Dirk,

Great photos. Are you getting into the closed off part tomorrow? That is a great looking venue for a show, better than Pebble Beach.

Great event and great pics.
The first good pics of the 575 gtc. I'm really liking that car after seeing your pics :)

Do you've got more pictures of that 410 Superamerica? I really dig that car.

Concours at Villa d'Este

Oh yea!......The Villa d'Este is one of the premier sites for a "concours".... Lake Como is a very beautiful area, even the sunlight seems perfect (Many a movie has used the Villa's lawns as a backdrop)............I'm looking foward to seeing more pictures.....

well, yesterday the internet & phone lines where down in the hotel
the nearby "cybercafe" didn't allow laptops & closed at 10
5 cafe's didn't have internet
1 nearby hotel didn't have internet
& 1 other nearby hotel had the same problem: no internet & phone lines
so that wasn't a very good evening
so here are a few shots from yesterday & today

basman

the 575 GTZ is amazingly beautifull
you have to see it in real life

i was talking to the guy from Zagato
and the second car will be all black

and yesterday i found out that 5 should get made, at least that should be the amount of orders they already got
and then the price
€660.000 without taxes

Good!

By the way, Dirk: on your website, I cannot view the gallery. It says:

If you've finished your configuration but you're still seeing this page, that's because for safety's sake we don't let you run Gallery in an insecure mode. You need to switch to secure mode before you can use it. Here's how:


Unix with shell access
% cd /path/to/your/gallery
% sh ./secure.sh

Unix with FTP access
ftp> chmod 644 .htaccess
ftp> chmod 644 config.php
ftp> chmod 0 setup

Windows
C:\> cd \path\to\your\gallery
C:\> secure.bat

Looks like an amazing event. I love your shots.
5 GTZ's, that's great.

And what do you think about the GG50 after seeing it in real life? The front seems to be inspired by the Rosso, that's a good thing. How's the back?
