I would also send a PM to pictune about joining the Dutch convoy but PM box is over the (newbie) limit...

I plan to hit mainland Europe early-ish Thursday, but maybe too late to catch the Dutch convoy, but could meet at the same hotel Thursday night?

Are there any ideas/suggestions or mention of 25th anniversary stickers for the convoy? Just wondering.

Hi Giorgio, that would be very kind of you. Would we be allowed to add the UK club name to this?

Thanks Joe,

I am still going to have to take the fast route through France due to work commitments so will see you all in Turin on the 21st. There are two Holiday Inn's in Turin- is the plan to stay in the one that Giorgio recommended?

I stripped out the 20vt front end underneath for a complete refresh and then decided to do the rear too.

But with moving house this year already, I was too ambitious and the car is up on my ramps pretty much untouched since October last year, still awaiting the customary clean and protection to the underside before putting everything else back on on the car. Not least I also wanted to get the centre console out and sort it too, I have a n/s door mirror to replace (minor ramps mistake) and toying with decatting too as turbo been rebuilt.

At least most parts are back from powder coating (painting) now though.

My 16v needs belts etc doing as I they are well overdue and it stresses me out too much when I do drive it, plus I have a list as long as both my arms I would want to do before showing that car as it is a bit tired bless it.

Really hope you all have loads of fun and looking forward to the updates, pictures and videos from you all.

There are a few options to join tours while we're in Turin, the Centro Storico Fiat museum is offering a 1.5hr guided tour on the Sunday afternoon, time to be confirmed but it might fit in nicely after out lunch.

https://m.facebook.com/centrostoricofiat/

.... the other one is a tour of the Lingotto,

Turino Lingotto tour

Not sure its in English so you might need to translate.

If you fancy either of these let me know so we have an idea of numbers.

I was planning to visit Centro Storico again anyway on Sunday afternoon (only open on Sundays, 10am-7pm, easy to get to by underground from Holiday Inn) so may be interested in a guided tour.

Your Lingotto link is broken but there's an english page https://www.pinacoteca-agnelli.it/visit/guided-tours/ and it looks as though you can wander around with an Audio Guide pretty cheaply. It would be nice if we could meet Chris Bangle again, can you organise that?

Along with the Dutch contingent (meeting just outside Basel Thursday evening) I'm hoping to visit the FCA Heritage Hub in part of the old Mirafiori factory, perhaps on Monday?

And maybe Pininfarina again at Cambiano? https://pininfarina.it/en/museum/ (Visits must be booked in advance and are allowed for groups of at least 5 people)

There's also the Museo Nazionale dell'Automobile in Turin, open every day from 10am

Hi Dave,

the thread Joe posted is a result of me informing with the various musea.

* The Centro Storico has no guided tours, but they told me 1,5 hours is enough to visit the museum by ourselves (after the lunch in the Atlantic)
* Lingotto has guided tours and they will organise it on the 24th afternoon especially for us. I will ask them whether we can go on the test track by car. If the tour is in Italian only, I can translate. But I will ask for an English speaking guide
* Unfortunately Pininfarina is closed the whole week from the 24th onwards, since the 24th is a bank holiday in Turin. We are welcome on the Friday before, but we will not make that in time
* I sent an email to the press office of FCA about the heritage hub, since a contact was not to be found on their website. The exhibition was opened at the beginning op April, but it is not clear to me whether it is already open for the public or not. No answer from them yet, but will keep you posted!

Thanks Virginie, and welcome to this forum for Facebook-phobes like me wink laugh
I wonder if we shouldn't try to arrive in Turin a day earlier then?

Thanks Giorgo, has FCA Heritage given any indication of when they might open to the public?

We are thinking of arranging a small group (minimum 5 people) to visit pininfarina on Friday before the main event

Hi everyone,

an update on the tour to Lingotto.

A tour around Lingotto is arranged on Monday the 24th form 9-12 hours, especially for us. It will be with an English speaking guide. The tour includes a walk around the premises, going up to the socalled pista parabolica, a visit to the Museo dell'Automobile and concludes with a drink in the Museo del Vermouth.

The group has to be a minimum of 10 persons and a maximum of 14 persons.

Cost: € 55,- per person.

It is possible to go up by car to the pista parabolica, but the cost of the tour then rises to € 135,- per person.

My suggestion would be to make reservations for the tour for €55,- and arrange on the spot who wants to go up by car. What are your thoughts?

Been there, done that, and TBH driving around the pista parabolica was a bit of a let down, it's old and bumpy and you can't get much speed up before having to stop again at the end of the semi-circle. Driving up and down the ramps in a line of Coupes was much more fun (and even walking down/up again afterwards)
