    Very excited about the upcoming Cavallino Classic in January. They have announced that the show will honor and celebrate three great models:

    - SWB California
    - 328
    - F50

    Certainly, all very pivotal models in Ferrari's history. Should be an amazing few days, as usual.

    Also can't wait to see all the 250 GTE 2+2's that show as the featured model. Should be a spectacular turnout.

    All the great concours have gotten up there, so I guess it's par for the course...the last Cavallino I went to was in 03 I believe, walk-up admission to the concours was $25 or something like that.

    It’s the finest Ferrari concours in the world. If you’re a Ferrari fan it’s well worth the price for admission. There is no single gathering quit like it. It brings some of the finest Ferrari in the world from all classes in one place. It’s fabulous.

    Gotta miss it this year, quite upset given the GTE focus.
    Praying for better weather for you guys in 2020.
    Accommodation wise I prefer the 4 Seasons up the road to the Breakers.

    Fantastic. Right near where I live. Thanks for sharing. I suppose there couldn’t be enough gatherings like that.

    I agree that it is a fabulous event, and one that any big Ferrari fan should attend at least once. I went for four or five years, but after a few visits it starts to seem basically the same every year. I think my favorite year was 2008 or so (the old TR was the highlighted model). It seems absurd that they will give you one 7.8 ounce bottled water if you have lunch there, extras were $5 per last time I went. It is like if Mastro's steakhouse wanted to charge me $12 if I asked for a second pat of butter for the bread... I mean, make it fabulous, charge through the roof, but give the customer a great experience without the nickel and dime mentality. Parking for $50? Fuggedaboutit!

    :D

    I understand your point, but much of what you’re referring to is the Breakers and not the show itself.

    Always a great event!!! Even with some rain the best of the best come out.

    I do wish it was the 308 instead of the 328 though.

    A fantastic show. I always like seeing all the cars on the track on Friday. But be aware if you plan to track your car. There will be different skill levels on the track.

    Nothing against the 328, but every time I attended there were plenty of them there. So, seems the same.

    However, seeing a bunch of F50s would be a sight for sure.

    The great thing about Cavallino is the incredible portfolio of cars that show. If one isn't a fan of the 328 (or other models) they certainly don't need to spend much time looking at them. Certainly, of course, F50's are much rarer, so I'm extremely hopeful that many will show. I don't think anyone would argue that the real gems of Cavallino are the ultra exclusive cars from the 50's and 60's.

    As a 328 GTB owner and Cavallino participant/presenter, I have made an interesting observation lately which caught me by surprise. Many younger attendees would come up to me and have never seen a real 328 before. I guess this is showing my age now, but I thought it was interesting how few anyone actually sees out in public (as well as Boxers, TR's, Daytonas, etc.). While maybe a much more "common" Ferrari, anything 20+ years is a very unusual thing for most people to come by.

    I'm glad they are showcasing one of the supercars. I think it's very important to cultivate new attendees at the show, and the reality is that many younger people have much more passion for the supercars (and other newer Ferraris) than they do for the vintage class. For the health of the show, there should be plenty for everyone to enjoy.

    It is expensive but everyone that is interested in Ferrari should go at least once, you see cars you have most likely never heard of and they have the best of the best

    Agreed. No question, there are some fantastic Ferrari concours, shows, gatherings, but Cavallino is on another level. Yes, some years may be better than others, but it consistently delivers really exceptional examples. As ronc52 said, they have the best of the best, many of which are the most exclusive Ferrari’s in the world. And, it’s all Ferrari, which is special.

    Have you been before? If not, you’ll quickly see that this is on a totally different level. Also, looks like you have an impressive collection. You may also want to consider presenting one or more of your cars. It’s really a special experience.

    The ticket price for Cavallino is still about a fifth to a quarter of what a Quail ticket costs. Is Quail really 4 to 5 times better? I don't think so, especially if you are a Ferrari person.

    Agreed. The Quail is a great event, but it’s really more of a lifestyle gathering of both cars, food and fashion. There is no serious judging (aside from exhibitors voting casually within their class). Still, great show. Cavallino, on the other hand, is a serious gathering of only the best cars, and high level collectors and enthusiasts.

    Everybody can attend the FCA Nationals and it doesn't cost anything! This year in November in Scottsdale.
    PS: This year Concorso Italiano in Seaside/MRY wants US$ 510 for a ticket with VIP parking…………. These guys are crazy.

    I would agree, that’s crazy. Concorso Italiano is a nice show, but I wouldn’t call it a premiere event by any means. It’s an enthusiasts gathering of lots of cars in a variety of conditions. There are a few great cars mixed in but not many. That price tag is insane.
