I'd love to see a collection of Cuban cars .... talk about an automotive museum.

Some stuff spotted in Palm Springs this holiday weekend. I uploaded an album of mid century modern homes if you are interested as well:

Cool galleries! Nothing illustrates Ferraris fall from grace better than putting the FF into that context.
I'd love to see a less garish one again, but at the time being the Fezza has to be the extention of a fitness club not a gentlemens lounge.

Fall from grace? I love the FF, personally. It's substantially better than the direction Porsche has gone with the Cayenne and Panamera.

At least it's not a four door.

I think I know why I don't like Ferraris, Lambos, etc today. They no longer look bespoke. That XKE looks made in a barn, the Ferraris look like they rented the Chevy factory for a weekend and used their own tooling.

I know I'm an oddball, but I'd pay $200k for the XKE before a new Ferrari.

Since we're talking exotics and super-cars, I think the best of the best was the Muira. Look at that stance, those rear shoulders, that swept windshield...mmm. I see so much influence from this car in super-cars, muscle-cars and elegant-exotica that followed for decades. Any car that can make burnt-orange and green-apple look beautiful is a winner. :)

Sorry this has gone off kilter - I haven't actually seen one of these anywhere near my neighborhood and doubt I ever will, but stunning nonetheless!

Just buy a cottage near this guy and your posting will be thread correct, again.

We just bought a house in a slightly different neighborhood, some rides in the new hood, and a dope Ferrari GTS in the parking lot at the airport.

You win a cookie! It's a later vintage, probably 1975 (and modified). I much preferred the earlier model's gas tank profile; much more "Italian".

Scott - loving the Muria p o r n!

Edit no 2: Just saw the original version of "the Italian Job" and there was nice Muria driving scene in the Alps within the first 15 min
