  • Concours D'Elegance Ferrari 458

    The Concours D'Elegance is South Florida's premier exotic car show. I had a chance this weekend to take in some sun and really hot automobiles at the Boca Raton Resort and Club and shoot photos of some of my favorites.

    Here we have a Ferrari 458. Mid-engined, 4.5 liter V8.

  • Merak

    That's a Merak, not a Bora. Easy to confuse, since they're nearly identical from the front. But in the rear, the Bora had a "hatchback" style rear window, whereas the Merak had those unusual flying butresses with the hollow centers.

    The Bora is also much faster, sporting a V8 to the Merak's v6, and much more expensive as a result. All in all, though, I prefer the look of the Merak. It's a fun little sportscar with lovely lines.
  • Image 35 is a 1962 Corvette with fuel injection

    Probably an extremely rare car - given the rarity of the original colour, the fact it's fuel injected, and the dog dish hubcaps (very cheap) - many pictures in the Google search I did show '62s coming with wheel covers that imitate knock-off wheels.

    What a 'dorko', hey Jason.....can you round me up some web picks of planes.....ya know....just sit in front of your video monitor and Google some pics....like you did for this ZDNET blog.
  • These Cars are 10+ days faster than me.

    I'm in Costa Rica and we didn't spring forward. Maybe when Florida sprung forward it was turbocharged and somehow the Concourse you attended is 10 + days from now on the 24th, 25th, 28th, 27th, but who's counting?

    Hmm, I figure since I'm going to be 80 on the 6th of May, you are in a hurry to celebrate my birthday. But, at my age, the longer I prolong the checkered flag the more time remains to ruminate over the enlightened thoughts of Jason Perlow, who redefined Future Shock with a blink of his eye.

    Jason, please do not purloin my remaining time to peruse your pleasant poignancies.

    Thank you!
