A Rare Glimpse at Some Rare Cars

On Saturday, March 23rd, Don Weber opened up his private collection for viewing by members of the FCA Southwest Region. This fabulous collection of cars is not opened up very often, so we were indeed privileged to get a glimpse of "Ferraiana" that is Don?s private collection.

The cars are mostly Ferraris, from an F40 to a collection of vintage Indy cars and midgets, and the cars are all displayed "museum" style in Don?s personalized building. Among the cars is a delightful array of model cars and photos of Don?s involvement with racing, with the Ferrari factory, and with Luigi Chinetti, who was a personal friend. There are also posters, racing memorabilia, and framed correspondence with Enzo Ferrari. Of course, the bar is something to behold also!

Don was gracious enough to cater brunch, and the Italian omelettes were the greatest! While we were there, Don had vintage Indy races playing on the VCR! His stories of his relations with the Ferrari factory are legend, as he has purchased many of his Ferraris direct from Maranello (when one was able to do that).

We are most grateful to Don and his caterer for setting up a superb meeting!
