    The fifth and sixth photos down are of one of the few non-Italian cars there: a Ford GT! (And not one of the new ones!)

    There appears to be a 550 Maranello in the background of the first and second pictures on the left right next to the Maserati.

    Ferrari0324: the two cars you mentioned were on display from Ferrari/Maserati of Atlanta. The Maranello was actually a pre-owned 575 selling for about $199,000.

    Michael FVM: you are correct! When I saw that, I said "It makes the engine in my 328 look like a lawnmower motor by comparison!" And here's the car:

    A couple of notes (and a question) on these last photos:

    The first photo is of a carburetted 308 engine with aftermarket air filtration.

    The third photo is of something called an "Italia". Can anyone provide info on this car?

    The seventh photo is of an Iso Rivolta S4, an Italian sedan powered by a Corvette engine!

    Jim, the Italia was a somewhat rare car (less than 1000 built). I beleive they were made of fiberglass, and they used American V8s, mostly from Ford. Built from 1967 to 1972, they are sometimes reffered to as Griffith 600s, as Intermeccanica somehow was invloved with Jack Griffith after he built the TVR Griffth 200 and 400 series.

    What is the blue/purple colored car that is the 3rd pic in the first group of photos? It is the only one that I don't recognize.

    That is a Lamborghini Urraco, which dates from the mid '70s. Nice car!
