L.A. Story

Concorso Ferrari 2014

We spent most of the weekend in California, ostensibly to cover the Ferraris on Colorado gathering. Here is one sample; more galleries to follow.

  • Yes, lots of Ferraris.
  • No, not lots of grail cars.  No 288GTO/F40/F50, so we will content ourselves with past auction and SEMA sightings of those. For now.
  • Some race cars.
  • No FXXs.

We really loved the streetscape staging.  Our principal bitch about Cars and Coffee Hookers and Squirrels the Scottsdale Motorsports Gathering (other than the new name) is that it is held at a strip mall.  Yes, it’s a foofy strip mall where you can complement your million dollar Enzo by ringing up a couple of 6 figure Rolexes, but still, it’s just a palm-treed generic and HOA-conforming strip mall.

What a backdrop. [/s]

We hoped to see one of the above cars at least.  We hoped against hope for a LaFerrari sighting.  Nope and nope, but as the pictures to come should show, it was still worth it.
