    Yes, beautiful pics already :D

    I guess I wouldn't mind that hard being in a traffic jam when I saw cars like that next to me... :D Didn't some Italians started a conversation with you guys?

    Hey guys, glad you had a nice week-end and safe (though lengthy apparently) drive home. Choosing Sting over FFOS was probably not the best choice to make, the concert was somewhat ordinary to my taste.
    The only upside is that, while you were zooming around in Tuscany, the 550 was getting a Tubiiiiii :)

    Hi gents,

    I will have a closer look to the pics today.
    The problem is simpel: There are so many private pics with just happy/drunken dudes - I can not post!!!!!
    I will try to post some pics from the surrounding of the beautiful Toscana, Italy and some ferrari pics.
    Please understand me and the other gents from the trip. Nobody wants to show up in the internet with such personal pics!
    There are hundred of pics but only a few from the drive. Most pics are from the "dinners" or whatever we can call it:D or from the Bar......Rob Lay would bann me for posting this pics for the rest of my life;)

    uli and me got a fine at our first stop at an autogrill before milano because we parked our mondials directly in front of the entrance outside of the official parking lots. EUR 33.60 each, no quantity discount. "no line, no parking" the policeman with the machine gun said. :mad:

    For All....indeed the bunch had to wait for me 5-10 minutes cause I got stuck in traffic in the beginning and I drove a "reasonal" speed of 140-150km/h to catch them. As I didn't knew the road, I had taken the wrong exit and I had to turn back on the highway and take the next exit. Then of course they told me they were doing ~200..nah..nah...would have been impossible to catch them at that speed without risking your driver licence..even if it drives very very fast on the italian highways. But I took my revenge on the smaller curvy roads afterwards, speeding hard after a 355.

    And a small race between a Testa and a 360 was a nice match but the 360 won once in 4th gear.

    Was a nice trip and very good roads (except some stupid traffic jams that are NO good for our V8's and V12's).

    Those who weren't there missed a lot...many good laughs (I hope you'll see Wolfgang as Mötley Crue member), many drinks, many pasta's, much sun, no rain, much fuel burned and also much tires burned.

    Now the car only needs a GOOD wash !

    Didier.

    A last one : at the custom, a lady asks me "Did you buy something in Italie ?", I would like to have said one of these :

    - "Only a lot of fuel for my car and I still got some 60l behind."
    - "Nothing, my wife had no time to spend some money"
    - "Nothing, all my money went into fuel and highway taxes"

    But I just said "No"....
