When he was six years old, Peter Maas nabbed his grandfather’s garage key and snuck into his own future.

When I was very young back in the late ’60s, my uncle had this exact car in this exact color (was there any other color available?). He loaned it to a friend who took it into the local mountains during wintertime and promptly stuffed it into a snow bank, mangling the one piece fiberglas front end. I remember with vivid detail how he found another Zagato in town (yes, there were at least two in San Diego at the time) and convinced the owner to let him make a mold of the car’s front end so that he could produce… Read more »

Unbelievable. The owner here is willing to admit to its flaws, yet at the same time will not admit how wrong he was in his choice; proof that there is no cure for stupidity.

Warning, this is a stealth car. Cute as a bug, but a nasty little thing when it flew past us on the recent rally!

Great video as always and a cool car, love the rolling down the street so as not to wake the neighbours. Do you know what brand of driving shoes Mr Magnusson was wearing?

Very beautiful car!
Just a minor issue, but I have been noticing alot of out-of-focus shots in your videos lately.
