Hi, Serious-

Here are some pages that have pictures of the '04 show:

The last link with pictures taken by the professional photographer for Texas Driver Magazine are especially nice.

Also in the archives of Ferrarichat.com, go to the "Texas" heading and click on 'ItalianCarFest'. The topic runs 5 pages. Most of the pictures are no longer available, however at the bottom of p3 are links to individual pic.s.

Please enjoy!


There will also be artiles about the '04 show in 'Classic Motorsports' magazine and 'Classic & Sports Car' magazine (a UK publication this spring. In addition, look for write ups in most of the national Italian marque-specific publications.
