Ever since Thomas Magnum raced on to the small screen in his famous red 308, I have had a love, appreciation and admiration for the work of Enzo Ferrari and his team of master craftsmen. Yes, their automobiles will get you from point A to B, but it is much, much more than that. They get you there in uniquely Italian style and class! When you arrive, you have a mixed feeling of profound sadness that your drive is over, shaken with a heavy dose of excitement to share your rolling art with those that greet you. Even though each model would be a treat to own, there are still those that rise to the top in this elite class of motor-masterpieces. I was fortunate enough to witness this year’s gathering in person!
Each year, for 5 brief days, Ferrari owners from around the country and beyond, descend on Palm Beach to enjoy the Cavallino Classic. They bring their daily drivers as well as examples that only see the light of day once a year. Others, who only dream of owning a piece of rolling-art (that’s where I come in), are equally as welcome to look and take in the feel of track days as these remarkable machines carve the corners. Brand new models that have never been seen locally in person as well as historic, 1-of-a-kind Le Mans winners are lined up. No ropes or guards keep you away…only your respect creates a inpenetrable barrier refraining your touch of these truly beautiful creations.
This image shows one of the many rare treats we enjoyed on that sunny South Florida day. Even in the land of excessive wealth and high-priced toys, the fiery red marvels still turned every head and did not disappoint.
