Legendary Car Guy did not receive invitation to the 2015 Ferrari of Newport Beach Annual Appreciation Dinner. [Feb. 9 – weather beyond miserable everywhere but here: 72 degrees]

200 guests arrived in 80+ Ferrari at Mastro’s Ocean Club off PCH in Newport Beach [temp at 72 degrees with caressing breeze]. Absolutely perfect occasion to take out your Ferrari!
