Alfa Romeo Argentina book

Looks interesting, I think it was first published in August of 2005 so I bet some people already know about this book.

After checking, indeed, I apologize for having confused with a thread on TNF where the book was commented.

But I'm instead sure that BB member 'Cris Bertschi' is one of the two authors.

On their site, you find a presentation of the book.

Usual disclaimer: albeit I know the authors, I'm in no way involved in any interest or business.

Ufff... would love to be able to say... but I really don´t know.
We hope we have ready Bugatti - Argentina for the end of the year... and then Ferrari in 2007, and hopefully Maserati in 2008.

Thanks for your interest!
Regards.

Ok, thanks. I know someone who's restoring an A6G and I thought he might appreciate some info. Although, considering how quickly the restoration is going, 2008 might be just right. It doesn't seem like there are many good books on Maserati, which is somewhat understandable.
Thanks for putting the books together.

Thanks for the compliments.
Is it a Series I or SII?
Any relationship with Argentina?

Kind regards.

I think its A6GCS 1948 - S1. Looks like the following:


As far as I know the history of the car is a bit murky so I'm not really sure where it has been or if it has been in Argentina at all. I just thought it might be interesting to see if the book you were working on had any info/ photos of similar cars.

Yes! It will feature two similar cars.
2007/2010 raced by Carlos Lostaló (there is a picture in our Alfa Romeo Argentina book side by side with 8C 2900 "the whale") and s/n 2001 driven by Miranda from Brazil (also pictured in our book in Mar del Plata with Mieres un his 8C 2300 Monza)

Regards.
Cris.-

PS: and the s/n of the car in the picture is?

I'm not sure what the s/n of that car is, I used the picture from the following website.

Do you know of any early A6s that later wound up in Florida?
