Cars

Naples has a little known but world class automobile museum. Over the next few days, I plan to show some cars from that collection.  How to pick a reasonable number of cars from the 
100+ automobiles in the collection is a big challenge.


This is the first exhibit seen in the entry hall, three red racing cars from 1964.  There is a mid engine Porsche 904 GTS, a front engine Alfa Romeo GTZ and a rear engine Simca-Abarth.

I think all racing cars should be red. It just looks right. Love those old photos up above too.

Alfa Romeo forever!

Yes. Like VP says, for lots of reasons. But I wouldn't mind a Porsche but red? Mmmm, that's Ferrari and Ferrari alone...

I think my husband's heart would stop beating if he was able to enter this museum to see all the wonderful cars there.
