Hi from Italy!

Hello,

I'm Andrea (Andy) and I live in Italy.

Obviously I'm a Civic owner. My car is a 2.2 i-CTDi Exclusive Limited Edition DPF Alabaster Silver Metallic.

Some months ago I decided to change my old car so I started to search some infos on the web and I discovered Civinfo.

I registered myself some month ago for seeing the pics of your cars.
After some months I can say that this is a wonderful website with a lot of infos and "friends" who are owners of a beautiful car like the one I have bought!

I hope we will enjoy all together writing about our "daughter"

Here below some pics of my car, and in the sign you can access on my picasa album for seeing more pics.





"Ciao" to all
Andy

Yes, "Toro Rosso" factory (ex Minardi) is here in Faenza and some years ago (when was still Minardi) I made a tour inside the factory.
I remember the clean like a surgery room and the F1 cars inside.
That site has something of "magic"...I cannot explain, but I remember it was a beautiful sensation....perhaps the fact of seeing something exclusive.

Yes, for the first time in its history, It won a GP!!!

I read that the funny thing was that the team never thought seriously in a GP victory.
They had no caps with "Toro Rosso" logo to give to the winner, so they had to give a cap with "Red Bull" logo to Vettel for the interviews.
Toro Rosso is the italian translation of Red Bull and the team owner's is Red Bull.

Of course!
When I was young I went sometimes at Imola's F1 circuit for seeing GP and qualifications.
Imola is about 10 miles far from Faenza.

I remember a lot of drivers and I remember an afternoon too where Gilles Villeneuve did the record of the track with its Ferrari (I think doing a lap near 1: 31)...a record for those years!
Perhaps was his last year...I don't remember well...it was a lot of years ago!
