A legend passes away-

Alan Ward has just informed me that his former long time partner Don Deane passed away on Monday in Florida. Donald was the "silent" partner in this relationship- beavering away in the bowels of the shop -making it happen. To most he probably seemed shy and even gruff on occasion but once you knew him or he opened up with a story a smile would soon appear. I was lucky enough to spend some time with him during our Firehawk campaign -sometimes on road trips moving the car around. He loved cars, not just Alfas and there was little he did'nt know about them. I never knew him to shy away from any task. He is someone I will never forget- a fixture in the Southern California Alfa "scene" and a great human being. Fred Schueddekopp.
