Bowtie Ferraris

Exotic, hand-built Ferraris of the 1950’s and Chevrolet’s family sedan produced by the thousands would seem to have little in common. but it’s a twist of automotive history that quite a few Ferraris might no longer exist were it not for the Chevy V8 engine. Randy Cook’s Bowtie Ferraris documents how a surprisingly large number of multimillion dollar Ferraris owe their survival to an engine from one of the least expensive sedans produced in America. His book is an important addition to the body of Ferrari history, as he explores a topic never before examined in any detail. - David Seibert, Ferrari Club Historian and manager of the Ferrari Historic Challenge race series in North America.

About the Author

Randy Cook has been interested in sports cars since his high school days in Florida. His first car was an English Ford followed by an Alfa Romeo. Beginning in the late 60s and continuing to the present, he has raced SAABs, Volvos and Triumphs with SCCA and several vintage groups and worked races as a flagger, tech inspector and timer. After retiring from federal service as a criminal investigator he moved to the birthplace of post WWII sports car racing, Watkins Glen, NY where he volunteered at the International Motor Racing Research Center and got caught up in the historical aspect of sports car racing. Almost 20 years ago he purchased his Chevy powered 1959 Ferrari PF Coupe and since then has found himself having to answer the often asked question, why would anyone put a Chevy engine in a Ferrari. Randy lives in Tallahassee, FL and travels to races and shows all over the Eastern U.S.
