    Saw these two yesterday at Misselwood. Pics are mine.

    This 250GT California LWB #0910 was more aggressive than I had expected. Edgy and elegant.

    I didn't get the # on the SWB, but I imagine it's as well known as the California. Is the snout on it a little more downturned than usual? I don't know much about these cars, and this is the first one I've seen in person -- so I'm probably wrong.

    What is Misselwood?

    I used to dislike the LWB california, now i think i prefer them to the SWB. They are so elegant.

    If you have more pics of them or any other cars from that event, please share, looks like it was a high quality turnout. Thanks!

    Car show at Endicott College in Beverly, MA:

    Misselwood Concours d'Elegance

    As of today, the pics on that site are still from the 2018 show.

    I have more pics. I'll try to get them up later.

    These were the only vintage Ferraris I saw.

    A typo I'm sure. The LWB 250 GT California is #0919.

    Ugh. Looks like I fat-fingered the title, too:

    The SWB is (95% sure) #2845GT, the ex Scuderia Serenissima/ Count Volpi Comp/61.

    Definitely not 2845GT or a Comp. 61 car. It has the body features of an early SWB. Biggest clue is the way the line of the top of the side window slopes down towards the rear and it has no quarter light side windows, which a Comp. 61 car would have.

    That leaves the question why a car claims the registration and the team stickers of another car??? I doubt Paul Russell brought a replica...
