    It was a beautiful day in lower Manhattan today. Benny Caiola displayed some of his amazing collection in front of Filli Ponte Ristorante for a charity event there. The entire block was closed off, which allowed a nice relaxing atmosphere. I went nuts with my camera for about 90 minutes straight. Enjoy the pix.

    Damn it! I am so pissed I missed this -- and it's 2 seconds from my house!

    How come no one posted that this event was happening today? I know there was a thread on this like 100 years ago, but c'mon -- the EC crew is so last minute!

    Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

    Hot cars, great pics!

    Embarrasingly, I couldn't make it either. (couldn't get a babysitter). Looks awesome. Did you get any chat time with the big man? He's a fun guy to be around. Full of passion and great stories. This past summer my Dad was driving near Modena and said two Paganis blazed past him. Looking up it was my Uncle Ben and Horatio Pagani himself both having a blast with the cars!

    Brandon, there were several flatbeds.

    Bradley, champagne is Grigio Ingrid :)

    Emil - I did ask who wants to come a couple times.

    Benny had sent home the two F50s, F40, and Pagani around 4pm. I was just glad I got the hear the Pagani and F50s running. Simply amazing!

    Not all the cars in the photos are Benny's. I know the 512M and Miura belong to someone else. But this also respresents a mere fraction of what Benny does own including an F40LM, two 333 SPs, Countach, Diablo, CGT, Benz SLR.... basically anyones fantasy garage.

    Benny did tell me his new Pagani is the open top model and he said it is blood red... I asked, "like rosso corsa?"... he replied, "no redder!" :)

    Big man? Im 5'6 and I was eye to eye with him. He ran away from me when I told him Im friends with nephew Ben.. just kidding. He is a really nice guy.

    Not a bad collection. Nice of Ben to show them for charity. Wish I saw the cars in person.

    Its great to see someone who brings his cars out to see the light of day. Hat's off to Tuttu Benny!

    And Greg, you got some great shots. Thanks for taking the time to send them up to the site for us to enjoy.

    BTW, what type of camera are you shooting with?

    I know. But that was a month ago!

    We need an official calendar so that dolts like me can look at a web page and be reminded of stuff that's coming up.

    Hmm...

    Next update I'll cut down the physical size of the page per Hubert's request.

    I just thought the indents & stuff increased readability. There's only so much you can do with VB format codes :(
