Concorso 2019

A lot of sustained intensity bleeding away this afternoon. Iíve been targeted at Concorso 2019 for nearly two years, and now itís successfully in the bag. Definitely the denouement with a satisfying outcome.

Iíve got a tub of pics leading up to the show, but not so many there. Too busy chatting with nice Alfa folks, and all the related merriment. Hereís a few for now, and Iíll post more as people send over their promised copies. I hope I get their stuff, as I was just too busy meeting people to point my own camera.

I put together a simple set of story cards to put near the car. Iíve found in past years Iíd be three deep with people waiting, or interrupting, with questions. So, the three cards, with pictures, worked as a sort of queuing system. Plus, by the time someone got to me, theyíd probably already had their basic questions answered, and had something more developed they wanted to ask.

The ďhorsepower delete kitĒ was more fun than I expected. Some people enjoyed the joke, while others wanted to know the technical details.

A huge thanks to the folks that volunteered to run the Alfa area, and host the banquet afterwards. Helpful before, during, and after the show.

Anyway, here goes a few days of Concorso picture posting.

Shipped the car over via Reliable Transport. Two thumbs up.

Flew over to Watsonville airport in “Rambo”, my old 1964 Mooney. He’s loaded with folding display table, bag full of story boards and tools, pop up-gazebo (not used cuz Hutson parked me right next to the club tent), chairs, horsepower delete display, and bag-o-

Stayed in a lovely bed and breakfast right on the coast in Watsonville. Quiet, cool, relaxed, beautiful.

Travel time from Carson City to Watsonville, 1 hr 8 minutes, fuel burn, 10 gallons. Arrived just as the fog bank pulled back from the end of the runway I wanted to use.

Departure this morning had to be on an IFR flight plan. Climbed into blue skies ten minutes after lift off, at about 4,000’. Made it to Sac in 38 minutes to look at a rusty Super 1300, and another 40 minutes from there back to Carson.

Got a few things to finish on the car, but it won’t take long. Time for a break, and then another goal.

Several times I thought maybe the award was a “thank you for not being red”.

Daggummit! I was standing right behind your car, admiring it and talking to some guy about it, when you were waiting to drive it to the stage to accept your award.

I had no idea it was you. Congratulations! Perhaps we will meet in person some day.

Sorry we misconnected. I certainly would have enjoyed meeting. Except for a quick lunch and a pee break, I was at the car fielding questions the whole day.

Yeah... Apart from being too old, too gray, and too broken, that Augusta went straight to the top of my wanna-have list.

This was, I think, my 4th Concorso. I’ve never once had the time to tour the field, take pics, and chat up people about their interesting cars.

Maybe if I can find some oddball Italian motorcycle I can go over and become a tourist?

I didn’t get a single pic of my display area. Just too busy. I expect to get some from “Maryann”, and another fellow whose name escapes at the moment. I wonder if it’ll trigger a tidal wave of story boards, thereby wrecking the spartan beauty of grass and machinery-as-art? Hope not.

Fun pics!

Does anyone know what the little red & blue #48 is at the top of the page? Fiat-based? Abarth? Moretti?

it as one of one Osca MT4. Designed by Giovanni Michelotti and built by Vignale. This is s/n 1120. It has significant in period racing history, including at Le Mans.

Shown in all-blue livery before, it received a sympathetic refreshening in the red/ blue color scheme. One of my favorite cars there this week and frequently displayed at Concours on the Avenue, Quail and CI.
