Ah I see... Looks similar to the old Brno track that I drove past a few weeks back on route to the Brno WSB bike races - though that was a lot more run down....

Absolutely stunning car, Chaz. Is that Fiorano?

I love Monaco, and it looks like everyone wanted your car.

Great shots.

Thought you were sending your son here to do some jobs for all of us after he put that brake light in?

Thanks for the great shots. Touring Europe in the Summer in an open Ferrari. It does not get much better than that!

Great shots. seeing the old track like I've seen in old pics next to your car is awsome. Especially, since I see the old paddocs as Black and white still, and your car, VERY NICE tones BTW, looking like an old/new constrast.

sounded like a fun trip.

Yes indeed it was a great time The people around the car was a coach load of Italians, we were all staying at Sanremo near Monaco. The attention was amazing. What was even more amazing was there faces when the big black man opend the car door and said it was ok for them to sit in it
The high lights of the trip was the Pits (top pictures). The Route Napoleon, the Alps, the Monaco/Nice/cannes coast line. Maranello and the Dolomite mountains, also saw the new 458 and it was pointed out to me that the dude in the nondescript grey VW driving by was no other than the Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo going to the Fiorano track
The low point was Monaco its self, real small and nothing there really
The car also attracted alot of attention in Maranello its self. Loads of people taking pictures and i let them sit in and even rev the car. Many asked me about the wonderful noise coming from the exhaust. And boy did it sing through the mountain passes, people were applauding from the lay bys as i screamed by Imagine the picture, they were in the middle of the Alps and they can hear a loud exotic approaching and then they can still hear it 5 minutes after it flashed by
So as i always say to those who are siht scared to drive there Ferraris 100 miles. Guys i do this kind of trip every year as well as the Le mans. No problems what so ever in the 3000 miles i did last week. Its a car....drive the thing

Couldn't agree more!! Did a similar trip in '07 and put 3,000 mls on the 360. Completely what they were designed for in my opinion...

Great trip, and lovely pics. Vitalone already put my sentiments in a sentence, so I'll just say: well done!

I still think it's such a shame they restored the Reims circuit buildings. It lost its 'of a forgotten age' kinda feel.

Chaz, you are an inspiration I was scared to drive my old 328 in case I put too many miles on the clock, and missed it when it was gone. I don't think I'll have the same problem with the 308 as I have learned that it's only a car and the mileage really doesn't matter.

+1, The philosophy I take is that if you calculate the total cost of running your Ferrari for the year and divide that by the total miles driven that year, you get the cost per mile (include the depreciation, and for modern Ferrari's anyway, it gets a bit frightening).

So, the more miles you drive, the cheaper each mile becomes. The first mile on January 1st is one damn expensive mile. After that every mile saves you money, and I'm all for that (it is a recession after all)

(say it to yourself enough times and you'll start to believe it!)
