Una Passione per Sportscars Italiani
Certainly, Kentuckians love a sports car. When NASCAR returns to the Commonwealth later this month for a Sprint Cup Race, the turnout will rival the Kentucky Derby. But there are gear heads here with a taste for Italian. In other words, people like Lexington Businessman Tom Jones collect the Maserati. Jones discussed his decades-old passion with WEKU reporter Charles Compton.
Jones has his 1971 Maserati 49-S-S on display this evening in downtown Lexington on the Centrepointe lawn. In total, a dozen cars, including Ferrari’s and Porsche’s, will be shown. The free event is a preview for next month’s Concourse d’Elegance car show at Keeneland.
