Cast Iron Ferarri Garage Plaque/Auto Sign

Here is an example of one of our popular cast iron auto signs. Given the exotic nature of Ferrari's cars and it's place at the pinnacle of the supercar industry, this garage plaque is always among our most sought after items. 

Although we are a cast iron products wholesaler first and foremost, we always like to delve into the stories behond the products that we sell. We also stock a range of advertising memorabilia too, and the stories behind the logos used, the imagery, the campaigns, can be absolutely fascinating. 

The Ferarri logo is a good example of this. The famous prancing horse logo that Ferarri uses is actually said to be inspired by an Italian WW1 fighter pilot, Count Francesco Barraca. He had a horse painted on the side of his fighter jet. Five years after Count Francesco died during service, Enzo Ferarri met his mother after a race in Savio, Eavenna. She told Enzo to display the same horse on the side of his racing cars, as it would bring him luck. And that is how the famous Ferrari logo was born. 

This cast iron Ferrari garage plaque is only one of many auto signs that we carry in stock. You can find more details, and see our current range, at our vintage auto and garage sign section on our website.
