Magazine Cavallino Nr 27 - Double Whammy! - Ferrari 412 review and ode to the 400

I stumbled upon this edition and was surprised it was not in my archive. So I ordered a back copy. This edition contained a review of the than new 412 and a seperate article called 'Ode to the 400'  A very well written and surprising article from an American perspective. The author clearly understood the essence of the 400. Word up!
