2014 Classic Sports Sunday, Mar-A-Lago Club
Tommy and Jane with their Doretti were among some fine examples of many marques on show at the Classic Sports Sunday
event held 26th January 2014, at the Mar-A-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.
Tommy Entenza had just turned 16 in the 1950s when he got a gleaming white Doretti with a black leather interior. He was so proud of his new sports car that he kept a pictorial scrapbook which he still owns, but he sold the car when he graduated. Over the years he has owned many other cars but always dreamed of owning another Doretti. So in 2005 he bought another Doretti, (Chassis No.1208) black with a dark red interior.
Chassis No.1208 was originally registered in Glasgow as OGD 316 and owned at some point by James Love before being
exported to Canada.
