You’ll find them situated somewhere between a cherry vintage Ferrari Testarossa in Scuderia Red Tan traditional colors and a new white Maserati Granturismo or strolling the show talking with other club members, exotic car friends, and family.

If you haven’t found the group, simply ask for Ms. Jeanette Scott of Scotty’s Garage (photo left). She’ll be the cute gal running the registration booth and tent — and is the volunteer auto diva event coordinator for the car show portion of the day’s fund raising activity. Jeanette, owner of the famous Baltimore Lamborghini named “Oro Toro” will know where to find more Italianizzato friends… as we’ll probably be hanging out someplace near her husband, the infamous car show gent “T.W.”, the man, the myth, the legend.

Hope to see you at the car show!

Glimmer and Sparkle and Fun Family Carnivals tickle the fancy of Maserati Lovers in Maryland

Holy BLING,  Batman.

I know this sparkle car is neither Italian or exotic, but it sure dazzles. A diamond-bedazzler crusted Mercedes S Class convertible? Researching auto images that would scream “Carnival”, I found this little gem (pun intended).

Since I genuinely laughed out loud when I saw it, I just to share it. Here’s the photo link and photographer credits where I found the photo on Flickr:

There, participants will meet-up at Sotta Sopra “Cucina Italiana” for a very special tax day treat: DOLLAR PASTA NIGHT.
