    Here's what I found today, but not computer savvy enough to know how to reach those issuing invitations. Any clues?

    Been in communication with Disney. Trying to see if they are interested in 30-50 Ferraris showing up as well as GT 40's and Cobras for either the premier or a special screening. Im waiting to hear back from them.

    Heard back from Disney. They dont want a parade of Ferraris. Only a 330 P. They might as well be looking for a unicorn. No 330 Ps exist. Only 4-412s exist and 2 are in Europe. I dont think anyone is going to ship one in for a movie ticket. They will have better luck with a replica which is what they must have used for the film.

    I understand that there already was a screening at the Peterson.

    Perhaps they just don't see any benefit or need to bother with additional (outsider) promotional efforts/offers.
    Intended target audience is likely going to see the movie even without it.
    I wonder if I should've had accepted the invite, even without interest nor time to attend.

    Besides, isn't it supposed to be more about Ford than Ferrari...
