According to Marv Landon, Special Events Chair for the FCA Southwest Region, while this year's program recognizes the amazing legacy of the 250 GTO, many other historical Ferrari 'pieces of art' will be showcased as well. 'The initial registration response has been overwhelming, with owners' vehicles ranging from a 1951 212 Export Vignale Berlinetta and a 1955 250 Europa GT Coupé to many gems from the 1960s.' Landon noted that many of these particular vehicles have been shown at worldwide venues including the Villa d'Este as well as participating in recent Mille Miglia events.

As a bonus, the Italian marque won Enzo Ferrari's favorite race, the open road Mille Miglia, a brutal 1000 mile high speed lap of the Italian peninsula.
