August 8th, 2010 was this years “Tutto Italiano” (Italian Car Day) at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum.
And after having our FIAT held hostage by our mechanic for two months, my father and I were pretty excited to clean it up and park it between some other showpieces.
Other highlights of the field included Alfa Romeo GTVs, a Ferrari 512BB, and some very cool vintage motorcycles.
Naturally we bumped into our mechanic Nino, who was decked-out in Ferrari regalia. He had ridden his Vespa to the show all the way from Gloucester… following his friend in a Ferrari Testarossa. Like, for real.
If you didn’t make it out to Brookline this year, get your s**t together, gas up your Vespa and get that out there for 2011.
As usual, there was a Ferrari on a lift… so we could see the glorious underbody. Smoother than a baby’s butt.
Even the visitor parking lot was stacked with exotics… museum staff had another impromptu car show on their hands.
