It's only your sig line that makes it all the more ironic.
Spent a few days in the West Country, lots of twisty roads, very narrow, most bends blind to some degree. Pretty humpy too. A GTO 250 went flashing by in the opposite direction, far too fast to do anything. Just settled down from that and one of the swoopy modern ones goes past. Really nice.
Some of you should have a go at visiting the Goodwood Revival weekends if you want to get close to lots of exotica and see some very competitive old knacker car racing. If not, at least there is lots of utube about it.
We have our own version of Goodwood at Laguna Seca every year.
I know, I know...but there are a shit-ton of cars that I’ve managed to lose money on, too.
Some Alfa love at VIR yesterday.
My small town outside of Cinci does an annual "Exotic Wheels & Wine" show, by invitation only. This is not your average Mustang and Camaro show.
The evolution of the 308 is obvious in this pic. Hotness.
Nice pics. And its "Alfa".
Knew that thanks. Fixed. Feh.
Only time to post the pics before my lunch hour ends. Full story at Nine!
Body prone to rusting, dodgy electrics and no space in the engine bay. Still I would love to own an Integrale Evo 2.
Over 25 years old, you can import them to the US now.
only when its written.
hopeful it involves one blue suede shoe.
Sorry for the delay, alas no info on the Blue Shoe even though it sort of matches the interior.
Saw that little Gem at a rest stop just south of Hockenheim while heading down to Oktoberfest to meet up with some Hawaii friends for Bier and a Soccer Match.
I thought of this thread and started snapping some pics when the Owner came out and through broken German and American we chatted about his ride, he said it was a '73 A112 Abarth that he brought up to and beyond '75 Standards so it's not Original and I don't believe the hood is Abarth so maybe just a souped up A112? He's a member of an "Old Timer" Club and they do annual runs to Italia with their various steeds to hang out with their Italian Club friends.
He popped the hood and it had a twin down draft Weber arrangement (Twin DCNFs I'd think) and a set of headers as well as head work and some sort over bore pistons, I think he meant pistons with the Fisting motion he made? It also had a five speed transmission and as he bounced his weight on the corners it seemed to have a pretty tight suspension.
So if it is Real or Memorex I don't know but when he fired it up it had that Sweet Small Bore Italian Brrrraaaaappppp!!! to it as well as that funky DCNF "Holy Shit You Dumped Too Much Gas Down My Throat Just Now!" initial stutter until the revs and air flow caught up.
Though I must say:
thanks anyway. thought for sure the lone shoe had a story. lol
Davide Cironi has an A112 vid. his videos are beyond great but this latest one is best yet except for his one on one interviews with the Gods themselves.
love the mystical atmosphere too:
have restored, tuned, and driven several Scorpions. my fav. mid engined car, pure joy to drive in the twistys but they are almost too noisy in stock form to carry on a conversation with a passenger above 4,000 revs, cant even imagine trying to even think in a real deal Group B machine!
he is also restoring an Alfa 75 so all you Alfa fans will for sure want to check those out.
Really appreciate that Vid! Led me into Two Hours of YouTube watching the "Killer Bees" Rallye footage....
I too have wasted hours on YT Group B footage on a few occasions. lol
I really cant say enough good things about D.Cironi and his work though.
They cost a fortune in Europe too. In my opinion not worth the money. The UR Quattro was a lot better built and quality. I've decided on waiting until the new STI comes out.
