An early correspondence with the one and only - Enzo Ferrari

In 1978, Cavallino magazine was born by two enthusiasts who thought a Ferrari magazine would be fun, and easy to do. It definitively was fun but more work than anyone ever thought. Charles Queener was the first Editor, John Barnes the Publisher, and after the first two ideas were published they had the innocent idea of sending copies to Enzo Ferrari himself.

The Last of a Royal Line - Ferrari 205 GT Europa Vignale, s/n 0359 GT

Vigilant built some dazzling bodies for the early Ferraris, but its time was limited. Ferrari went in a different direction with Pinin Farina and the eloquent designs from Vignale were no more. The final Vignale rendition on a Ferrari chassis - the 250 GT, s/n 0359 GT, was ordered by Princess Liliana de Réthy, an avid collector of early Ferraris.

33 Palm Beach Cavallino Classic 23
January 22-26, 2014

It was a good year, with more Ferraris, and more interesting Ferraris, then ever before. Judging was extremely tough, as the quality of Ferraris continue to grow. The historic racing grew, with new marques in the Pre-War Group and the classic cars at Mar-a-Lago also reached a new level of rarity, celebrity and uniqueness.

37 Grand Driving Tour of Palm Beach

The Grand Tour of Palm Beach on Thursday afternoon is held for those who are not into careening around a track but still wish to enjoy their Ferraris on the road in interesting surroundings.

Lecture Series explores the basics

Only two Ferraris were on display at the Cavallino Lecture Series at The Breakers on Thursday morning, but they easily filled the bill since they were both rare and unique. The 1948 Ferrari 166 Spyder Corsa, s/n 016 I owned by the Collier Museum was lectured by Scott George. A 1964 Ferrari 250 LM, s/n 6045 was discussed by Jeremy & James Cottingham of DK Engineering.

50 Weekends of racing in Vaca Vally, California
Ocean's Eleven

The history of Ferrari racing in the USA is a fertile field of study - who raced where, but more importantly, what Ferrari was it. The latest mystery to uncover - the Ferraris at the Vaca Valley races in California. A number of excellent articles have been published in Cavallino Magazine (issues 124-129) tracing the history of the Neumann Ferraris. Concerning the 1958 Vaca Valley Road Races, only a little information was available.

66 Ferraris in Scottsdale 2014
Scottsdale sees more records - no end in sight?

There seems to be no lack of many to chase the best Ferraris, this with good provenance and low build numbers. But is it reaching a point where the best cares are hard to come by?

67 Ferraris in Paris 2014
Paris sees a possible pause

The Paris auctions saw some records for big Ferraris, but the average Ferrari results were lukewarm. Does this presage a fall, or is it just that quality Ferraris are hard to come by for the auction houses?
