Saw some great cars at the historic races at Silverstone in England. I took about 800 pictures today; hope you enjoy the few I have here.

We originally came to the Parma area to see the cheese, prosciutto ham, and balsamic vinegar production. There are two small car manufacturers in the area, so we decided to visit the car places today and have a food day tomorrow. For a car guy today was like a 75 per cent off sale at Macy's for the gals. Every open area around the Ferrari factory had Ferrari Red Roses planted that Nonette really liked. I hope you have as much fun looking at the pictures as I did making them.

|You wouldn't want to see this one in the rear view mirror.|
I don't think the Siena police could have gotten Nonette in the back of this one.
|Modern 4 door|
|1000 HP Marine engine|
|Modern interpretation of the Miura|
|One of two built. Note the hood goes between the two occupants. No top.|

On Saturday Nonette and I went to the Historic Grand Prix of Monaco that is raced on the Streets of Monte Carlo. Next week the current Formula One race will be run on the same streets. The race we went to was for cars that had run in Grand Prixs in Monaco in the past. A lot of million dollar cars driven by millionaires. I only took about 700 pictures. This was a once in a lifetime experience for an old car guy. Look at the pictures below.
