    Palm Beach in Florida is every year a fantastic place to start the saison. Cavallino Classic 28 takes place from 23.-26. this month.

    This year I am bringing and showing the "little" Ferrari 348 GTC LM, a car with big history in fantastic condition. Will do the track at Palm Beach Raceway on Thursday/Friday and the big Concours on Saturday infront the Brakers Hotel.

    A big Adventure for the car, the trip from Austria, via Rotterdam to NY and then to Florida.

    I would like to take you on the journey and will post and share the stations and experiences.

    Have fun and enjoy with me the trip of the Ferrari 348 GTC LM

    It was great to be present to see a 348 get such an important special award at a major show. It was not lost on the entire room when the vote was taken how important it was when the hands were raised.

    Congratulations. It is a great car and thank you for bringing it.

    For those that do not know him, the judge in the cheap plastic rain gear with no hat is author Keith Bluemel.

    The other 2 are very respected within the vintage Ferrari community but I will allow them their anonymity. Knowing Keith I don't think he minds.

    You did well too. The Preservation Award is a very significant award.

    People really need to understand that for a group of judges, very heavily populated by vintage Ferrari experts to unanimously select this car after being entered into consideration by one of the most respected early Ferrari race car historians was a real sea change. Especially at an event that had a number of great early race cars present. It was great to be present to see it happen.

    It was the right car at the right time.

    Thanks, Brian. I couldn’t be happier. Both the 328 and 355 came away strong.

    As a huge fan of the 348, it's the one Ferrari that's a must see for me. But there was no way I could have been there this year. :(
