1. A Hot Ride

757-Isorivolta Rcng Car (Red)++

During a photo shoot at Sarasota, I spied this great looking low-slung beauty, the Varedo model of the Isorivolta racing car. From the Internet, I learned it was the last Maserati to be designed by Ercole Spada, a veteran designer from Carrozzeria. As chief designer and stylist, he wanted a pure performance car and chose a fiberglass body. Equipped with a 325 horsepower engine and ZF 5-speed transmission, it was a hit as it debuted at the Torino Auto Show around 1972. It was later found to be a great handling vehicle during testing at the Monza Race Track. Not too long after this, the Rivolta family sold their interest in the company. The project died without the Varedo ever being introduced as a production model.

Too bad! It would have been such a great car to drive.

An enthusiastic amateur photographer, I enjoy picturing the events, people, animals and things in my life. And so joining in the "52 Week Challenge" of interpreting life through a lens sounds as if it will be a lot of fun -- presenting my view through the lens and seeing how others in our photography group interpret their views concerning a given subject.
