2013 Tutto Italiano at Larz Anderson Museum

2013 Tutto Italiano italian car day

Jay, before he ditched us sold out advanced his professional automotive writing career by joining another sell-out respected journalist of this institution, Blake Z. Rong, at AutoWeek, and I have covered the Lawn Events at the Larz Anderson Museum in Brookline, MA extensively over the years. Wow, that was a long sentence. Anyway, if you’re clueless about these shows, use the search function on the right. Otherwise enjoy the pictures after the jump. There were Fiats, Alfas, and Lancias. There are also late model Ferraris, Lambos, and Maseratis, but seriously… do any of us really care about those?

I guess this guy missed the Volkswagen Day. It’s some special edition of the Pheaton and it’s owner by a Boston University student, according to my sources. It was dirty and it had chipped lip spoiler. I guess it’s used daily, which is good but I guess it’s not too well cared for, which is a shame. There’s a fine line between proper use and abuse.

The owner of this Spyker must have been equally confused about the theme of the day. Gorgeous interior.

Some German guy’s daily beater.

Now, for the good stuff, the old cars, click and see the whole gallery below.

    Yep, I do care.

    Hey, Bugatti sounds Italian, anyway.

      Ettore Bugatti was Italian and the Bugatti factory was in Campogalliano (Modena) till 1995. It's by all means an Italian Company that got into financial troubles and was bought by the Germans because of its Italian allurement.

        Pish-Posh! All the best Bugattis were built at Molsheim, France.

          Molsheim was part of Germany when Ettore Bugatti built his factory there. The area was later ceded to France only as a consequence of the First World War, so some of the best Bugattis are, in fact, German.

            The phrase "ceded to France" just seems so unlikely (any time in the 1900s) that I googled it, and the first result (even though there are a few search suggestions) was "ceded BY France" and my world felt normal again (I keed, I keed.)

      Few years ago they had amazing looking product professionals in what can be described as tank-top shirts two sizes too small.
      Not there this year. Damn economy!

    It's like sitting in a smoking jacket!

    I guess that jeep kinda counts as Italian.

      You went too far!

        K… I take it back.

      I had a GTV6 in college in the late '80s. (the car in the background) A friend had one of these and absolutely loved it. We were major Alfa dorks… 🙂

        To me the most appealing thing about Alfas is the engines.. and the glorious noise they can make. At least up until they ditched the original twincam in the nineties, and the V6 a few years ago. The new ones do absolutely nothing for me.

    Where is the link to all the pictures?!?

    1. Kamil_K Avatar

      Click the last picture.
      Flikr is Yahoo owned and therefore dumb.
      Or it maybe my linking… one of the two.

        Thanks! My heart weeps Rossa Corsa because I was not there.
        Missed the F40/F50/F575 SuperAmerica when I did the Petersen tour in February. Missed Tutto because I had other obligations this year… One of these days…
        The one year I DID make it to Tutto Italiano, I should have built an ark and demanded a refund. Deluge did not even begin to describe the intensity of the rain!

    That Veyron must take the most circuitous routes around town just to avoid ripping the front bumper off entirely on some manhole cover sticking out 7 inches over the pavement.
    I'd imagine its also never actually entered a gas station for the same reason, it must be fueled by a handheld canister like in NASCAR while parked next to a gas station. Either that, or it gasses up on MassPike only, like 20 miles away.
    We easily had the best weather of the last 5 years of this event, very pleased about that.

    I have no time to organize it during this season, but we should think about having a Hooniversal gathering or two at the Larz Anderson Museum lawn events… Not that it would need much organizing… Hmmmmmm…
