    YIKES -- even here in California things "feel" like they are getting better. I had hoped most of things would be back to normal by September.

    I see that they did just cancel Octoberfest as of yesterday. Really unfortunate 8-( https://www.oktoberfest.de/en/magazine/oktoberfest-news/2021/oktoberfest-2021-will-not-take-place

    Not having Octoberfest would not be a "deal breaker" for me (would have been amazing though).

    I am judging at a regional Ferrari Concours on Sunday September 26th...I’d love to ship my car over there forVille d’eteste but I’d have to see all costs involved as my business is still down from Covid...I am in suburban Philly so if we could get discounted rates on shipping and accommodations AND we are allowed to travel abroad I’d seriously consider it...the “X” factor THIS year is Covid...the Ferrari National in Portland for July was just cancelled on Saturday so I’m not sure how the dynamics of Covid could impact European leisure travel for us Americans

    Years ago I spent time at the school library. With down time I looked at a few old automobile magazines. Some early 1970's English car rag included a classified section. A dealer had a LM listed for somewhere around 15000 pounds. Maybe less :D?

    Kirk F White had a 250 LM listed in his newsletter for around $10K in the 70s.

    There will be no travel without a corona vaccination. I already got the first Biontech vaccination. Life is coming back, only I had a little crash and now have to mend the front bumper again ... the broken splinter still worries me ...

    This is a minor organisational point in the scheme of things, but I understand that the plan is for many breweries to hold mini Oktoberfests in their brew houses and proprietary beer gardens instead. The Oktoberfestbier meanwhile will still be served. No fairground, but perhaps actually nicer than the Theresienwiese where the Fest is usually held.

    also there are some stunning beer-related locations in Bavaria to stay in on a car tour...and you won’t have to worry about Munich parking.

    I think with the pandemic it is very difficult to commit to any dates. Combined with my extremely reluctant employer (when it comes to leave), it's not looking good for me to participate. But I would like to, so I"ll keep tabs.

    At the moment we have weekly changes with open or closed shops, restaurants, garden restaurants, ...
    Changes in shopping with click an meet, then click and collect, then closed, ....
    In some areas it's forbidden to go out between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., in others between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., in others not and as I said this changes nearly weekly.
    Bayern is different to Baden Württemberg, is different to Hessen, .......

    It seems that they do not know what they do.

    I think this will be better in autumn, but who knows.
    Last year they expected that this spring is better, but before XMas it changes to the bad side.

    Yeah that came in on the Ferrari app.
    Not a bad price for such an experience.

    Are you guys stil contemplating a trip to Maranello?

    I am planning to drive there this summer with either the 550 or 328.
    Have yet todo the pilgrimage with one of them.

    We are about to open up the country again here in Austria on the 19th of May, so there is finally some light at the end of the tunnel.
