OK, sure… one could argue that ALL Ferraris are classic Ferraris – even last year’s models. For the most part, I wouldn’t disagree. But going through my pictures, I realized I had to narrow it down. I have LOTS of pictures of Ferraris. Everything from a 1947 125S Barchetta to a 2015 LaFerrari.
So what to narrow it down to? I started with the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. In 2017, they had a show celebrating 70 years of Ferrari. So these are all from that exhibit.
The easiest first step would have been to keep it to the red ones, but that would have kept out a couple of nice silver 250 GTs.
The oldest ones, of course.
And the racers.
The odd ones.
The simple clean lines for driving on the open road.
And what would a Ferrari post be without the legendary 250 GTO? Yes, this is an authentic one. One of the most expensive cars out there at this point. Last I saw, one sold at auction for around US$38 Million. Dare to dream.
Wonderful! A great series, Paul. My favorite – it should tell you something about me – is the odd one, the ’56 410 Superamerica. That is one exceptional ride!
Your photos really stand out, especially the red ones. I am not a big car fan, for me if they have 4 wheels and can drive from this point to that point, I am good. But there is something about the older “antique/ classic” models of cars that are just so very appealing to me. They have so much character in comparison to cars today. If someone was going to give me a Ferrari I’d pick the one from 1956😉 . If you are ever in Southern Florida, there is a Museum by the name of Elliot, They have the most equisite collection of vintage cars and their system of displaying them is also something to rave about.
