Will you tell the folks back home I nearly made it?
Had offers but don’t know which one to take
Please, don’t tell ’em how you found me
Don’t tell ’em how you found me
Gimme a break, gimme a break
On the way back from L.A. We needed a pit stop. We pulled off at the Eagle Mountain exit. This is California: there are in n Out burgers and Chevrons on every corner, right? First things first. Gas.
A selection of images from the show in Pasadena, California.
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.
Wow – a Capri. The scoop is stupid, especially since it’s as non-functional as the hood vents. I like the idea of the replacement hatch, but jeez, the fit is 20 degrees of fail.
