Red Ferrari Testarosa

Classic Ferrari Testarosa on 17 Mile Drive

Parking lots are a pretty good indicator of the type of people you will encounter at a specific location. For instance at the Mickey and Friends parking garage at Disneyland you will find Mini-van's, a plethora of SUV's and various other genres of cars covered with Disney themed stickers. This is a good indication that you are about to enter a place filled with families, large groups of people, kids and younger adults with a more than casual Disney addiction.

The parking lot for the Pebble Beach Concours is a MUCH different collection of automobiles. Of course there is no shortage of the every day vehicles you may find at Disneyland or your local Costco. However, along 17 mile drive in Carmel, California on this Sunday Morning the car's parked in this makeshift yet beautiful parking lot is borderline show quality. Ferraris, Lamborghini's, Porsche's, McLaren's are just as common as the Toyota Camry. While a bit more rare of a sight but not uncommon a Rolls Royce or a Vector may be parked along side a Honda Civic. Car Week in general is THE center of the car universe every year and brings together car enthusiasts from all walks of life and with many different types of cars they consider their "favorite"

For me growing up I gravitated to the Ferrari Testarosa. It was and still is my favorite "exotic" car. This gorgeous example parked a few feet away from my lowly Ford SUV reminded me of the posters I used to have as a kid that I would stare at for hours.
