But the idea was so appealing that he just had to check it out in person. The four-seater was all in pieces, and the engine was stripped out to be installed in another car. He bought the bargain supercar as a retirement project. However, Garry's dad was the one who actually started putting the thing back together. It's amazing; he was 80 years old when he took it on, and two years later, they were both driving it down the road.
But the story doesn't end there, as a transport vehicle large enough to move vehicles across the country in comfort now accompanies the Chevy-swapped Ferrari everywhere.
This started life as an American LaFrance fire engine. The owner wanted something that's comfortable on long journeys and got people's attention. Inside, you get a teal custom interior with seats from a 1973 BMW 3.0 CS.
But don't expect the Ferrari to have become a trailer queen. No, the owner says driving is the most enjoyable thing he does, and a car must never get to a point where you're afraid to get it dirty. But Garry is also thinking about the future, expecting his descendants to be driving it a hundred or two hundred years from now.
