To maintain the spirit of the Mille Miglia, we carefully choose cars that fit our requirements and specifications from each year’s group of applicants.
The California Mille is open to any and all cars that could have participated in the original Mille Miglia. Foreign and domestic manufacturers are welcome, but all cars must have been made prior to January 1, 1958.
The organizers will select the most interesting cars while seeking a variety of makes and types.
The event is limited to approximately 65-70 cars based on the availability of hotel reservations.
Every vehicle must be road legal, registered and covered by liability insurance, proof of which must be carried in the vehicle at all times during the event.
A clear, current and reproducible photograph or jpeg must accompany each application along with an accurate vehicle description.
Every car is required to be properly insured according to the state and/or country of the car’s registration. Please note that some insurance policies may have limitations on mileage or restrict coverage when the car is not parked in a secured garage overnight, driven in road rallies or while in transit. We recommend verifying that your car will be covered for a 1,000-mile organized multi-day rally that involves hotel parking lots and commercial shipping.
