Ferrari 250 Monza Barchetta Scaglietti

It must be the Sn. 0466M (originally with Pininfarina's body), since the Sn. 0442M resides in USA

What was the 'Coppa Milano San Remo'? I know of races in both cities,but not one connecting the two,or for cars in photos.

As far as I'm aware, it's a modern "retro" event

Thanks,Dretcenterini;I wish there was some way of finding out about such events BEFORE they are held. As teapots post says its a revival this had me baffled.

The event was held for the first time in 1906, then from 1929 to 1973, following the same route that many tourists from Milan were used to covering to reach the sunny coasts of Liguria (and they still do!).

For many informations (although still icomplete) look at http://www.milano-sa...url=storia.html
