In a recent interview between Matthew White, editor for The Diecast Magazine and Andrew "Jack" Griffith, Matt asked what was the inspriation for the Griffith. Jack's reply: "I was racing a Cobra as the East Coast end of Carroll Shelby's racing team. Mark Donohue was Vice President of my company and drove the Cobra. Carroll and I were talking one night in a bar in New York City and I said 'I think I can build a car to be faster and less expensive [than the Cobra]'. We had both been drinking, and the next morning I said, 'What did I say last night?' That's how it all started."

During the same interview Jack was asked how well the Automodello replica compares to the 1:1 Griffith Series 200, Jack's reply to Matt White: "The model is perfect in all ways."

Certificate of Authenticity hand-signed by Andrew "Jack" Griffith and Bill Warner, Chairman of Amelia Concours d' Elegance with a build limited to 85 commemorating Jack's 85th birthday.
