Usually, winter in Florida is a perfect atmosphere for an Italian car show. But when we arrived at The Breakers, the skies were foreboding. This year marks the 28th annual Cavallino Classic, one of the world’s largest Ferrari gatherings. Fans sporting their Scuderia Shields came from around the world, so join us for a 2019 Cavallino Classic Recap.

This year’s theme was the 60th Anniversary of the 250 GT SWB. Without a doubt the Ferrari 250 is among the world’s most coveted cars, so it was nice to see these siblings back together after six decades. Even though most cars were covered throughout the weekend, it was nice to see an equal mix of race and street cars from each era.

One of the most awe-inspiring machines was David Lee’s 1972 Dino Monza 3.6 Evo, as it represents classic style with modern power. Attendance was steady, but it would have been better without the dismal damp conditions. Because the 288 GTO and the F40 were designed to race, they weren’t scared away. It was also nice to see Ferrari’s latest 488 GTB compared to Berlinettas of the past.
