Bumping this up. A month away. It's typically a great swap.

I'm planning on flying over from Carson City, and bringing a fellow who is undertaking the restoration of a 71 1750 GTV that his father bought new!

Normally, Larry has been good about picking me up at the Tracy airport, but he'll probably be busy playing host. Any chance someone could come snag us and shuttle us to Larry's? I'll be bringing a collection of Montreal, Touring 2000, and a few 2600 bits.

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...

Uber!
As organizer, I'll probably be running around like the proverbial chicken with my head cut off. But I'm sure we can figure something out.
Send me a PM, I'll give you my cell phone and either I'll run out or we can dispatch someone.

Hey Don, I can pick you up in the beater van. Plenty of room for parts and people. A bit short on aesthetics but quite functional.

Andrew,

I'll Be Coming Down With Various 750 & 101 Series Parts. I Didn't Attend The Swap Meet In Marin (how was that?) Earlier This Year; it rained last year and I didn't want to deal with it this year - June In California Should Be Dry!

Bob... cool. And thanks Andrew.

If you ever see my "Whatatruck", you'd revise your definition of "beater"

Appreciate the help.

I'm sure Larry will be too busy to run out to the airport and as [dis]organizer I probably will be too. Horsewidower, are you volunteering? Or someone else?
Like I say, even in Tracy I'm sure there's Uber/Lyft, which can't be much for the distance.

Assuming the weather is on our side, I'll be bringing Joe from Reno, who is just starting the resto of his dad's 71 GTV. Essentially, in the family from new. It is unmolested, original, tiny bits of rust, and destined to a very nice example.

I drove the Whatatruck over to Sac and Stockton last week, picking up some trued-up wheels for my 102. Came back over Hwy 88 through the Sierra Nevada. Beautiful drive, but high and a bit scary.

The next morning I went to drive the truck to Costco and the brake pedal went straight to the floor.

Phew!!!!
