It's been very volatile weather here this spring, but I've managed to go for quite a few nice drives nonetheless. Yesterday was a particulary nice evening, and although I brought my camera I was having too much fun driving so I forgot taking pictures before the sun set. Did take a few snaps after sunset, and this one turned out ok.

Man, I love this car. It drives soooo well, and being mid-summer the roads were empty and all those $@@!! bikers are on vacation. Had one of the best drives ever, and what started out as a half hour trip ended up taking 5 hours. Caught up (!) with a black 488 GTB, and just kept on going. Forza Italia.

Norwegian summer nights go on forever, don't they?
Very interesting picture; it's very moody and somewhat brooding ...

A beautiful but very hot day at the Hillsborough Concours in the SF Bay Area. This is part of the Ferrari V6/V8 section, which featured lots of beautiful cars, but only two Dinos. My car is second from the right.

Beautiful car. Happy on your behalf that you managed to find a dry day for the drive. I have been in Norway for a couple of weeks now without that luck......-

Enjoy your car

Hot and muggy in Indianapolis tonight - fun drive thru the city with the Dino. I haven't taken it out in months, started immediately and ran beautifully. Not many 45 year old cars can claim that kind of user friendliness. I am looking to buy a Lancia Stratos in the next few months - can't wait to compare the two on the same roads. And yes I still have the old CA plates from when I bought it several years ago - the Indianapois police seem to not care?

There is a Stratos coming up in an auction soon.

I have been in touch with them about this car. Driversource in Houston also has a nice stradale version (probably nicer than the Bonhams car) The asking price is $540 which seems a tad high given the restored petrolicios Stratos that sold for 450.

I took my Dino out early today and ended up at the Enderle Center C&C in Tustin. A smaller C&C with mostly vintage Porsches and VW with a sprinkling of other cool cars. Every time I drive my Dino it reminds me of how special it is!

The Bonhams car is a continuation car. The Petrolicious car wasn't perfect or 100% original but nice.

Very difficult to find in the US. DS car looks original. I would take a close look at it if I were in the market. Here is mine. Not for sale

August 4th, 5th and 6th my wife and I participated in the Northwest Classic Rally hosted by the Alfa Romeo Owners of Oregon. I've had the privilege of participating over the last 29 years. Two days of time, speed and distance rally covering 700 - 800 miles. The weather was a little too good - around 100 degrees, but the roads and scenery were outstanding. 70+ classic cars participated in the rally and another 30+ ran the rally route as a tour. We've signed up for next year!
