    Non si può descrivere la passione, la si può solo vivere- Enzo Ferrari

    The words of the great man echoed in my mind as I was getting ready to take my 500 Mondial up the Caramulo hill. The sound of the engine blurring all the noises around me but the facial expressions of the people writing tales of joy laughter and admiration as the cars lined up in the grid.

    Caramulo Motor Festival was on. A celebration of one of the greatest achievements of human engineering.

    A magical place. Bring on 2019. Hope you enjoy.

    Present between many others:

    Ferrari 500 Mondial 0424 MD
    Ferrari 166 MM 0056 M (first ever Ferrari in Portugal)
    Ferrari 195 Inter 0103S
    Ferrari Dino 246 GTS

    Yes, one on each side of the Pond!
    And both chassis numbers ( note: not cars) where owned at some point by same Frenchman Francois Picard, hence French Blue.

    Muito obrigado looks like you had a great time.

    When we lived in Lisbon 1968-75 there was a notorious red246GTS that left a trail of smoke killing any insects or birds within miles. My father used to say "There goes that playboy again." It could usually be seen between Estoril and Lisbon on the coast road and that car in your photos reminded me of it...though it wasn't RHD like the one you show.
