It's a truly beautiful machine, looks much more like a Bertone styling 
concept car than an actual driver.  The problem is finding a way to 
photograph it in a bare static display in a totally non-aesthetic 
settingwithout just repeating fifteen other guys' shots....

I don't think I found that shot, but I like the car so I had to put 
SOMETHING in the set.  (Yeah, I play favorites.  There were a bunch of truly 
magnificent cars in the show that I appreciated without liking...  so they 
got skipped over.  125 cars isn't a really BIG show but it does make for an 
excessively large gallery.)
