The Stallion 

The Ferrari's engine doesn't hum or purr or make any of the sounds generally associated with high-performance automobiles. It growls, snarls, and roars. What else would you expect from the Italian classic? After all, Ferrari was involved in the business of racing cars for 20 years before the company turned its attentions to the development of street-legal vehicles.

On Saturday, October 11th, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Harrah's Casino and Habitat for Humanity are teaming up for "Forza Ferrari! 308s in '08," a celebration of what has been described as the most beautiful sports cars ever made.

What makes every variation of the Ferrari 308 so special? Maybe it's the tube-frame platform and the double wishbone independent suspension. Perhaps it's the 3.0 liter V-8 engine that crams 250-hp under the hood. It could be the sleek, space-age design or the fact that, in spite of his oversized mustache and Hawaiian shirts, Tom Selleck still looked good driving a targa-topped GTS on his long-running television show Magnum P.I.

Ferrari owners from around the country are invited to drive (at safe speeds, of course) to Tunica this weekend to raise money for a good cause while paying tribute to an iconic vehicle.

"Forza Ferrari! 308s in '08," Satruday, October 11th, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Harrah's Tunica. Admission: $10 adults,

$5 children. All proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity.
