FRESH AIR IN JUNE

FRESH AIR IN JUNE

On Thursday afternoon, after a quick lunch with my friend and classic car writer Massimo, just between two usual short afternoon storms, we have been to our restoration workshop to take a look to my latest Triumph TR2 I bought a couple of weeks ago from a Scottish fellow. The air was fresh, but we immediately decided to take the car out of the garage and have a fast road test in the surrounding routes, of course with no hood and side screens. The test has been quite positive, the car was marvelous and the wet June climate after half an hour of summer rain predicted a warm and serene sunset. You can read a whole technical description of this car and something about its history into the “cars for sale” section, but the most important fact is that, after this short and amusing journey, both Massimo and I agree that there’s nothing better than an English convertible sports car in an Italian afternoon of June!

A MARVELOUS MAY
26 May 2016

For quite every gentleman driver and for many vintage car collectors, May is the best period of the year, because the beginning of the season is strongly characterized by three important events, such as the Historic Gran Prix in Monaco, the Mille Miglia and, last but not least, the Villa d’ Este Concourse d’Elegance.  I just had the chance to be in Montecarlo in the week end between May 13th and 15th to attend the auctions of Bonhams, Coys and RM-Sotheby’s and then to spend four days between Brescia, Rome, Parma and Monza to follow the oldest and most important race in the world. Both cases were really exciting and interesting, putting myself in the condition to meet up a lot of connoisseurs and many of my beloved customers, deeply touching their emotions and passion for our world. It has been a fast succession of meetings, debates, and appointments convincing me that this activity is still one of the best jobs in the world!

GENTLEMEN, START YOUR ENGINE!

GENTLEMEN, START YOUR ENGINE!

Starting from today, entries for the 2016 Event are now open at www.1000miglia.it. I wish you to take a careful look to the list of the eligible models, just to put in evidence the new race coefficient of some sports cars of the fifties, now changed and strongly improved. Just for example, with this new regulation, some race cars like the Italian barchettas and our wonderful Lotus Eleven (1,55) can definitely compete with most of the pre-war eligible cars!
