OK, identify this part and I'll send you a set of new SPICA style fuel line grommets!

Hint:. This is not an Italian car...

It's the back end of a car...Or the front.

It's the underside of a nose panel. I can see the retractable headlights. I just don't know what kind of car.

Spitfire, PM me with your address and I'll send you your major award.

When I walked out in the shop the other day (without my glasses) I saw it and I thought "When did we get a Shelby Cobra back end in here??".

1970 Plymouth Superbird. Original owner - bought it new for $3,000 (they were giving them away at the time). It was originally Limelighter green (you can see a bit of it) but after a year of routinely being pulled over for looking fast the owner had it repainted silver (As if an 18 1/2 foot long winged monster could ever but inconspicuous!). It was his daily driver for four years and then stored it from 1974 until this year. We're doing a nut and bolt restoration. Completed, it will be worth about $150,000 - not a bad investment although he just wants to have it to drive the grandkids around. It's crazy seeing this next to my same era Alfas. What a contrast!!

It ain't easy being green. But definitely go back to it!

Don P
Carson City, NV

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...

Thanks Rich! It was a fun search.

I'd be happy to have the winnings go to the only other contestant, Brian. Or another who can use SPICA grommets. I got right into it and missed that in post #1. I also spent about half the search time looking at Italian cars.

It is a bit of a coincidence that I took a different route to work today, so I could get tires swapped over to new wheels for the ALFA, and I passed an auction place in Westport,CT with this in the window...

Very nice shop by the way. It's nice seeing the work that comes out of there.

Back in the 70's a couple of guys robbed a bank in Las Vegas and there getaway car was a Superbird. Yes. They were easily spotted and caught. I wonder what gave them away.

1969 1750 Spider Veloce w/dual webers, 1969 1750 Berlina, 1971 1750 Spider Veloce w/ dual webers, 1985 Spider Veloce 23,000 orig. miles, {Two} 1986 Spider Veloces, 1987 Spider Veloce bought new, 1988 Quadrifoglio, 1991 164S, Plus several more. I think they are breeding.
