  • Pics from local Italian car show.

    My wife and I visited an Italian vehicle show that was part of the local Festa Italiana yesterday. I was disappointed that were fewer classics there. Didn't bother with the motorcycle area; there was only one ratty old Ducati single. Everything else was less than a dozen years old, with the vast majority being modern, red Ducati sport bikes—a real snooze. I went with hopes of seeing Morinis and Guzzis and Laverdas, but no joy there.

    On the car side, it was largely the same: Lots of modern Murcielagos, Huracans, and 4XX Ferraris, with very few classic cars. For me, the absolute standout was the rally livery Dino 246 GT. It flat tore my eyes away from the other cars. A couple of F12s were there, which were more striking in person that I would've expected. My wife's favorite was the 458 Spider with Tricolore racing stripe. There were a few Fiat 124s (both old and new gen), two X1-9s, and a smattering of Fiat-era Maseratis. I was perhaps the only one there fawning over the Mondial T cabriolet, which is one of my favorite Ferraris despite its bottom-rung stature. There was also a Testarossa there, but my boss has one I see all the time, so I didn't bother snapping a picture.

    Like I said, I was disappointed by the lack of classic cars and bikes, but still not a bad way to spend a Sunday after church.

    Oh, there was also this charming Quattrocento.
