Vintage metal converges at the Modena Cento Ore Classic

Reader Alan Guerzoni tipped us off about the recently-contested Modena Cento Ore Classic, a vintage road/track rally in which participants cover 1000km in four days across 10 timed special stages and 3 track stages.

This year's overall winner was a 1965 Shelby GT350 that was raced by its Swiss owner. It was joined by some seriously exotic hardware on the four-day journey, including the stunning Mercedes 300 SLS Porter (great story about that car here), a bevy of E-Types, including a dead-sexy low drag '61 car, and a pair of Alfa Romeo Giulia TZs -- a '63 TZ1 and a '65 TZ2 -- just to name a few examples.

Alan has a gallery of brilliant photos from the race that we encourage you to check out. The event's official site has a full entrant list and a lot of great information about the race if you're interested in learning more about it as well.

This is one we wish we were on hand for.
