 Little Italy Italian Motorsports Show

August 5, 2006 - Little Italy's Italian Motorsports Show is staged on on 8 blocks in the Little Italy area of San Diego.  They segregated marques by blocking off a full block for each of Detomaso, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Ducati and one block mostly dedicated to Symbolic Motors.

This show was a like a mini Concorso Italiano.  For those of us not able to make it to Monterey this year, it provided an adequate overload of Itialian Beauties.

We had 15 Panteras and one Mangusta.  The weather couldn't have been better.

George takes the point and waves the flag for SDP.

The street and the shade were perfect.  Unfortunately, we were on the farthest block of show.  I'm not sure if all the folks even knew we were here.  Nonetheless, we there were quite a few visitors.

The Ferrari Club was chock-a-block with prancing horses, including this stunning 365 GTB4 Daytona belonging to a friend of Klaus'.  It was signed by Phil Hill, with the caption "Thanks for the ride!"

What better way to celebrate another great day with fellow club members on this festival Italiano... A couple of draws from the tap and lunch at a local watering hole, believe if or not, an English Pub!
