Love the upside-down Mini Minor grille on the Minor - gives it a decidedly happy look :)

I see the picture says it's Milan, but the number plates suggest Genoa.


After a quick search on Google Earth I found Corso Guglielmo Marconi in Genoa. Still looks the same, well nearly.

I think it was pretty much the whole GRX5D. I know who has it, or who had in 15 years ago. It may be the 66 Monte car, not sure.

Do you mean the car you know of 15 years ago may be the Monte car? - the Freeborough car certainly wasn't. See history previously referred to.
