Peek into a Mille Miglia Garage

As we saw in today's Petrolicious video, Italian Roberto Vesco is quite the fan of the Mille Miglia. The Fiat featured in today's video has been raced in the Mille Miglia several times, and one year it even won at the hand of Vesco's son. Roberto Vesco is also quite the collector: over the course of 35 years, he has found and accumulated books, magazines, rare steering wheels, mechanical counters, chronometers, mufflers, and engines. Below are some of our favorite magazine and brochure covers from the 1930s, '40s, and '50s, many of which are related to the Mille Miglia and all of which we found in Vesco's garage.
