2011/259: Italian Car Fest, Part 1
I happened to watch the news at Noon one day and heard about the Italian Car Fest in Grapevine TX on September 10, 2011. It didn’t take much to talk Greg into it, and we didn’t have any other plans yet, so why not, right? We didn’t tell the girls that we were going to a car show, because we didn’t want to listen to the whining all the way there, so I just told them we were going to an “Italian Fest”. They did have some food there (Italian Sausages and meatballs, and they were supposed to have gelato, too, but I think it was just too hot out, because we didn’t see any sign of it).
It would have been nice to have Cameron with us. Not Nick, because every non-American made car is a foreign pos to him. And my dad! He would have loved it! One of my favorite memories of my dad is going to the “100 Years Automobile” Show in Stuttgart, Germany, back in 1986. Just him and me. Must have gotten the car bug (along with the photography bug) from him 😉 He used to work for Daimler Benz in Untertürkheim as an engineer (he designed the rear axle) from 1970 until he passed away in 1992.
Anyway…. the pictures…..
2010 Ferrari 458 Italia
1996 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster
Don’t you wish you could drive one of these home?
(Can you believe I was a little more organized this time and actually know what cars they are?!)
