One of Ten Touring Roadsters World Wide! Post photographs here please

A poster on this forum recently suggested that there were not more than 10 Two-Liter Roadsters in running condition -world wide!

I believe that 3663 Touring Roadsters were built over a four year period. In my opinion there are literally hundreds, possibly thousands of "Old" Two-Liters still in running condition, world wide. Everyday more of these beauties are being restored!

Lets post photographs of every 'Type 102' Two-Liter out there, with Serial Numbers. I'd like to start with a photo of 'The Two Liter Lover's car' aka Jay, out of respect for his over 55 years of Two-Liter experience and dedication to this model:
Roadster: AR10204*00126
Berlina: AR10202*00900*
Sprint: AR10205*00019

Cool.

I'm happy to be humbly wrong . I even know of one in NZ, but I don't believe I have seen it yet.

I have not seen that one yet either. A thousand Two-Liters may be possible...a couple thousand may be a bit of an exaggeration

I know of others that I have not pictures of...

There is a very fine line between ‘hobby’ and ‘mental illness.’

Might i suggest we all post our serial numbers with our pictures? Otherwise, we might reasonably assume that all the red ones are the same car. Also, if any have been written off, that might be noted as well. We wouldn't want to cheat in our effort to document the yuge count of 10 operating 102s. Hopefully, owners of Sprints and Sedans will chime in as well.

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...

Seen elsewhere, but just to play along with this thread.

Mark, are you keeping count?

The red one is Dave "doggadave" Rundle's, very nicely converted to RHD. He's currently distracted with some medical treatments, but when he resurfaces we'll get his serial number.

We are at 26 cars already, although we don't have serial numbers for all of them and we have just started to scratch the surface!

That reminds me a little of the planets history. According to 'A Short History of Nearly Everything' by Bill Bryson; the "Watery Planet" (well there is more water on the surface, >70% than earth, <30% -on Earth) which has been here for something like 13.8 billion years. He said if Earth was an apple and from the surface to the core represented 13.8 billion years; man (or our time on Earth) hasn't been around long enough to make it through the layer of time representing the skin!

The main thing that impresses me so far is the quality of the cars represented. I am sure there is a 'big ratio' of nice driving cars to those that need a restoration!

Keep em coming,

Mark

When people asking about the running numbers. I guess that there is around a 100 2000 Touring spiders that still is running.
Our 2000 Touring 1960 participated in the anniversary in Milano 2010 and picture is from the Mille Miglia 2012. On the tour Europe 2012 we drove from Denmark and back totally around 8000km, within 3 weeks
