12 Car week

It has gotten so big it requires Feature treatment - the car week in Monterey. More events, longer events, more cars, grander cars, more people, greater enthusiasts, more auctions, higher auction values. Where does it end? Where to begin? We take the major events one by one - too much to do, too little time. But your staff was up for the challenge. Most importantly, all the important Ferraris at each event are detailed with model, serial number, color and owner where known.

20 Concorse Italiano - makes you an honorary Italian

An overwhelming Italian day - but no complaints. The new and rivitalized Concorso Italiano proved its worth again this year, by replicating, and even improving upon, the high standards that were set and accomplished last year by Tom McDowell and team - fast and convenient parking, plentiful food and drink, good directions and organization - all the little things can make or brake a day.

23 Pebble Beach concours d'Elegance 2013

Still the finest automobiles from around the world. The Cavallino Staff is hard-to-impress. But we are continually impressed. More to do, more to see, more to enjoy, and it's all about the choicest automobiles ever made.

25 Monterey Motorsports Reunion 2013

Fabled old race Ferraris at a fabled old track. But, will vintage Ferraris be present in the future? A good point to consider as the newer generation of viewer has other interest.

29 The second of many - the Ferrari 212 Inter Pinin Farina Cabriolet, s/n 0235 EU

Why Ferrari became famous - A new owner goes to a race track with his street Ferrari. His race car is not ready, so he enters the street car. It does ninth. True story? True story. Tony Parravano buys a little Ferrari 212 Cabriolet, goes to the Nürburgring. His Maserati is not ready, so he enters the Ferrari 212 Inter Cabriolet. The very long life but very short racing career of this very special Pinin Farina Cabriolet, s/n 0235 EU.

A season full op ups and downs, as Ferrari shows continual improvement, but frustratingly the leaders remain just out of reach.

47 Goodwood Festival of Speed 2013
A hill climb and car displays in your own backyard - what a crazy idea. Until it wasn't.

It's hard to describe this cornucopia of automotive related activities, as there is so much going on, and in so many different places (albeit on one man's grand estate) that is is difficult to grasp it all.

Silverstone Classic
Amidst hundreds of classic, sports and racing cars, some very choice Ferraris.

This is a rather new event, though actually a revival of a vintage car event that used the Silverstone circuit for many years several years ago.
