    Father's day Exoctic Car Show in Calgary

    Well;

    Another Father's Day exotic car show has come and gone in Calgary. The usual a few 355's, a bunch of 360's spiders and modenas, a couple F40's, 1 street and 1 race, several 308's and 328's, 1 246 Dino, a 550 and several Murciliago's and a few Diablos. A couple Contach's as well. There was also a CAV reproduction GT40 there as well that was very well done.

    This year, however, there was a special prize where the only Enzo in Western Canada was there on display. It was about 2' away and I could have touched it if I wanted my arm broken..... ;D I suspect this is the closest I will ever get to one. They started it a couple times as well while we were there. Very sweet sounding engines these are.

    Honestly, after seeing one in person, I am still not really hot on the car. I have to say that it is a spectacular vehicle in engineering but it just isn't for me in shape. I don't know what it is but it just doesn't do it for me. I know many are true believers and hey, enjoy the pics.

    Anyway, a bunch of pics of the Enzo are below.

    I had other pics as well but someting went wrong with the camera and most came out blurry.

    Cheers
    Don

    Great color for the Enzo....very nice photos - thanks Don

    For what is worth the Enzo doesn't exite me as much as some other exotics either...The shape is too frontal looking and the rear is too wide...I prefer the Carrera GT myself and I think the new Maserati supercar is hotter looking than the Enzo (although the have similar mechanicals)....

    thanks for sharing

    the MC12 is a rebodied enzo with a slightly detuned engine and different race gearing, so its faster on the track. same car though, made by ferrari.

    Don....

    thanks for posting the photo's....

    I have to agree with your reaction to the Enzo. I don't find it an attractive or appealing looking car either. But that's the good thing cars, there is lots of variety for all of us !!

    Re: Father's day Exoctic Car Show in Calgary

    My most favorite Ferrari has always been 288 GTO.

    Having said that, I also really like the 250 GTO and the 308. Believe it or not, the 355 is third/fourth on the list but the panels were available and I was ready to buy at the time.

    I'll finish this one up and then I am looking at the 288 GTO panels you can still get underground in a few places and will build that out. I'll drive and enjoy the 355 immensely while building the 288....

    In the show last weekend, I think the 360 series is one of the nicer Ferrari's put together as it has beautiful flowing lines and really seems to have it all together. There were a couple F40's there as well but I always found the front lights setup a bit funny where you have the running lights et al. there and then the headlights pop up when needed. Personal tastes again I guess.


    Tevor. Give me a call and we can hook up to swap build stories.

    Cheers
