Ferrari Club of America

Posted By Ferrari Club of America I like It Learn More

Early in the 1960s, Ferrari was a little-known name in the United States. There was a small community of racers who had imported Ferraris, frequently used ones. These soon became non-competitive, and some, late in their lives, even acquired American engines. In 1961 or 1962, John Lundin, Gerry Sutterfield and Ken Hutchison were at the Elkhart Lake races with friends, and saw a Ferrari Barchetta in tatty condition. Later in the day, the hood was opened, revealing that the Barchetta had a Chevrolet engine! The group agreed that something had to be done to encourage preservation and restoration of such Ferraris. Ken, John and Gerry were motivated by this experience, and soon joined with others of like mind to develop a Ferrari enthusiasts’ club.

Jack Katzen of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania wrote to Road & Track magazine, indicating his desire to join a Ferrari club, if one existed, but it developed that he did not want to undertake founding one. He did, however, write to those who responded, sending each of them a list of all respondents. The resulting awareness of other Ferrari enthusiasts helped make possible the gathering of potential club organizers and members.
