Rev Your Imported Engine

Over the past few years, the Italian culture has garnered lots of attention, not always so positive. First, we were graced with The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and now just about everyone seems to talk about Snooki as if she's a disdained yet household name. At least there's still hope for today's Italian heritage with Grapevine's 8th Annual ItalianCarFest. Whether you're a fan of classic Italian Lamborghinis or just simply like to wine and dine, this festival is just for you. This year's festival will feature an 850 Spider and a customized early 124 Spider. And of course, don't forget to check out three spectacular Lamborghini Diablos. The festival lasts from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Nash Farm, 626 Ball St. Admission and parking are both free. For more information, call 214-668-2382, or visit italiancarfest.org.
Sat., Sept. 10, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., 2011
