Reliving The Moment: Highway Patrol meets a Ferrari 126 C2B

Reliving The Moment:  Highway Patrol meets a Ferrari 126 C2B


The story begins in 1984 at a time when Ferrari North America had their headquarters on Katella Avenue in Los Alamitos, a suburb in Orange County. At that time California Highway Patrol officer Bruce West owned a 308 GTS and, in a time when FNA was more client-friendly, Officer West would often drop by FNA’s warehouse to visit. The logistics and quality control of new cars coming through the FNA building was done by FNA employee Bob Nolan and FNA had just gotten in a 1983 126 C2B F1 car which was to be on display at the 1984 LA Auto Show. The 126 C2B had just been flown in from Germany and was apparently the car that was driven by Rene Arnoux in the 1983 season.
