Information on the car below from the Ferrari Club of America.

Pirelli Ferrari 599 Rome Ga


Our 50th Anniversary celebration – “Passione” kicked off at Concorso Italiano 2012! This was the launch of our 599 Relay car as it began a 20,000-mile journey across North America to visit every Region and Chapter and to both the Palm Springs and Elkhart Lake Annual Meets.

The relay is led by a special, one-off Ferrari 599GTB-HGTE built specially for Passione. This unique Ferrari, the very last North America specification 599 produced, has been made possible by Jim Taylor, FCA member and Patrono Principale of the FCA’s 50th Anniversary, and by Ferrari North America. The 599 has a unique paint scheme and interior design, as well as custom graphics representing the 50-year history of the FCA.

It stopped by the Rome, GA headquarters of Pirelli before heading to downtown Rome for a photo-op.

Here’s the write-up from the Rome News-Tribune:

The very last Ferrari North American Specification 599 car will be in town for a ceremonial tire change at the Pirelli Tire North American headquarters.

Ethics Commission declines to make George Anderson pay for frivolous complaints

From the Rome News-Tribune:

Rome’s George Anderson, who accused Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal of ethical wrongdoing, will not have to pay the governor’s attorney fees over three complaints that were dismissed.

The Government Transparency Commission voted 3-1 on Friday against making Anderson pay a portion of the legal fees that Deal spent to address complaints from Anderson dealing with Deal’s daughter-in-law, appointees and others.

Anderson said he was being asked to pay $10,387.50.

“I’m going home relieved,” Anderson said in a phone interview with the Rome News-Tribune. “I’m on cloud nine. I’ve been very stressed about (it). I’ve been working for 10 months at the Subway at night and substitute teaching, but I didn’t need to face trying to come up with money to pay Gov. Nathan Deal.”

Deal attorney Randy Evans said Anderson’s complaints were meritless and slanderous.
