Andrea Zagato to be Special Guest

May 1, 2012. We are pleased to announce that Andrea Zagato will attend Alfa Canadese. If you drive an Alfa and have never heard of the coachbuilder Zagato, you must have been driving on the moon. Zagato have been making the coachwork for the most exotic Alfas since the early 1900's right up until our feature car, the TZ3 Stradale.

The company was established at the end of World War I by Ugo Zagato. After working at the Anselmo aircraft factory during the war, he put his knowledge of aircraft industry construction techniques to use in the expanding market for passenger vehicles. Zagato's cars were advanced in design and became synonymous with light weight and excellent aerodynamics. Alfa Romeo, Fiat and Lancia immediately realized the advantages of his rakish, streamlined designs. A collaboration followed which saw the creation of a series of legendary racing cars, such as the Alfa Romeo 6c 1500, then the 6c 1750 Gran Sport, and the 8c 2300. After World War II, Zagato was very much active in the new GT racing category. Avant-garde styling, together with light weight and wind-cheating lines were the main features of Zagato's models for the leading sports car manufacturers of that era - Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia, Abarth, Ferrari, Aston Martin and Bristol. In addition to cars that have been produced officially in small series, the company has also built exclusive one-offs and prototypes for other illustrious marques, such as Ford, Jaguar, MG, Rolls-Royce, Rover, Spyker and Volvo.

Andrea is the current head of Zagato following in the footsteps of his father Elio (1919–2009) who became involved with the company in the late 1940's and his grandfather Ugo, the founder of the company.

Ciao, Joe Faherty
Joe, not that I've tried any of them out but Billy Bishop City Airport, but that's the one I'd recommend. Where else are you going to be able to fly base leg going right at the CN Tower? They have Customs there too. Hamilton might work nicely too. Hamilton is not the closest, but they have a nice aviation museum.

2012 Canadese Sponser Banners

There were some great looking banners on the wall with sponser names. Joe English's Group 2 was one of the sponsers. They never got the banner. I asked about them at the convention and was told they would be sent to the respective sponsers. Delayed in Customs? The banner would look great in Joe's shop!
