Tell me do you know where the legenedary Prancing Horse emblem originated.
    Actually that's incorrect, Scuderia Ferrari was founded in 1929, when Enzo was still with Alfa Romeo. Check out some old Alfa Romeo race cars, and you'll see the trademark prancing horse with the letters S F bellow it.

    No my friend you are incorrect, the prancing horse was the logo of Enzo Ferrari and he put it on everything he raced, He drove for Alfa Romeo, the S F on the badge mean Scuderia Ferrari, which is Italian meaning Ferrari Stable, or in modern terms Ferrari Garage, this meant it was Enzo Ferrari's car but not his team, Alfa Romeo did not have anything to do with the Ferrari make. Enzo Ferrari did not start the Ferrari Brand untill 1939 when he formed his own team called Scuderia Ferrari, this is when the team was founded. I think you are confused, and thaught that that Ferrari was simply a body supplyer and Alfa Romeo made the engines, but this is incorrect, Alfa Romeo made everything, and it was not untill 1939 when Enzo Ferrari First built a body and engine.

    Yes, Ferrari didn't build cars until 1939, however I'm talking about the racing team ~ Scuderia Ferrari, which was started in 1929. Here check out this link http://www.histomobile.com/histomob/...?chat=13&lan=2

    No I am sorry but this information is also incorrect, and I was not talking about the Road Cars, the Road Cars were first built in the 1950's the 166 Inter was the first road car. I have read on a wall at the Galleria Ferrari in Maranello, that the Ferrari was founded in 1939, I stick to my word because it is correct. I would also like to tell you that Enzo Ferrari raced with the Prancing horse in the early 1910's this is when it first appeared on one his formula 1 cars, and this as you know was not a Ferrari it was an Alfa Romeo, I am a very proud Italian and Ferrari fan and I will continue arguing that I am correct. But I well let you think what you want to think, it does not matter to me.

    It was toward the end of 1919 before Enzo raced in a CMN.

    The Cavallino Rampante ( prancing horse ) was used by the Italian WW1 pilot Major Francesco Baracca as insignia on his plane in the early 10s through to his death in 1981. From the Ferrari history books a quote ...
    Mr. Ferrari further indicated that the symbol
    of the prancing pony was given to him by Contessa Paolina, Baracca's
    mother, to "bring him luck". Ferrari accepted and only changed Baracca's
    background to yellow to indicate Modena, his own home city."

    Small little correction, there was no Formula one in the 1910's. Just thought I'd let ya know. However, I could be wrong on the information, website could be wrong. However it would be nice if you could back up your claims with proof.

    Ok, not trying to sound like an a**hole or anything, but as my user name indicates I am a huge Ferrari fan as well. However I'm only 19 and continuing to learn more about everyday. By the way, what literature have you read, and do you know if this literature is available in the US.

    Thank you
