Long before I knew John Saccameno as the proprietor of Sport & Specialty, I knew him as a driving instructor, wheel-horse of our sports car club, and a fun guy. Hotshoe and I know he has a business to run, so we don't pester him at the shop too often. (Or at the track, for that matter.) The cars that go through the shop are interesting (some fascinating), and the work is first rate. So we have come to regard our visits as pilgrimages.
If interested, you can search this blog for previous posts about S & S. Here's what we saw on our visit yesterday. (And here's a link to the website):
|Above and Below: This ground-up Ferrari 330 GT also includes a conversion from RHD to LHD. This car was in the|
shop two years ago when we visited, but won't the there next spring. It's almost done, appearances to the contrary.
|Lampredi V-12 in the Ferrari.|
|Some of the cars Sport & Specialty has worked on over the years. While S & S does rebuilds and major repairs, the|
majority of the work going through the shop is restoration, from high-quality "driver" up to concours show cars.
