We were in Newport, RI when this guy drove up in his Ferrari, got out, left the car running, and went into a store to buy some cigars. Our great-nephew, Ashby, is into NASCAR at the moment so I asked him if he'd like to take some pictures of the car. The Ferrari certainly did draw a crowd which dissipated by the time the guy came back. Ashby told him he had a very nice car and the guy let him sit in it and have his picture taken. It made his day.
