    There will be a display of his cars March 6 - July 3 at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Their site might have some pictures, or you can go one up and check it out next month.

    I think there was an issue of Rosso Ferrari that featured the collection. Mine's in storage, so I can't help.

    It appears it may be a little tight in that garage to fit 10 cars?

    There are actually five such garages, a total of about 90 cars, not only Ferraris of course.

    Here is more:

    These pics were too good to leave in the Showroom. I had to copy the thread to here so we could share with all of our Vintage friends.

    for those that can make it to boston the museum of fine arts will be displaying the car collection of ralph lauren....including the 1938 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic Coupe that Paul russell did.

    Count Trossi” Mercedes-Benz SSK from 1930, with its flamboyant swept-back fenders and tapered tail. Complementing these pre-war beauties are sleek racers from the 1950s and ’60s, including an example of the legendary Jaguar XKD; a sporty Porsche 550 Spyder; and famed models from the house of Ferrari, such as the 250 Testa Rossa and the GTO

    I understand that 15 cars of the RL collection will be displayed at the Boston Fine Arts Museum. He owns about 90+. Octane magazine, latest issue, has a nice presentation of the cars on display. February 25, 2005, a special inauguration with RL himself will be held for invited guests only.
