And we'll finish, on our fifth night at The Lodge in Sonoma. In between, we have some changes in store that we think you'll like. This is the first time we've tried a hub-and-spoke style route.

2008 California Mille: Allowed Car Entires: When the first Mille Miglia revival was held in 1982, cars were only 25 years old. Now, they’re 51! So we’ve decided to allow a very few post ’57 cars each year, as long as they’re fundamentally the same design as a ‘57 or earlier predecessor. For example, this will make all 356’s and Alfa Guilia’s eligible for consideration. But it won’t help Jaguar XK-E’s – they’re so obviously a next-generation car. Last Night of the 2008 Mille: A surprise is in store on the last night of the 2008 Mille. On that day, May 1, 2008, a fine new lodge, in a spectacular location, is opening near Sausalito.  It’s Cavallopoint – the Lodge at the Golden Gate.
