Tour Auto 2005
A tour through France like no other
Arnaud Blanfuney, Jean-Bernard Heros, Henry T. Kistler, Pierre Goossens, Arnaud Blanfuney
It is difficult to understand the size of the Tour Auto, not only in terms of the large number of older sports cars taking part, but also in terms of sheer length, both in distance and time. Beginning on Monday, April 25 in Paris, the entire entourage takes a week to traverse the countryside of France before ending up in Biarritz on Saturday, April 30.

Mille Miglia 2005
Report from on scene
Marcel Massini, Keith Bluemel, Henry T. Kistler, Pierre Goossens
Historic motor sport has seen a tremendous revival over the last decade, as events such as the Mille Miglia encourage owners of some of the world's most exotic vintage and classic racing machinery to put their cars back into competition. Brescia, Italy, and the historic Mille Miglia were one of the initiators of this revitalization, back in 1977, and this plus the actual races from 1927 to 1957 have made this team unique.
Mangiomo: Mille Miglia
On a brillant Sunday morning in May, my friend and I arrived at the Milan airport with one goal in mind - to reach Brescia as quickly as possible. We had been assigned to attend a lunch at the newly opened Mille Miglia Museum. However, this was not a normal Sunday in Italy, nor was this a normal lunch. This happened to be the day on which the participants of the 2005 Mille Miglia were congregating to celebrate another successful year over a farewell lunch hosted by the Museum.
New program puts you in the testing seat, as a new supercar is announced by Ferrari

Art in Motion
It returns after a sympathetic restoration - the fluid persona of the 375 MM, s/n 0490 AM

Undertaking the job of restoring any high value collector automobile is not a task to be taken lightly. But when it comes to rebuilding one-of-a-kind vintage Ferraris, then extraordinary skill and abundant knowledge of the product at hand, and how it was put together, become a pre-requisite. This is particularly true when dealing with the last 375 Mille Miglia Sport Berlinetta built by Ferrari, in 1955.
A Wolf in Sheep's Clothes
An all-out GT racing in the guise of a boulevard cruiser
Ferret Fotographic, Peter Sachs, Andre Van Bever
Things are not always as they seem. Even the most experienced Ferrari eye could be excused from thinking that the car before you is a 400 Superamerica from the early 1960s, a civilized, but speedy, boulevard cruiser. It certainly looks like one. About the only visual clue as to the car's true identity is its 2400 mm wheelbase (400 SAs used a 2420 mm platform), but who can pick that up from the photos on these pages?
Ferrari at the sports car tracks of the central USA - part one of six
Jerry McDermott, David N. Seielstad
Jerry McDermott, L.L. Cook
While the Midwest of the United States is usually considered to be a fairly flat landscape, there are, however, enough rolling hills to make available a variety of major track experiences, with the main cities of Chicago and Milwaukee acting as the hubs, at least for may of the drivers. In the south area was Lawrenceville, an engaging airport circuit; north of Chicago was Milwaukee with its famous championship oval; in between was the diminutive Wilmot Hills course; northwest of Milwaukee was arguably America's most beautiful track, Road America; and northwest of Chicago was Meadowvale with its famous Monza Wall.
