Blue Cars

I don't know anything about cars except ignition, steering wheel, accelerator and brake.  
Oh yes, and radio.
But I do know beauty.  So I visited a Naples automobile museum again.


A 1914 Silver Ghost Colonial made by Rolls-Royce was noted for how well-built every part is.


This 1965 Porsche 356C coupe was given to the museum founder when 
he graduated from high school and left for college.


A 1933 Twelve Sport Phaeton Packard was a prestigious touring car favored by
college presidents and business leaders for whom an impressive car was essential.


A 1938 Maserati 8CTF had a disappointing racing career in Europe but won
Indianapolis twice and Pikes Peak twice.  It kept racing into the 1950s.


Bugatti.

Other colours are available.
When I was a little boy and collected toy racing cars I had a model of that Maserati in blue. In those days all French Grand Prix drivers had blue cars, Italy was red and GB was British Racing Green.

Jack, these cars are all ultimate classics that have survived and been lovely maintained by their owners. Good that they are in a museum open to the public who can enjoy seeing them.
