Sure, we all have the Internet, but sometimes you have to actually go places, and the world is lousy with car-related Meccas. Where does every gearhead need to go before they die?
Having just read A.J. Baime's Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans, I have to give this one to Ristorante Cavallino in Maranello, italy. Enzo Ferrari created the place so he'd have somewhere nearby the company's headquarters to eat and conduct business. Naturally, every major Ferrari driver from Surtees to Amon to Andretti to Von Trips started their Scuderia racing careers there. Sure it's touristy — and a merchandising mecca — but the historical atmospherics are undeniable.
