It's Miura Monday, and thus it's time for a flashback to 1985.

The few photos of the 1985 ILOC meeting (International Lamborghini Owners Club) which I could add to my archive thanks to Jürgen Schillo raised many questions. The main question is: Where did it take place? It took place in Germany for sure, and I guess that the location was somewhere in the southwestern region of the country. Anyhow, what‘s for sure is the fact that Miura SV s/n 5110 was among the participating cars, then owned by Swiss Lamborghini dealer Max Bobnar, owned today by @simonkidston. 😏

The steel bodied Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta s/n 3409GT was sold new in May of 1962 in Italy, but spent most of her life in the USA to where she had been exported in 1970. In 2018, the gorgeous car has returned to Europe and with the help of my colleagues at @schaltkulisse she has found a new home in Munich, Germany, joining an outstanding Ferrari collection.

The car is seen here during #cavalcadeclassiche2018 on the way back from Castelsardo to Santa Teresa Gallura.

The beautiful island of Sardinia is a natural habitat for a Ferrari 330 GTS like s/n 10499 which is seen here near Castelsardo during the Ferrari Cavalcade Classiche 2018. Only 100 units were produced between 1966 and 1968!

The Ferrari 365 GTC s/n 12355 is one of only 150 examples produced between 1968 and 1969. Originally born in Marrone Colorado metallizzato, this example has been forming a part of the collection of @rossocorsa for many years now. For the Cavalcade Classiche 2018, it had been rented out to some loyal customers to participate.
S/N 12355 is seen here making its way through the narrow medieval pedestrian zone of Alghero on Sardinia during the event.

The Ferrari 250 GT California Spider SWB is one of the most valuable roadcars in the world - with a reason! Its sensational design makes it the possibly most sexy roadcar ever. S/N 4125GT was sold new in Venezuela and its early history is widely hidden in the darkness of the past (at least for me). In the 1990s it was owned by a gentleman in Monaco who had it auctioned innthe Monte Carlo Beach Club in 2000, where I have seen this car in the flesh for the first time. The current Singapore based owner bought it at this very auction.

Here, s/n 4125GT is seen during the Ferrari Cavalcade Classiche 2018 on Sardinia near the city of Aggius on September 19, 2018

The Ferrari 275 GTB/4 s/n 09233 is one of the first examples produced. Born in ultra-rare Grigio Notte, this example was probably the first 275 GTB/4 ever shown on American soil since it was displayed at the Chicago Auto Show between February 25 and March 5, 1967.

Since October of 1986, s/n 09233 has formed part of the small collection of a gentleman resident in suburbia Zurich, Switzerland. What I find very remarkable is the fact that his wife didn't sell the Ferrari following the passing of her husband in 2013, but kept it and drives it regularly! Here she's seen roaming Sardinia during the Ferrari Cavalcade Classiche on September 19, 2018.

Well, driving the Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet Series I s/n 0759GT with the top down on Sardinia may cause a bad hair day, but who cares? This stunningly beautiful Ferrari was sold new in Venezuela, but later made its way back to its native Italy where it spent decades in the late Fabrizio Violati's „Collezione Maranello Rosso“. Ferrari Cavalcade Classiche, September 21, 2018

Seen here is the Ferrari 275 GTB/2 Shortnose s/n 07249 making its way through the medieval pedestrian zone in the city of Alghero on Sardinia during the Ferrari Cavalcade Classiche 2018. Having been sold new back in 1965 to a Signore Ferruzzi of Bologna in the rare but gorgeous colour combination of Verde scuro 20-G-186 over beige scuro VM846 leather, s/n 07249 had apparently found a new home in Germany early in its life. Having spent most of its years repainted to Rosso Corsa and later to dark red, it has recently been restored back to its former green glory by @marcozanasi69 on behalf from its current German owner.

F40 s/n 84730 making its way through the medieval pedestrian zone in the city of Alghero on Sardinia during the Ferrari Cavalcade Classiche 2018. The - very adequately! - UK registered car is owned by an Irishman. Prior to my visit I hadn't known that Alghero is the only Italian city in which Catalan is spoken! ☝🏼 #ferrari #ferrari70 #ferrariclassiche #ferraricavalcade #ferraricavalcade2018 #ferraricavalcadeclassiche #ferraricavalcadeclassic #cavalcadeclassiche #cavalcadeclassiche2018 #cavalcadeclassic #sardegna #sardinia #sardinien #alghero #ferrarif40 #f40 #catalan #enclave #andreasbirner #myf40

The Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider s/n 14543 is a US model which left the factory in the rather rare colour combination of white with black seats and burgundy inserts. During a restoration within the last ten or so years, the colours were literally flipped to black with red seats and black inserts. During the Ferrari Cavalcade Classiche 2018 on Sardinia, the car was spotted with a very joyful passenger.

Near the city of Aggius, September 19, 2018
