9 First Annual Ferrari Cavallino Ferrari Classic gets off to a good start

Well, Cavallino magazine held it first ever party, the First Annual Cavallino Ferrari Classic, and by all accounts, it seemed to go off pretty well. Sixty three Ferraris lined up on the front lawn of The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida, for the Concours d'Elegance, at which time, Chief Judge Ed Gilbertson and his judging teams scoured the entries to pick the successful winners of the various cups and bowls.

A show car takes on a life of its own ... a true race car for the street

We enjoy show cars, especially Ferrari show cars of course, since they are a firm's chosen image, shown to the public. Cars are most shown when they are part of a current model year; the public is familiar with them, but never passes a chance to get close again, to enjoy another once-over. Other cars presented are variations on a theme, to see if the public's tastes will allow a further extension of the current forms.

A pretty name for a car that is just that - pretty in the soft feminine sense, pretty to view, study, appreciate.

Ferraris carrying the flag

When last we met, Luca di Montezemolo has just been appointed President of Ferrari, with a mandate to rejuvenate the fortunes of the Ferrari Formula One team.

Ferrari introduces the new Grand Prix car

Mr. Montezemolo also made the decision to bring along the new Ferrari Formule One car as soon as possible. This car had been in the works since last year under the direction of Messrs Nichols and Migeot, and it was rumoured to be quite radical. Code named by the press as the "644", it was slowed a bit in late summer and fall as intensive work was spent on keeping the current 643 competitive.
