27161775872_6323b2d4b0_kYesterday we visited a small town in central Italy. We rented a BMW 1 Series and it was almost too big for the narrow and steep streets of Naro. But this isn’t a travel blog, it is about cars. With that said, we have to mix a little travel log with car blog. I miraculously found an “agriturismo” farm called Mandranova. They specialize in award winning olive oil production. Our first night we sat alone with the founder, Giuseppe, and just began the usual small talk about where we came from and how we like Sicily. About 5 minutes in, I hear the Giuseppe mention his love of classic cars and the rest is history. 26652264644_6f7a701e4a_kThe next morning we toured not his olive oil production but his collection of 5 spectacular classics. The stable includes a 3 time Mille Miglia Storica Lancia B20GT, a 356A Porsche Coupe, an Alfa Giulia Sprint GT Veloce and my fave, a Fiat 1100TV race car. Call me crazy but it is so cute. I told him about the collection of my grand cousin and he may be interested in some of the cars. His restorer is in Palermo and by the looks of the collection, he is pretty talented. Today we tour the olive oil factory and ponder the old dusty collection. Decisions will have to be made soon. Projects anyone? Raise your hand soon! The clean cars are not part of my cousin’s collection!! of27258977065_e5c4d5d65b_k

    The Lancia is handsome, but I thought the grey-blue color of the Alfa Romeo was perfect for that car. What a perfect pair!
