True Italian style rolls into Laguna Seca.

Emile Dell'Aquila peaks into the engine of his shiny black and silver 1975 Maserati Bora, which he explains can comfortably cruise at 125 m.p.h.
"This car just makes me smile," he says with a grin. "The timeless look and fuctional design in great."
Dell'Aquila has a second Maserati that one Best in Show at last year's Italiano at the Marina Airport. This year his car wasn't judged.
On the other side of style, Paul Gommel of Walnut Creek tells me about the green 1973 Alfa GTV 3000 that has been in his family for over 30 years.
"It's a beautiful thing," says Gommel. "(Alfa's) are in a class of their own."
Car enthusiastics came—and saw—in all ages. Cameras snapped away at Ferraris, Lambos and plenty of Alfas under a clear blue sky at Laguna Seca Golf Ranch, where the annual Car Week event will also be held in 2010.
