The Rich enjoy living at country clubs where they have their own golf course. This scene is from the Saticoy Country Club's annual car show on their lawn, located a little inland from the Pacific Ocean in Ventura County, California. It is open to the public so I got to wear my shorts, Hawaiian shirt and straw hat and stroll like the wealthy.
I saw more Ferraris in one place than any where else before. The 4 red autos on the left are Ferraris. And on the right side the second car, white, is the first produced Chevrolet Corvette.
The show also had numerous Jaguars, with 3 Jag XKEs one of my favorites.
And dumb me. I sold my 67 MGB over a decade ago, otherwise I could have my car on the lawn.

Toys for grown-up's, Ray, all in one playground...
Nice horizontal format, with good DOF and beautiful cars - the oldie's are on right while the modern cars on right. Most new models are in red, I always knew black and baige are the rich and famous favorit colors.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

All these ferraris made me smile, just imagining somebody on the way in their own red Italian special thinking how impressed everybody would be to see their unique car, then get there and see a whole row of them :). Is that the male equivalent of getting to a party and seeing somebody wearing the same dress? I can safely say I have not seen this kind of sight before, one Ferrari is a rarity, never mind four.
Gear angle to shoot this from too, the line through the centre invites the eye in to explore every single car. Th one in the bottom right is like something from a bond film! Vy cool, thanks for sharing.
All the best

it`s easy to see the attraction,with so many high class cars this is no regular gathering of petrol heads!
A fine range of vehicles to peruse and enjoy in a very suitable panoramic format.
All the best Les.

These antique cars add up worth millions and millions. They are parking at very scenic place. I like the palm trees, very California.

ooh...look at all those Ferrari's on the left! sweet.
Personally, i enjoy the car shows on grass MUCH more than car shows held in parking lots - there's just something more elegant and photogenic about it.
love looking at all these cars.
but what the heck is that one on the far right? the silver car???

Wow! That's a lot of Ferraris! Seen a few of them in Las Vegas but I'm not really taken by the car even if I can afford them. Good capture with good details. Well done, tfs.
