Don,
We have subscribed. I have always enjoyed your enthusiasm and kind spirit when directed at the newcomers to this BB. Life is what happens when we are making other plans! While you did not intend to mount another project, the essence of a life long learner boils deep in your soul! The excitement surrounding the AR brand has never been so bright. Some watch dancing with the stars and American Idol- we watch AlfaBB. Good Karma will surround your new build proportionate to your passion. Thanks for sharing.

You've never seen me dance the Argentine tango with an inappropriately dressed young lady. Alfas are just a minor distraction between engagements in the latter.

Like I said- life is what happens when we are making other plans, and there ain't no such thing as inappropriate dress in the context of ladies and the tango, depending on the location and audience. Nevertheless we wait in eager anticipation of your colorful posts.

As I sit here alone on a Saturday night, with grandson off with his buds, and wife having moved out (alas, it happens), I find myself reflecting on the joys of life. Alfas? Well, sort of, but they are inanimate objects without a true soul. Tango? Well, yes, but perhaps more ephemeral and ethereal, and easily lost. Perhaps this thread is about finding and rejoining the two in a search for a lasting love?

The first link is a typical street tango in Buenos Aires. A city I love, and where I've danced many times. You might think this is choreographed, but it probably is not. Clearly, the couple have been dancing together for a long time, but a major part of a great tango is when two people are completely connected in an improvisational dance. Flesh wounds are possible.


This second video is a couple, "Nito and Elba", both in their mid 80s. I studied with them back in 03 and 04. They've been a couple, and dancing together for roughly 50 years.


Perhaps if all of you showed your wives these videos, and said "honey, if you'll let me do another Alfa, I'll learn tango with you, and we'll still be dancing passionately this way in our 80s, things might happen more smoothly in your Alfa-lives.

Bob arrived via the eastern Nevada brothels

Bob Fernald arrived today, dragging 1488 behind. His trip planning was pretty hilarious. From Las Vegas, he headed due north to Ely, then due West to Carson City. This would be like traveling from Houston to El Paso via Dallas. He hasn't quite related all of the details of his stay in a very fresh, clean hotel out on Hwy 50 (the world's loneliest highway, and featured in "Vanishing Point). I'd like to think he had a nice, happy night.

The car is pictured below. I still believe it's likely to be the best starting point for a 102 resto I've seen. Low mileage, away from the sun (original interior vinyl still supple and unstained), and apparently complete.

We had pizza and adult beverages, and discussed our shared history in the Alfa world until bedtime. That would be 9pm for gentlemen of our age.

He seemed enamored of my family-room side board, being a 1960 Alfa 2000 engine and trans mounted in a lit display case. I think he actually took a nap sitting in front of it, basking in the LED glow it was emitting.

So, the project grows one step forward.

You are right Don, the car seams to be a very good base. But where is this door ?

I don't know if you well understand me, I have you Gear Box Bell Housing.

The door is in the back seat.

I've had three or four bell housings offered, so probably won't need to have yours shipped over from Europe. Thank you, though.

Bob is heading back toward home today. Good company.

Hi Don,

Congratulations on your new find. It looks like a great start! I am sure there will be plenty of interesting events to keep us all entertained.

I am sorry to hear... "wife having moved out (alas, it happens)". It's been almost 14 years for me; I vaguely recall that day and the pain leading up to it. Things are better now and I feel fortunate in many ways.

Perhaps in my case it was a combination of Alfa's and tournament bass fishing. If you ever feel the need to take a break and get away from it all; you are always welcome here. Now that my kids have all grown up and moved on there are plenty of extra rooms. Pick you up at Cobb International Airport with a boat and tackle, we can head straight for the 'healing waters'. It is not all about catching fish; that is only a small part of fishing. Maybe you can show me how to adjust the confounded Montreal Spica while you are here too.

In the following song just substitute Alfa for fish; they may both be four letter words to a woman...;-)

My father had a wooden plaque behind is wet-bar at our home. It said "God does not subtract from a man's allotted time that which is spent fishing."

Ayup.

I recall a song from my youth by the Thirteenth floor elevators called "You're gonna miss me". I think powerful chemical were a significant factor in that band.

There's always a story. In this case, she's seeking therapy for the sudden loss of her previous husband, and some other compounding tragedies in her life. She may be back. She might not. When one goes off into solitude to rediscover one's self, the results can be unexpected.

