Almost there now, ten laps around the world in my Duetto. Pretty soon I will have done 400.000 km over 45 years. From Nordkapp to Puglia, Sweden, France, Italy, Norway, Finland, Denmark, UK, Ireland, Holland, Belgium, Luxemburg, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, San Marino and some more. Mille Miglia five times too. Still as thrilled as the first time. Any more Duettos with the same distance on the odo?

Meno parole, piú Duetto!

1970!

That's a fantastic achievement Wille, congratulations!
The longest trip I have done in either of my cars is down into France, a 1200 km round trip.

My '72 has about 380,000 miles which is over 600,000 kilometers and although I have replaced the head, cams, pistons, liners and block it still has the original crankshaft and connecting rods. The only thing replaced in the transmission were the sychro rings.

Congrats Wille,

Hey! 10 laps around the planet is the same distance from Earth to the Moon!

I once spent the entire month of February in Sweden. I would of traded that for your two weeks of Summer.

Imponerande Wille! Jag är glad ifall jag hinner med 50mil om året. Skall förhoppningsvis bli mer nu när jag äntligen är klar med totalrenoveringen av hjulupphängningen och styrning.

Bjorn that is close. About a 20min drive. That is also about the distance between me and Wille. And by coincidence also the distance between where Wille live and Ugglarp. :).

Too bad you left. Around your old farm. We have some really nice roads for our Alfas. For those who don't know, check the link.

It is not the swiss alps by any means but still really good sweeping roads.

Wille, det er virkelig flot af den "gamle" Signorita.
Men på den anden side 40 år og 400.000 km.
Det er blot 10.000 om året. Med 365 dage om året er det 96km om dagen.
Med en gennemsnits hastighed på 50km, er det blot 2 timer, om dagen.
Hvad har du brugt din rest tiden til. ?????
