Hey, I've driven one of those.  My father's friend started collecting exotics back in the '70s when it was a lot more grassroots than it is now.  There were not as many specialty mechanics on the East Coast as there are now, so he had my father work on them.

My dad's friend bought it used from Jamie Wyeth, Andrew's son, who at the time was about 30.  It was pale metallic blue, and looked subtle, but good.  It had definitely been driven like cars are supposed to be driven.

It was later restored to concours condition and painted Ferrari Red.  Of course, it looked great, but maybe not as interesting as it did in the offbeat blue color.

Actually, it was this very car.  Looks like it's been returned to the original color.  And apparently my father's friend was the third owner, not the second.  I knew the two guys that picked it up from Jamie, as well.  It doesn't seem they kept it very long.

Huh. Those look like ancestors of all terrain tires. I wonder how good they worked on muddy, rutted up roads.

Sooooo... Motor Trend is unironically using a picture from Randy Pobst's Pike's Peak accident as the splash for a clickbait article about America's best and worst drivers:
