 is a result of my father's (Jack Reuter) love of 1950's Italian racing cars.  He first encountered them in the early 1950's while competing in SCCA races.  He was amazed at the beauty and sound of the cars that were passing him (and his Austin Healy) and vowed to someday own some of them.  His dream came true in 1965 when he purchased his first Ferrari, Dino Ferrari's 1953 prototype 166 Mille Miglia, for $1,000.  But, while stationed at Fort Sam Huston in Texas in the 1950's and attending a race, he saw two small Italian racing cars called Bandini.  It was love at first sight!  He spent the next 30 years or so trying to find one to buy and finally succeeded in the early 1980's when he acquired the only remaining Bandini Siluro with a series two DOHC engine, 1955 Bandini Siluro 750cc DOHC #358.  A few years later he sold his 1957 Ferrari 500 TRC and 1954 Maserati A6GCS but kept his prized Bandini.  This web site is tribute to Jack Reuter's obsession with etceterinis and Bandini in particular.  The majority of the photos and scans are from his extensive collection and my recent collecting.  I would like to give credit to the 1950's magazines I have scanned: Road and Track, SCCA Sports Car Magazine, Car Life Magazine, Sports Cars Illustrated, Speed Age, Trend Books, Auto Speed and Sport, Auto Sport Review, and Motorsport Magazine.  I would also like to thank friends who have contributed pictures and information or helped to promote this web site: Michele Orsi Bandini (Bandini), Pete Vack (Veloce, Mary Kuly (Bandini, Giaur, and ERM), Jim Jenne (Stanguellini), Casey Annis (Vintage Racecar Journal), Mark Brinker (Giaur), Raffi Minasian (Giaur), Alberto Taraschi (Giaur), Alex Vazeos (Bandini, Giaur, Abarth and Moretti), Marty Stein (Siata), Michael Ashley Brown (Volpini), Joel Stein (Moretti), Barry Boor (Formula Junior), Marc Richelsoph (Bandini), Dick Irish (Bandini and Siata), Bill Giltzow (Taraschi, Bandini, Nardi, and Moretti), Steven Silverstein (SCCA race results), and Tom Clayton (  And most importantly, I thank my wife Tracy and my son Preston for putting up with my late nights and time/hours spent on this web site.  Cheers all!
