As some of you may know, I am a huge car freak. I love high end sports cars. Ferrari is my favorite exotic car marque of all. I even have the tattoo to prove it! Whenever there is a car show that may have high end sports cars in the area, I grab the camera and head off to get some pictures and see some works of art.
Two summers ago, the Saratoga Automobile Museum hosted the Fall Ferrari Festival on their grounds. The weather was not ideal for Ferraris, so i did not expect a great turnout. It was a gloomy, overcast day in the Saratoga area. The rain was threatening to dampen our spirits, and our souls. A few brave souls came out despite the showers and showed us their amazing automobiles. All in all, I would say there were about 10 Ferraris that made an appearance. Mostly F430s and 360s, but a few older cars came as well. A special treat was the Ferrari SuperAmerica. I hadn’t seen one of these in person, so I was quite happy.
There was even a Ferrari Testarossa there. In Italian, Testarossa means ‘Red Head’. In Ferrari’s case, it refers to the red-painted cam covers on the engine. As I wandered around the show, taking in all of the sights and got this shot with an F430 in the foreground and a Testarossa in the background. Both of them are shown in front of the Saratoga Auto Museum.
It may have been raining that day, but in my mind it was beautiful out. Any day that you get to spend in the presence of Ferraris is a great day in my book. Here are a couple more I took that day. Enjoy!
See ya soon!
