    Hello Mr. Peterson,

    I've seen many of your posts and was just reading your "full monty" thread, always loved the lines of the Montreal. I was hoping you could give me to your body shop, I'm up in Reno and was hoping I could find a local member with a reputable shop I could consult with regarding having my 1971 1750 GTV redone. Would love to drive down, take you to lunch and pick your brain on Alfa's.

    Thank you in advance.

    I have followed your thread for a while and am interested in being the next caretaker of your Monty. I will be in Monterey for the auctions and wanted to get an idea from you what it is going to take to buy your car. The reason I ask is that it costs $200 to get bidder credentials at Russo & Steele and yours is the only car I am interested in bidding on. If it's within my comfort range, I'll get in on the action.

    Hello don
    I sure could use your help since you know not a lot of alfas in reno/carson city area. I resurrected my 78 sedan from a backyard in reno. Mice took its toll on the wiring and im patching together the pieces.
    I havent dealt with twin webers before so im reading up and consult the bb.
    I usually hang out at the sierra invisible shield shop. Lots of intersting cars show up there. SIS | Sierra Invisible Shield | Your Clear Bra Specialists

    Hey Don,
    I'll try Doug, and then list it.
    I was building my shop up to a point where I would be a full fledged shop, rather than just a rabid GTV6 enthusiast.
    But interference by a BB member cost me several sales and a lot of my enthusiasm.
    Also, my health is failing, I have congestive heart failure and have to be very careful not to stress.
    So, getting rid of all my parts and all of my cars except for 2 GTV6's and 2 Montreals.
    Big job, as I had 30 Alfas and a tractor trailer load of parts.
    Thanks for your suggestions,

    Hi Don,
    I hope all is well with you.
    I have a 50's 2ltr engine I would like to find a home for. Has sat outside for a few years.
    I'd like $400 plus shipping.
    I am closing my shop in August, and have a ton of Alfa stuff to get rid of, mostly V6 era. I have a weathered Giullietta engine and trans too. Papajam recommended asking you for input.
    Thank you for your consideration,

    Hi there, are you still coming to Uruguay?

    My pleasure. I've seen the picture in the parts book with the curved horns but I have not seen a set like that on a Montreal in the wild. I believe I've seen some with curved horns on eBay but there are a lot of different Fiamm horns available. I removed the hood so I could pull the horns out and go through the air compressor last time. The air-horns worked for about a week, after that they quit working again. I can hear the compressor turning so I am not sure what is wrong. Time to remove the hood again; last time I repainted the underside and replaced a stripped hinge bolt.

    I've been working on the Touring Roadster but need a new fog light bulb to arrive so I can put the turn signal/fog light assembly back in the car. The drivers side headlight is out as well but I can't seem get the headlight trim ring back off. Ive had them both off before when I replaced the lights with Carello headlights.
