Checked out a cool Ferrari Meet last month at the Petersen Museum in LA, the event was for Enzo Ferrari’s birthday. I’m not really a “Ferrari guy”, but I do appreciate the mark. It’s always weird going to an event for a car you don’t own, like myself going to an NSX meet….Meet starts early as fuck, like seriously early, doors open at 8, I think I woke up around 6:40 to start getting ready to wake up at 7am. It’s at events like this I feel so insignificant as an S2000 driver…only pushes me to work on it more!
Of course being a Ferrari event you can expect to see RED, lots of RED, with some yellow and black thrown into the mix.
It did seem like a majority of the Ferraris were 360s and 430s, perhaps they are dropping in price and are more attainable.

Ferrari Testarossa, this car screams 80s
Ferrari 458 Speciale
I was super excited to see a Ferrari F40 in person. It’s my favorite Ferrari, it has everything I love about Ferrari, the racing hertiage, spartan interior, use of carbon fiber, Twin Turbos, beautiful 80s body lines…….fucking awesome. This must of seemed like a rocketship if you compare it the other cars at the time..
My lovely wife actually bought me a Ferrari F40 Legoset for Christmas. I love the rear iconic round taillights.
My favorite detail on the F40 is the rear louvered rear engine cover. I love how the intercoolers just peaks out.
Beautiful steel manifold
Ass shot! Triple tip mufflers are badass! They didn’t display it, but the entire rear section lifts up, exposing the entire engine compartment….
Hope everyone enjoyed the coverage. Although I’m more of a Japanese car enthusiast personally, it’s nice seeing different cars. SoCal is a crazy place, this was only ONE of the many ferrari events going on that weekend. Most places in the country they are lucky just to have one…. More Japanese car/s2000 content coming soon! thanks for looking
