Seen a Ferrari 365 P?

In Nashville you expect country music, barbecue and cold beer.  What you don’t expect is a display of Italian automobiles very seldom seen outside of museums.  Alfa Romeo, Bizzarrini, Ducati, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lancia and Maserati. With the ultra-rare Alfa Romeo BAT models 5, 7 and 9 from the 1950s and a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO.

At the First Center for Visual Arts, sits a dark blue Ferrari 250 GTO, and to my jaded eye, that was the least exciting car in the display.

About 1hr and 20 min by plane, get a cheap coach ticket (Frontier $75/one way) and go see cars you are never likely to see again.

Bellissima! The Italian Automotive Renaissance, runs through October 9th.
