Very, very nice Super. I cant wait to do the country trips in mine again. I had heard of Luigi, was from the Alfa factory, based in Adelaide, worked on the Autodelta cars that were over here? Is he still around?
Dave I must admit I too am more a beer in the garage kind of guy than wine. Though at night its wine all the way!

Sorry to pirate your thread Derek, re Luigi (but it is relevant, see last photo). Yes still active. Operates Italservice in Bowden, an Adelaide suburb, since 1977. With his right-hand man, Mario Labrosciano they specialise in Restoration of Classic Italian vehicles and race and rally preparation, Italian mostly. Some shop, Wow! Lou allowed me to take photos, a couple here. The Miura is the ex-Twiggy P400S, the Stratos would have to be the best I have seen, EVER. Look at the under-car photo, not a scratch,and that's the same throughout. It is original, not restored. Lou still drives his Giulia Super to work daily!
Dave, look forward to catching up in Tassie next week. Will PM.

Gosh, wish we had such a specialist restoration business here. Basically one is on one's own here, with a little help where required from a few places. Fantastic looking cars there.

Not a problem Gavin, as per other PMs looking forward to catching up.

Derek, at the rate you are going with yours, you should indeed be able to head out for a run in the newly restored Super, way before mine is finished. Oh if only house rennos could be over and I could save a few $$$ for the Super. I just need to be patient, and work harder on those rennos.

new cars

Hi Derek,
I've just got three new Giulia's. Two old Supers and a Nuova 1300 Super. The old Supers have/ will yield some interesting little bits an pieces like old Marchall bi-ode headlights and little bits of trim that are worth keeping. The Nuova has had an crash but looks fixable. I now have a good 1600 & a 1300 with Solex 45's. The other two bodies are not savable, however we can keep some of the better ones on the road for a bit longer. Am now looking for any others for resto or as parts cars. I will let Barry Edmunds know of those that go to heaven for the records. Keep up the good work as the more we know of the more we can save.
Jim

Wow, did you get all three together as a package? Any of the chassis numbers close to mine? I did notice a pair for sale on the W.A. Club site.I didn't know we got nuovas in Australia, and a 1300 with 45s?!

Yes Soo, that is baaad photoshopping.

I went to visit the car today but the battery was flat so don't have any pics. Looks like the sills will be finished off later this week. It was also nice to see a friend's project Super in there for a bit of straightening.

Just because I like to put a pic up with each post, anyone use one of these rubber straps to hold their tool bag? Got a photo of it in place? I just found it in a drawer.

Yeah, I haven't seen one in use either. I guess I should check to see where it could attach to.

Thanks for adding your car to my website too, it is my favourite coloured Super! When I was thinking about changing the colour of mine it would have been something like yours.

Sounds good Scott. I will have a better idea about the Nuova then as I can crawl under it.

A pleasure, Derek. It wa the least I could do as you've certainly spent so many tens of hours on your website, which is such a great resource for us all.

Cheers,
-Peter

Hi Derek,

My 1300TI has the rubber strap you are referring to. Will take a pic and post in the next day or two if someone doesn't beat me to it.

This might be a clue you've already found with your strong google-fu (where do you find all those great factory images - seriously ) : http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/anyt...hat-strap.html

I had one of those straps floating around the duetto parts box, but could never find a way to hook it on either....

I'm a convert to those cargo nets the newer cars have - clip them across the floor and they're fantastic for throwing loose bits and pieces in the boot and not having them clanging from one side to the other ... I found a good sized one at autobarn / super cheap a while back - excellent (particularly for bottles of home brew )

But I digress, as I am wont to do.

Cheers,
