    I'll be in Italy next week for business, visiting Florence next weekend. Is there any type of traditional hot rod scene in the area? Love to check out whatever there is.

    My wife went to college in Florence for a year and 25 years later she took me for a class reunion. We spent a week there and a couple of more weeks in Rome, Venice and traveled to Paris before flying home. I too was interested in automotive activities. I didn't find much. There is a Fort above the city that is a Museum and has a couple of original Ferrari wooden body bucks,but of course it was closed that week. There are not any modified cars on the street and the whole time I only seen one restored Fiat 500. Florence is one of the great Art cities of the world, take a weekend off from the hot rod and immerse yourself in the culture and aura of all the history. Standing in front of the Statue of David will stir emotion that for me was only exceeded by watching the sun rise on the Bonneville Salt Flats.

    Couple of years ago I built a chassis for a customer from Italy building a Jimmy Shine style 34 PU. He E-Mails me every so often with questions so I assume it's moving along?

    Cross the Arno river on the bridge, avoid the shops-that sell tourismo jewelry, and
    take a walk through the Medici Pitti-palace. The tiles furnishings and ceiling art are beyond belief. And the Sculpture Academy, look for the "Captives," it's near enough to walk to, (after you've seen the Uffizi museum's collection of works.)
