My son checking out a Mangusta

While we were at Concorso Italiano, I wanted to show my son the weird engine doors on the Mangusta. At the same time, a photographer for Sports Car Digest was shooting the car. I found the article and bought the photo from her.

Indian guy from Malaysia sells Chinese food in Singapore
