2011/267: Italian Car Fest, Part 5 – Best In Show

1966 Ferrari Dino 206sp
Wouldn’t mind taking that one for a spin πŸ˜‰ While I was there, I overheard someone say that this is a $2 million car!

  1. Nice as it is, if I had $2 million to spend.. well, I’d go for something I could at least fit my camera gear in too (and that had carpets).. lol.. Mind you, I’d not turn down the chance of taking it for a spin either… Real nice shots Michaela.. πŸ™‚

    • If I had $2 million to spend on a car, I could afford to hire someone to follow me with my camera gear πŸ˜‰
      Thanks, Brian.

    you’d think for 2 million bucks, the interior would be a bit nicer πŸ˜‰ congrats on freshly pressed!

    • Well, it IS a race car, guess they’re not big on nice interiors πŸ˜‰ Gotta keep the weight down to make them fly faster πŸ™‚
      Thanks, Doreen, this is very exciting.

    I meant to add the link to the rest of the Italian Car Fest photos, if anyone is interested. You can see them here:

    • Hey there, your link didn’t work. $2 mil (gasp!).

      • What link? The one to the gallery?? It just worked for me….
        You can click the link to my Zenfolio galleries on the sidebar (almost at the top), and then click on the Italian Car Fest album. That should work. I hope!

  7. The Dino was always the controversial Ferrari. It was not a 12-cylinder and the Dino name was in place of calling it a Ferrari. That was a ridiculous notion, of course. They were mass-produced (relatively speaking) and a bachelor in my father’s office bought one. I idolized the guy, managing to get a couple of rides out of him to high-school football games. It was nice pulling up in the Dino and he always made a show of it. Didn’t help me with the girls, though…

    • Aww, darn, where was that Mini back then, when you needed it, right? Oh wait… that wouldn’t have helped, either πŸ˜‰

    My Dad, husband and kids went to the NASCAR race this weekend. I can tolerate a lot of things but I’ve been once and never again! Do I see changing leaves in pic #1?

    • Thankfully there was no racing here… I wouldn’t go to a race either.
      Changing leaves? Probably shrivelled up from the lack of rain.
