I just shipped my 356 over to Geneve for some European touring. I too will be
there from mid Sept for a month or two.
I have sent a request to Audi to visit their archives, shouldn't be any
Plan on going to the various museums, spending time in the South of France,
doing a few Alpine passes, maybe a rally or two, the Goodwood Revival
I should have some time to get together if you would like, my lady friend
will probably try to kill me after a week or so anyway so I'd drop her back
home and go on my merry way.
There are museums in Mougins, Turin, Mulhouse, and a few private collections.
Gino Macalusso is there, he owns Girard-Perregaux (as opposed to a
Girard-Perregaux) the watch makers, and has a nice collection. Prince
Rainier's collection (Monaco) is usually open too.
Roy Salvadori lives in Monaco as does David Coulthard, who just opened the
Columbus hotel there. Nino Vacarella lives in Sicily and is treated like the
Deity he is.
Dominique, if she doesn't kill me, has a language school and could "ease the
if language is a problem.
I would recommend a book called "Great Motor Highways of the Alps" by Hugh
Merrick (1959) and "Motoring Abroad" by Rodney Walkerley (1950) to get a
flavour of the period and area. "La Dolce Vida" and "To Catch a Thief" are
good movies as is "Ronin."
My interest is in the period from 1933 to 1962 so that's where I am
concentrating my efforts for travelling. I managed to scam a book deal and a
few articles to help offset the expenses. The thought of actually using my
own money was so repulsive that I reduced myself to the indignities of
I know many people "over there" and if they are not in prison or a mental
hospital at the time they would more than happy to show us around.
