Scandinavian Italy tifoso, plus the Milano sport cars by Alfa Romeo. Retired now and relaxing waiting for the Duetto season.

We start from Sweden on May 8 and go via Germany, Switzerland to Sarnico, 20km north of Brescia. Then on Thursday 12 we join the MM. Staying in Bologna and Rome and then back to Brescia agian. It will be very fun.

Hello Willie: I know you (or at least feel I do ) from your many informative posts on the alfabb site. I love your website as well. So, it is truly not a duetto, as it is a 1969, w 1750 spica. I bought it a few mos ago from a gentleman who thus far had spent 6 yrs restoring it. He works real slow, but has done all the rust repair and has it in a primer coat. He tired at the pace ( I think his wife helped him to the decision to sell). So, right now it needs a few touches of body work and paint. The engine runs, but I think it will need a rebuild. I will do this myself . I been pondering to rebuild as a 1750 or 2000. I also have a set of dell'ortos and I will have the tranny rebuilt and lightened. I did this to the 74 spider tranny by a local expert and it is perfect w no grinding even w aggressive downshifting. I'm not worried about changing the originality of the car, as resale is not an option. This will be my permanent weekend cruise car. In sunny California, I have ample opportunity to drive with the wind in my hair. (fortunately, my wife loves to as well) I'd love to drive around Europe in a vintage alfa as well, maybe there will be rentals soon. We will be visiting germant/swiz/italy in late July/ early Aug this summer, but will be back in time for the Concorso Italiano in Monterey ,California. This is the auto highlight of the year for us. I hope to have the 69 running by end of the year, but w the 74 available, I'm in no particular hurry. Thanks for the post. Ken
Great to have you on board :-))
