The Ferrari has about half the weight.

And traction control.

The heavy Chevy might indicate 60 on the speedo first, but the prancing horse will be doing sixty first.

Ferrari's trump card has always been when it got up to speed it didn't have to slow down regardless of what the road did... if the driver had the chops.

The 300 SL is probably as influential an automobile as ever produced.
You have to think of Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson.
The "'68" is unlikely since the coupe was available from 1954 t0 '57 and the roadster from '57 to '63.
Sometime around 1967, one of the owners of the neighborhood liquor store bought a roadster. When I admired it, he tossed me the keys and said "Bring it back in an hour or two." A friend and I did enjoy that ride.
It has always stuck in my mind how wide the thresholds were:

Yes it was barn stashed in '68 with 75 k miles. I'd love to see a picture of it when it was put away.

Well, that surprises me. But I approve. I wonder if they pass along the full costs of the manufacturing old parts.
