The Cavallino Classic 2019 was held Jan. 23-27 at the Breakers Resort Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida. Celebrating its 28th anniversary, the five-day gathering for Ferrari owners and enthusiasts saw participants and their 400 exotic and classic cars attending from the United States and Europe. Rainy conditions plagued this year’s events, although the shows went on as planned.
