1968 Ferrari 330 GTS

1968 Ferrari 330 GTS

We are just a couple of weeks away from Monterey Car Week. The time when automotive enthusiasts migrate to automotive Mecca and check out some beautiful machines. For many it is about looking at their dream cars, but for some it can turn into a shopping trip.

There are quite a few classic and exotic vehicles that hit various auction blocks over the week. While the majority of cars at most auctions will be American muscle cars or hot rods, there are also some premium cars available. One of our favorite performance nameplates is Ferrari and it will have a good presence during the week.

For collectors looking to add a Ferrari or two to their garage Mecum Auction’s annual Daytime Auction has a few cars that will stand out. Among them are some vintage ’60s cars wearing the prancing horse, an ’80s Ferrari that was on the Miami Vice TV show and newer machines like a 458 Italia.
