Yo! Tony!

So were standing on top of the Colosseum in Rome, when my boys looked down and exclaimed, "LOOK! A car show!! Dad! A car show!" to which our tour guide (a woman) and I, both rolled our eyes. She laughed and said something about cars being universal.

Being so far away, the boys couldn't figure out exactly what they were, but being in Italy, surely they must be Lamborghinis or Ferraris... right?

Of course.

So soon we were hearing, "Dad! Dad! Dad! When we leave, can we swing by the car show?!"

And there was great excitement and the angels were singing and so it was so... after we finished our tour of one of most amazing archaelogical sites... we would tour the car show in the parking lot below.

Down we eventually traipsed as the boys quickly made their way... only to find... it was a Fiat car show.

There was a noticeable sigh.

We did not stay...

Enzo Ferrari actually got his start racing and designing for Fiat, and he drove a Fiat all of his life. So, it was *almost* like being at a Ferrari show!

Heh. I like Fiats. Well, the little ones, anyway. They're cute.

Of course, Grau could never fit in one.
