The Historic Grand Prix - the Shiny Red Maseratis



Two sublime Maseratis and look at the shine.  And imagine fixing the bonnet with a beautiful old leather belt.

The model in the first photo is a Maserati 4 CL from 1939.  The car in the last photo is a Maserati 6CM/4CM from 1936.

Today is race day in Monte Carlo - the 8th Historique Grand Prix. There will be 226 classic cars competing in various classes, with entries from 20 different countries including 87 Brits and 31 Americans.  And the weather, after a misty start, looks good.  Vroom, vroom, vroom ...

A Maserati passed me on the road yesterday, and I thought that was rather special, and then I saw your photos today. Now that is special.
