Here's my baby in Melbourne. It may be the only one on the road in Australia.

Well, Dave Rundle's is very close. A fresh brake master cylinder is headed towards him Now, after which we're hoping to hear of it heading down the road under its own power.

Past Alfas...
59 102 Touring (first Alfa $500 running)
65 Sprint GT (2nd Alfa, $500 daily driver)
102 Sprint (never did anything with it, but wish I had)
74 Berlina (first new car - now certainly rusted into oblivion)
61 Giulietta Spider G-Prod Race Car (where is it now?)
84 Spider Veloce (rarely drove it, so sold it)
86 Quadrifoglio (Dull car - no more 115s for me)
1971 Montreal "The Full Monty". Fair winds and following seas

Current Alfas
59 102 Touring Roadster - restoration complete, enough Alfa for any rational man. Or irrational, for that matter
And past...
Two 1946 Stampe SV4C (c/n 294 "Rocinante" - wife's favorite airplane. RIP), and c/n 235 "La Bon Temps Femme" (gone to a new home, but never forgotten)
Zlin 50LA (+9 -6 gees, titanium spar, 1200 lbs, 260HP rumored to now be in Brazil)
1946 Luscombe 8A
Starduster Too (recently spotted at the Nevada City, CA airport - over 20 years and an entire continent separating it from our stewardship in Binghamton, NY)
1955 Cessna 170B (wife taught me to fly tailwheel in this)

And present...
64 Mooney M20E ("Rambo". My faithful steed for over 30 years) Nearly 50 years old, and just returned from a trip to Argentina in him
Newest in the fleet
1967 Piper Super Cub on Wipline amphibious floats (a true "all terrain vehicle")
2010 Triumph Thunderbird


You can snap roll an Alfa only one time...

Hi Mark, I had to move to Aus as they don't allow LHD in Hong Kong. Some would say that's a bit exteme, but hey, I do love this car.

Baysideboy,
I think that I would very much prefer to live in Oz than Hong Kong!

Hi all,

Here are some pictures from AR10204*00081 that Jay refers to in his post. It originally drove around in Oregon, painted black, with a black interior, before Jay got his hands on it. He owned it a couple of times, if I remember correctly, before it was sold to the UK. It featured in the August 1990 issue if Classic and Sportscar, where it was offered for sale too (see pictures in next post). Since 2000, it is driving around in Denmark. To my knowledge, there are only two 2000 Touring Spiders in Denmark (the other one has been posted in this string too). The first pictures are from taking the car on its first ride, fresh out of hibernation*. Always a great moment! The car is completely covered in dew. The last picture is from the 2014 Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix were it won second prize in the exhibition. A very proud moment for me and my son!

Gr., Pieter

PS I very much would like to get in contact with its previous owners, especially during its time in the UK. Please send me a PM if you have any information.

*Guess the AR Biscione brumates, rather than hibernates, as other serpents do?
