  1. Disappointingly there was no photo coverage of the event on Sunday at Mar-a-Lago. As one who attended all the Cavallino events, I think this coverage is partial and incomplete in my opinion.

  2. Fantastic cars, stunningly portrayed by an outstanding excellent photographer. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy these.

  3. On Page 4 and 9, the PreWar Alfa (with headlights) is called out as Alfa P3 #5005 but in reality that is an Alfa Romeo Monza. The other Alfa P3 photos are correct. Also, great photo on page 4 of the Ferrari 375 MM Scaglietti with the owner standing next to it. Nice timing.
