New Owner Introduction, 1957 Giulietta

I just purchased a 1957 Giulietta, and was told this is the most active forum supporting this model. This is a vintage race car, which has been stripped of most of it's "street parts." That's alright with me because I intend on using it only as a race car, and will sell it on as such if I need to move on.

It's a current VSCCA/VRG/SVRA car, so I don't plan on making any major changes until I'm comfortable with it and determine if there are any things that don't suit my driving capabilities (which are very limited).

I do have a few potential near-term needs:
(1) Alfa CR gearbox
(2) Center grill, as this car apparently got a little friendly with the tail of another car at some point in its racing history.

Thanks in advance. Looking forward to being a member of this community.

John

It might be interesting to drive it to the convention on a set of street tires/wheels.
I'd like to see if I can add turn signals and a horn so I can get it registered for the street. On my westfield, the turn signal is just a toggle switch and a flasher relay. I don't think MA requires much more than that on an old car to pass inspection.
