it rolled off the trailer. I couldn’t believe the car was here. THIS car. Dirty and worn, sure, but every bit as beautiful as in my childhood memories. I had to sit in it. Hold the steering wheel HE held. Imagine the Veglia tach sweeping toward 14,000 RPM. Snap the gated shifter through the gears. I could have stayed in the seat for hours.

This Ferrari F1-2000, chassis #203, won the Canadian Grand Prix and finished second at the French Grand Prix and Hungarian Grand Prix with Michael Schumacher at the helm. Everything about the car screams “speed”. Even sitting still, it looks ready to burst out of our garage and hunt down the nearest race circuit!

What’s better than a blue ribbon?

What’s better than a blue ribbon?

When people have success using Griot’s Garage products, we love to hear about it! We receive countless letters from customers who have won everything from weekend car shows to the Pebble Beach Concours. But when our customer’s 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa hit the auction block recently, like the rest of the world, we were blown away by the result.

I also  enjoy being able to spark conversation (and maybe even a little controversy) here and there. Lists always seem to generate some of both, so let’s bring ’em back! Here are my Top 10 Unappreciated cars.

Spray-On Car Wash: Ferrari Clean-Up

Spray-On Car Wash: Ferrari Clean-Up

After a recent  road trip with his dad, Richard pulled this Ferrari 456 into the garage. They’d covered 1,700 miles and five states in four days, and we thought it’d be nice to clean up the old girl for him. But, in typical Northwest fashion, the cool weather and driving rain kept our hose and bucket stored away. So, we stayed inside and reached for the Spray-On Car Wash.

Vertorama is short for “vertical panorama” (stitching multiple photgraphs together vertically), and it’s just one of the techniques Horace Kwan used to create this stunning image. The car is a Ferrari F2008 which, since it wears #1, was likely piloted by Kimi Räikkönen during the 2008 F1 season. Congrats, Horace. Enjoy your prize!

5 Great Automotive Rivalries (and one “no-contest”)

5 Great Automotive Rivalries (and one “no-contest”)

Horsepower or Handling? Ford or Chevy? NASCAR or F1? The rivalry is an integral part of the automotive experience. Gearheads everywhere are completely aware of the biggest grudge-matches in motoring, and I thought I would take a chance to expose a few. On which side of the fence do you fall, and which classic rivalries would you add to the list?
