It is everyone’s dream to be able to earn a living doing something they love, and that is exactly what happened almost by accident for me, after selling my car leasing business in 2007.

Mille Miglia

In May 2015, we drove to the Mille Miglia in Italy where Mercedes had a very impressive showing with more Gullwings in one place than we had ever seen before. I doubt we will ever see so many pristine examples in one place ever again. Definitely a trip we will repeat as often as time allows!
