Cars and Coffee is an informal car show held in Irvine and other cities  
early Saturday mornings.  Given the car culture in Southern California,  
and exotic cars are often present.  But when the Ferrari Club  sponsored one 
morning in November, something special was in the making.
A tractor-trailer pulls up early and unloads 5 vehicles, on their way to be 
 delivered to a Mexican collector.  Among them:
A 1952 340 Mexico Spyder originally raced in the Carrera Panamerica.   The 
only spyder, as the other three of the type were closed coupes.

1954 Lancia-Ferrari D-50 rumored to have been driven in practice by Juan  
Manuel Fangio:

1955 Ferrari Testarossa driven in So Cal by Pete Lovely:
_ ( 

Ferrari 312B3 Formula 1 car driven early that season by Niki Lauda:

And not of that group, but gorgeous just the same, a 1955 Ferrari 250  
Europa Berlinetta

Regardless of their color, vintage Ferraris are works of art.  I hope  you 
enjoy this selection.
