  • non-S2K: Italian cars at Oakbrook (29 June)

    For those who missed the Oak Street event, and want to see more Italian Belle Machine D'Italias (am sure there will be a fair share of risotto-mobiles too )... mostly Ferraris, Lambos, Maseratis, Alfas. OLD and New.

    At Oakbrook Polo Club on Sunday, June 29...
    event signup here - http://www.fcacentralstates.org/oakbrookreg1.pdf

    Most folks will be staging their cars on Saturday afternoon.

    I'll be with these folks -- 1 Urraco and 1 Countach (not in picture).

      Not sure WHAT I'll be driving, or if I need to get out there earlier to help with late roll-in and display prep.

      Directions and maps here --> http://www.chicagopolo.com/map.htm

      The Oak Brook Polo Grounds are located in a Residential area.
      The main entrance is on Oak Brook Road (31st Street), just west of York Road.

                    Ferrari visit pix here -- http://public.fotki.com/nsx1164/cars...rari_visit_--/

                    Most pix are of F-1 cars and contemporary cars.
                    LOTS more footage of the older models, which I'll upload later as I have time.

                    NOTE: factory tours (Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagani, etc -- even Honda in Takanezawa/Tochigi) are pretty restrictive on photography
