I think we might see our way to making some allowances for you Don, especially if you keep us so nicely entertained with some Montreal engine pictures

I've really enjoyed your restoration of your latest project, stunning colour combination, sympathetic & forward thinking restoration with the Weber conversion. I'd certainly like to have been in a position to hand over a large cheque and park her in my garage

All the best with the show

Good luck Don! Have great weather, a lot of fun and meet some great people. Give us some feedback on the great yellow color. Check my next post on my adventure there in 2016. Mark

My 2016 Concorso Italiano visit with my restored 1960 Giulietta spider veloce (there's always bigger fish in the sea), and they lost all the paperwork for judging! But it was fun.

Car loaded, and off to back load several Porsches described as “not suitable for street use”.

I can see the several dozen exceptions to perfection, but I’m not gonna worry about it. Just a few administrative elements to attend to, pack the plane, and I’ll be ready for an early Friday departure.

What could possibly go wrong?

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
Oops. Add to the "present" list, 10204 01488, 2000 Touring Roadster project

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 40 years) Over 55 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

I beg your pardon?

I’m almost finished with the story boards. Got laundry to do. A teenage boy in full hormonal meltdown. A tournament bridge game tomorrow with one of my regular partners, who had a triple bypass 10 days ago. His playing will be enhanced by oxycontin.

Flying is about the easiest and least stressful thing I do.

As an ex-military pilot that is precisely why I said it. It was ingrained in us to take nothing for granted. Sorry if it came across wrong... but those things are ingrained . i was just looking out for your safety under duress.

Ah... No duress. Maintain an even strain. I’ve had “Rambo”, my 64 M20E Mooney for exactly 40 years and three engines... the last one of which I rebuilt. Flying him to Monterey has far less stress than taking the Mazda down to Walmart.

To end the day, I ended up in an unexpected meeting with the high school football coach. My hormonally chaotic 16 year old sophomore grandson just got moved up to Varsity. First game six days after Concorso. Coach likes his combination of extreme fitness and feloniously violent tendencies. He dead lifts 415 and can clean 225.

The boy is also first chair Euphonium AND Bass Trombone in the Senior Wind Ensemble, and first chair Bass Trombone in the Jazz Big Band.

Interests and talents not often found in the same body. When combined with a criminal psychology...... watch out!

BTW, Div... I’ve had ten inflight engine failures in single-engine aircraft. I no longer assume “if”. I’ve gotten expert at having one eyeball flying the plane, and the other assessing the merits of landable fields within gliding range.
