Excerpt from newly inaugurated Hertfordshire Ferrari newsletter:

Finally, talking of events, the Motor Show is at the NEC shortly. Tony Willis has said that, whilst Ferrari UK will not have a stand there this
year there will be an Enzo on display. This will be on a specially built stand from the SMMT (Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders) and Tony will be on the stand for the first couple of days.

That is excellent news Kev.

Thanks for letting us know.

In light of this news I think I'll have to attend.

Make sure its a real one though...

There was an excellent exhibit of avant garde italian car design at the Armory in Manhattan this last month which had an array of italian magnificence from the last 100 years. The piece de resistance was the Enzo, or at least it would have been if it wasn't a wooden mock-up (fully painted) sitting on real wheels. Shame really as there were some truly beautiful machines on display....

Saw several at the factory a few weeks ago, in various stages of completion so would expect something better than a mock up. Someone on the tour said that the comleted ones were 'test'cars not intended for customers. And I can't see Tony Willis setting himself up to spend two days alongside a clay mock up. Phone callto ferrari UK should sort it.

I believe an Enzo will be displayed at the NEC Motor show. It will mean queing for hours just to get a quick peek at the bloody thing - but at least I'll get to see one.


So I was right after all

Don't think so Jay; Autosport in Jan or Classic & Sports more my thing. Have a good time if you're going!

Kev:
Just thought I'd ask and see if you fancied catching up. Not to worry.

The only problem with the NEC motorshow is all the souvenir bag carrying kids that get in the way

Still, it won't be long before my nipper is being dragged along (hopefully not kicking and screaming).

So what are the Autosport & Classic show all about then??? Anything interesting.
