Grieg me old buddy glad to have you over on the BB. People,you can learn a lot from Grieg, he knows his cars and especially his Alfas. I know the machines and the designer you are talking about . I once had the pleasure of driving a 1936 Talbot-lago that was styled by them. They were rather rudely known in Some circles and 'Phoney and Flashy".
Speak to you later,
Anyone know what an Amilcar is. I used to own the remains of one. They were a small Fench sporting car of the 1920's-30's . Most of their output was engine of less than 1000 cc, but they did make some amazing 8 and 6 cylinder racing machines and sometimes gave old man Bugatti a run for his money. I love that interwar era for Motor Racing. I went to Brookland twise last year to worship( my idea of a cathedral,synagogue etc). Standing on the outerbanking where so many great machines of the past roared around was a very special moment for me. Anyones else paid homage to this special place ?
