Missing the passenger side sun visor for your Ferrari 225 Sport?  You’re not going to find it here, but you will find vendors selling:

  • books
  • magazines
  • model cars
  • vintage posters

 

at Continental Auto Sports on Saturday, March 23rd.

Ah, nostalgia.  For those who remember, Joe Marchetti started it all those years ago, and I recall running up the stairs at the Como Inn looking for reading material, wading through stacks of seeming chaos. 

People milling about, knots of car conversations everywhere, random snatches of F-1, carburetor talk, everyone welcome to just eavesdrop or join in…

What Joe started, John Weinberger continued, once a year giving up his showroom and service bays to make room for those in search of original car brochures, decals, t-shirts and the like.

Like Punxsutawney Phil minus his shadow, The Art and Literature Expo seems to herald the start of spring and those anxious for warm weather always take advantage of the occasionally sunny March day.

To me the real point of the Art Expo has always been the people; friends you haven’t seen over the winter, or those you’ve lost touch with over the years. 

People milling about, knots of car conversations everywhere, random snatches of F-1, now sports exhaust talk, everyone welcome to just eavesdrop or join in…

Marvelous!

Hope to see you there,

Dave
