Celebrating Tom Meade At Concorso Italiano This Year

by Mike –

Concorso Italiano has announced a celebration of the life and achievements of Tom Meade, the American who went to Italy in the 1960s to follow his dream of designing cars that would be his visions of supercars, to be held this year at Concorso Italiano on August 15 during Monterey Car Week.

Tom Meade was a free lance designer and car salesman who moved from California to Italy in the early 1960s to live his car obsessed dream. He designed some very exotic and beautiful modified Ferraris. The first one he named the Thomassima 1, which in Italian means “the maximum from Thomas.”

There were other Thomassima models and he designed three Ferrari Nembo Spyders. He also designed modifications for Ferrari owners who wanted something a little more special.

We all hope that owners of these special cars will bring them out to Concorso Italiano and share them with the rest of us.

Below are photos of a Ferrari Nembo Spyder styled by Tom Meade.
