Dirk, I'll post some photos of local cars later. There is a small, but very close Abarth community in Vancouver B.C., Canada.

I'm impressed with the style and performance of the early Zagato cars, I've almost bought a few, but decided to buy a Ferrari instead (the cars I looked at were in poor shape and expensive).

I may still own one in the future....

That event you attended is very popular. Have you been to Guy Moerenhout's garage? I think he organises that event.

I will attempt to post some more photos, this time of some Abarth cars. There are two 1000TC Berlina's and one 750 GT Zagato "Double Bubble".

Dirk, I don't know anybody in Belgium, I've only heard and read about Guy's garage and the Zolder event in Auto Italia Magazine (published in the UK).

I know that magazine, i've bought it a couple of times
The event at Zolder is great, last year was the first time that i went to the classic grand prix event and i'm going back this year
I didn't took that many pics that year
i could't buy any more rolles at the track
i'll post a couple of pics later, i don't think that i took a pic of an abarth

Cool pictures

Those are really cool pictures, a little big though, but I like them. The Ford GT40 is a classic. I'm not sure why the other will not load. Try putting it at the end, to be honest I've looked at it and it should post so I'm not sure why it isn't.

Read your private messages!

You pics are too big, please look at "You have "X" new messages" at the top of the screen
Smaller pics or I'll delete the post, my cpu freezes on this topic because your pics are so big.

Thanks

digital camera

Digital is the way to go if you are currently scanning all your pictures. You'll notice a difference in quality on the web right away.

*reading through the old topics*
*bumping old topics*

I love Abarths !!!

Dr.Bob joined my folks and me to a Fiat 500 meeting and there were a few Abarths and they completely ruled. What a great sound. What an awesome look with the back end opened up. Absolutely fabulous
