Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!! Dust off the grille and polish up your cooking skills because the sun is out and so are the good times. Today we have a special treat and a guest photographer to help celebrate Memorial Day with us. Ritchie Hann, a good friend of LACS, has a selection of photos from a recent Cars & Coffee trip.
So go out there and have a great Holiday weekend with friends and family – go to a car show if you have the chance. In the meantime, enjoy a few beautiful classic and modern cars courtesy of Ritchie and LACS. Cheers! ♦ ♦♦♦ ♦
The Ferrari 348. As some people call it, the black sheep of Ferrari. A lot of critics and Ferrari fanatics were not fond of the car, saying it was slow and uncontrollable at the limit. What really hurt Ferrari when they produced this car, is that Ferrari was going up against a new breed of Japanese sports car – The Honda NSX. During this time period, the Japanese economy was booming and Japanese Automakers were feverishly engineering and introducing new cars to the market. The NSX was a precisely engineered Mid Engine car (like the 348) that produced similar performance figures (and better gas mileage) from it’s V6 engine. The Ferrari 348, many say, was archaic in comparison and felt downright dull.
Even so, we look at one parked on the street and can’t help but pick our jaws up from the ground. In my opinion, the black sheep Ferrari still holds some appeal. It has superb styling and exudes a wonderful sound from the Tipo V8 under the (rear) hood. This one is in great condition and sports nicely fitted aftermarket rims. The TS in the name represents that this model is the Transversale Spider, or basically a targa top. Enjoy the pics.
**Edit – Attached the pics!
Spotted a red Ferrari F430 spider parked outside a very large house in Beverly hills area. It’s not every day you see a Ferarri parked on the street.
I don’t do exotics on this page very often, but I now have a goal to mix up the offerings at LACS. More exotics & more luxury while sticking with the classic and mid-modern vehicles that catch my eye. Enjoy these pics
I missed the end of the month hodgepodge post! In all fairness, I’ve been working many back-to-back 14 hour days and haven’t had the will power to turn on my computer. With my petty excuses aside, here is the February Hodgepodge. More posts on the way!
Here we are at the end of another month, and as per usual, we have our end of the month hodgepodge collection of photos. It has been at least a week since I’ve posted and I have seen so many cool cars in passing without having a chance to photograph them! Here is a sampling of some vehicles that didn’t quite make the cut for a full length post but deserve a shout out. Enjoy!!
