Italian Cars in Little Italy
A while ago, I complained that nothing ever happened in Little Italy but some pasta-eating.
I was wrong.
When I arrived at the yoga studio located in the heart of Little Italy on Friday, I realized that it was the “Settimana Italiana di Ottawa”, the Italian week. I came back the next day to check it out, and was treated to a nice display of Italian cars.
The last car show I stumbled upon was the classic American cars in Ogdensburg, U.S. I still don’t know anything about cars, American or Italian, but I must admit the sound of the engine starting before the race was quite exciting and unique.
Despite the severe winter conditions half of the year, I spot quite a lot of sports car on the road in Ontario, mostly nice convertibles and the occasional race car. I don’t understand it (give me a Beetle and I’m happy!) but hey, to each his own. Meanwhile, it was cool to see so many Ferrari on the tiny Preston Street parking lot, and a lot of guys seemed to be appropriately impressed.
