The Ferrari/finance/film/homeless group I founded gathers at the Elysée in Westwood Village every Wednesday evening at 7pm. This week we enjoyed a very nice gathering of newcomers and recidivists.
Tom Meade (creator of the famous Thomassima and Nembo Ferraris) and his buddy Steve worked on sketches of a steering wheel that Tom designed for his newest creation. Film director Marion Comer showed us the trailer for 48 Angels, one of her features films. John Murray (who has supplied technology to the top Formula 1 teams including Ferrari) entertained us with the sounds from the new exhaust on his (red) Ferrari Maranello. Jan Bursey (who produces speed-related television programs) talked about an Alfa Romeo that she has owned forever and explained how she learned to roll down the window on a Pontiac Fiero. Steve Goldfield showed up in a Maserati decaled for the Gumball Rally and Wesley Harris was astounded by Joav's reaction to the iPhone (more on that later). We lost count of how many fire engines were racing past--a fire was threatening the Getty Museum--each time in a different direction!
