Mar 16, 2018 894

Some 70 classic cars that could have qualified for the Mille Miglia, Italy's most-famous open road race, will make their way to Carson City during the 28th annual California Mille. The cars will motor to San Francisco's Nob Hill on April 15 for a free car show and preview of the California Mille. Alfa Romeos, Porches and Mercedes-Benzes will take their places next to Jaguars, Ferraris, Bentleys and other classics on Mason Street, closed to traffic between Sacramento and California streets.

The public is invited to see the cars and meet the drivers from 16 states and Colombia from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. At 1:30 p.m. Sunday, California Mille co-directors David and Howard Swig will greet fans and recall the history of the Mille Miglia (a 1,000-mile race) that ran from 1927 to 1957. On April 16, at 8:30 a.m. the Italian flag will be waved outside the departure arch at Mason and California streets, officially starting the four-day, 1,000-mile tour.
