    Thank you for noticing! My Dino did run perfectly.
    I have also noticed a couple of things about my Dino.
    1. As I get older, the Dino seem to be getting smaller and smaller. Go figure.
    2. After about an hour of continuous driving, the beautiful engine sound seemed to turn into a drone.....kind of like being on a long airplane flight. Maybe that is just my ears getting older too. I just happened to have my iPhone X with me. Believe it or not, the Dino did not come with bluetooth capability. So I used my bluetooth noise cancelling earbuds and they took away the drone but I could still hear the engine. If anyone else here is having the drone problem on long drives, you might want to try noise cancelling ear buds. I hope this is not blasphemy. I would never suggest this on a short drive.....the sound is just too beautiful.

    I have the same experience with the engine noise on highways at high speed. First 100 km I enjoy, hereafter the engine noise is too much. Same solution with noise reducing earphones hooked up to my Iphone and some good music from the eighties...-:)

    Having driven mine for an average of six hours a day for four days to Maranello this summer, and the same back again, I didn't tire of the noise at all. I am totally hooked! :):):)

    Performed same trip to Italy with my wife in the passenger side. She was not overly impressed with what I called the "nice music" from behind. Anyhow conversationn was limited to hand signs down the German autobahn.

    Great shots. The shadow shot reminds of my early days with my Dino, in the mid 1970s, when I would see a similar shadow alongside the car as I drove at certain times of day. It was (and is) mesmerizing, and I had to remember to keep my eyes on the road! Thanks for sharing your lovely blue Dino. Fred
