The fair was held in the area behind the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium and was free to the public. There were food and drink booths exhibited by many of the more popular Italian restaurants with samplings of their best dishes to include; fried calamari, pastas, rack of lamb, pizza, salads, breads, specialty waters and coffees. All of it was great. And yours truly can attest to it as we all were treated by the promoters to generous samplings.
Prior to the event the club was asked to participate in a FOX channel 11 television spot at six in the morning. We wish to thank Ferrari of Beverly Hills and Ferrari North America for bringing out a new F355 Spyder, as well as Tino Mingori with his beautifully prepared fly yellow 275GTB/4 and Shin Takei with his very special 365GTB/4. The three cars were on a live TV spot aired that morning. The club continued to get additional radio coverage throughout the weekend in the form of live interviews.
There are few things that exemplify better the true mystique and excitement created by the Ferrari marque than being at a public exhibition where you can feel the public pulse.
We wish to thank Capretta Communications, Michael Lederman and Ogner Motors as well as all our members who gave their time and brought their much appreciated cars.
