My favorite pictures from the event

Here are some of my favorite pictures I took at the event.

Ron Tonkin, who after some illness just got strong enough gave us a tour of his garage, was a wonderful host and sponsor of the event. Although still fairly weak, one could hear the deep passion for cars in his voice and in the stories he told us (the yellow 330 GTS he owns since new is his favorite car of the collection).

Maintainer of a 2600 SZ register (not the Dutch one).

Forgive me if there's a slight bias towards cars from BC and/or the 2600 Touring Spider my friend Tim Wyman (owner) and I drove down from Vancouver, Canada. The car won First in Class (easy as it was the only car in the class) and the People's Choice Award -- both reduced the pain and frustration encountered during the restoration considerably. A big Thank You from Tim for everybody who voted for his car. he probably won't get the grin off his face for a week or two.

Thanks for sharing the photos, Ruedi.
If I had thought ahead, I would have made certain to park the Jr. Z close to BC cars all week long!!!

Can someone tell me the color (Grigio Metalizzato?) of that Touring Spider. It is absolutely beautiful. My Super is close to being sprayed and that the color!

The interior is black vinyl.

We figured out he'll have to do the seat bottoms again because the foam is too soft (after 3 hours our bums started to hurt).

(Drive faster!!)

Higher speed = Less seat time

He, he. We would have done that if traffic and speed limits would have allowed it. Much of driving north on I-5 on Sunday afternoon felt like a parking lot until we reached Seattle. Driving to Portland took 7 hrs; driving back 9-1/2. Car and driver were the same (and border crossing wait into Canada was about 1/2 hour less).

More Pre-convention Tour

This is a section a the Maryhill Loop road with a Giulia Spider coming up the hill. We showed a group of skateboarders that it could be as much fun going up as down.

Congrats!

In the second picture, you are parked next to Gene Brown's Montreal (easily recognized by hs quad pipes and missing hub centres). He drove a 4,500 mile/3 week roundtrip to get to the convention ... in his Montreal! That's Grand Touring if you ask me

Did someone ask for more Alfa photos?
The last one is under the hood of the supercharged GTV6 featured in the June issue of Alfa Owner.
