The Petrolheadonism DIY Dream Holiday…

We visited Motor Valley Italy and had an awesome time visiting all the factories and museums from Ducati to Lamborghini to Ferrari to Maserati as well as the almighty Pagani. Seeing the history as well as the factory plant lines building these incredible machines that populate the world and mean so much to so many people was truly awesome.
