    Just got back from the Best of France & Italy Show at Woodley Park. The weather was great, and it was a great turnout! Lots of F-Cars, representing all groups - Rat Pack, FDC, FCA, and FOC. Some of the Ferrari models included the following: 308, 348, 355, 360, Daytona, boxer, mondial, 275 GTB, TR, 550... just to name a few! In the Fiat section, there were lots of great looking spyders... and the Zagatos that were there were beautiful!

    Jay Leno showed up in a vintage Bugatti race car - I don't know the model, but it was very unique! I took a number of pictures...and will post them in a bit.

    Some of the local fchatters that were there included: Steve S, Henry C, Dom V, myself...and others. I had a great time hanging out - definitely something I'll be sure to attend again next year! :D

    another shot of the cars...

    It was a fun event - lots of cool cars and fun memorabilia to shop for in the swap meet section.

    So, anyone get to bump shoulders with Jay Leno? :)

    I didn't attend the show, but over the summer, got a nice private tour of his collection. He insisted I jump into his McLaren.

    Haha! When I saw that picture (the McLaren) I couldn't help but imagine some passengers sitting in those side seats holding on for dear life and crapping their pants as they watch the driver in the middle next to them take that demon to the next level. Oh man!

    Very cool that you got to sit in that. I have seen almost every "supercar" I can think of, but have never seen the F1. I want to see one so badly.
