Classic Cars

Something new for all you car lovers.

And if you are not a car lover...?

Santacon is right around the corner.

This ai a 1958 Ferrari, 250 Testa Rossa.

In all, 34 250 Testa Rossas were built, from 1956 through 1961. The phrase "Testa Rossa" means "redhead." The most well known, the 250TR, was produced from 1957 to 1958; only 2 factory cars and 19 customer cars were built. After the 250 GTO, the 250 Testa Rossa is the second most valuable Ferrari model, often valued at more than US$ 8,000,000. A 1957 250 Testa Rossa sold on May 17, 2009 for $12,100,000, a new world record price for a car. (Wikipedia).

Spotted at the Marin Sonoma Concours d' Elegance in San Rafael, California.

An excellent car, it just oozes power and speed ( Ellie used the word ooze on my photoblog and I was looking for a reason to use it elsewhere, you drew the short straw), looks like a Ferrari car park as well.
John Eagle: I guess we could say this is the Ferrari Ooze model. Even though this car as built 50 years ago it looks like it can kick ass.

Che bella macchina, forza la rossa
John Eagle: For $12 million (more or less) it had better be a force. smile Cool looking either way.