This thread, much like my others, is likely to have subplots and side stories. Thread digressions are always welcome. Just play nice.

I've committed three days per week to flight instructing. It results in being paid a nice hourly wage for taking out my frustrations and pent up rage on unsuspecting students. Or, perhaps it results in me being paid a nice wage to learn the humility and sense of satisfaction of helping someone achieve a worthy goal, such as keeping themselves and their friends alive.

Or, maybe it's both?

Alfa dismantling begins tomorrow.

I've also got the oven pretty much finished for experiments in plexiglass molding for the POFC hard top rear window.

There are some levels of grief that are especially hard and relationship troubles are at the top of my list. There never seem to be easy answers. Maggie and I celebrated 50 years together last month. Most long-term relationships and marriages are hardly perfect but if I had to think of one cementing factor that contributes to longevity it has to be respect for the other's space. From our first date (where she had to push-start my TR4---longer story there) Maggie always liked and never complained about my car adventures---or misadventures. Looking back, I think all 110 pounds of her pushing that recalcitrant TR4 across that parking lot while dressed to the nines, was a litmus test. Instead of being pissed, she laughed about it all the way back home. I kinda felt like things might work out.

Mark: My dad was a lifelong bass fisherman. Alas, I am not although I nonetheless made time to go fishing when ever I visited home. I think my dad most enjoyed the solace he found in being out on the lake, usually alone, but sometimes with a friend. One day, we were out on Lake Ouachita, his favorite place in the whole world. It was a splendid fall day; crisp, clear and the lake was was like glass. For a long time I'd wanted to tell him something that I'd been thinking about. I put my rod down and said, "I want to tell you something. Everything you ever told me was true". He smiled a little at that, pleased that I'd finally figured that out. A few years later my dad died and every time I think about that splendid day on the lake, I'm glad that I said what I said.

Another minor diversion: Astor Piazzola's tango music.

That's a very nice piece. Although languorishly slow, very much a dance piece. This makes sense when you accept that the essence of tango is expressed in moments of stillness more than during motion.

You'll note that the four dancers in the video were all men. Although in the modern area, single-gender partners are what you might assume, the origins of tango date to the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. In that era, mixed-gender dancing was contrary to Italian cultural norms, so only men-men, and woman-woman dancing was tolerated.

I personally much prefer dancing with a sensuous lady.

Judging from his biography, so did Piazzola.

You know, I just went back and look at that video. That was a interesting bit of editing the BBC did, cutting period a period film (30's maybe?) into the studio video. They even got the tempo right. Now I wonder if they showed the period film to Piazzola so that he could match the original dance tempo? I'm guessing that's what happened. Whether by luck or design, it's very nice work.

Dismantling

I started taking things apart today.

Most of have done a project or two, often advertised as "low miles", "rust free", etc. Normally, we discover the truth fairly quickly.

I got all of the boxes and stuff unloaded out of the passenger compartment and trunk beginning the process of sorting things out into brightly labeled plastic tubs. Lots more of that yet to go, but it's a calming exercise.

The only thing I unscrewed today was the license plate light/trunk latch assembly. It instantly struck me than none of the four 7mm nuts were frozen in place, popping loose from the exactly correct degree of tightness, and finger-spinning straight off. I have NEVER had nuts come off of a 50+ year old, long dormant Alfa that easily before. Whoa, the plastic lens has no crack!?!?

Then I pulled some tape off of the taillight mounting area, wisely put there a lont time ago to slow down any mouse and moisture ingress.

That's when something else struck me.

You've all noted that I don't really want to have to repaint this car red, but I might if that was original. All of the areas I uncovered so far are white. Have I gotten lucky and gotten another grigio biacca car?

The carpets are all red. I've never seen a red 102 with red carpet. This would have been the general color used with grigio biacca. Oddly, this car has the floors covered with matching red carpet, on top of the original rubber mats. The carpet appears to match the carpet on the sills and trans tunnel, which is where the original carpet was placed. I'm wondering if floor carpets might have been an optional add-on?

The seats and door vinyl are all black. This would be the norm for a red exterior. So, I'll just have to wait until the museo finally responds with the recorded truth. Fingers crossed.

Another surprised. The spare tire tub seems totally unrusted and sound, at least when inspected from the inside. I have yet to crawl around with something pokey to get a measure of the underside.
