Re: Murphio's Meanderings

I have a good friend who lives just outside Senigalia, in the Marche region on the Adriatic coast. Every time I visit him I am surprised how many 500s I see being driven around, by people of all ages. Their 'Radunos' regularly pull in 100+ Cinquecentos! (but the restaurant meal at the end of the day may have something to do with it!---no tucker-vans). I have been asked to try and get my car down to them so that it can attend a Raduno---any body able to recommend a reliable transport company?--getting too old to drive 2,300km each way (Ann doesn't drive).

What I've learned about Italy is that I won't be bringing him in May...the weather is significantly more Italian back home this week than it is down here!
I've been sucker punched Ha, OK Peter, I misread that one.Its a long way to go. As you may remember my car was restored in Italy. I did consider driving it back but in the end, opted for transportation. As could not take the time. Would have taken a few days to say the least.

Enjoy the trip. I'm out to Amalfi and the island of Ischia in June. Love it there.

Tom, I've used the "shipley" website for transportation quotes. They have reviews of the vendors and you get multiple quotes too.
