Oooo, here's my chance to hijack this thread and make it into a thread of attacks and counter attacks.

Only One

And I m the only author here who can share the big work that represent my book Alfa Romeo TZ.
All the race results, hundreds of period photos, all the chassis number with mostly the original licence plate and the garantee that the plate belong to that chassis number as I have most of the originals papers of the TZ.

Also, I receive from Zagato himself a introduction + the congratulations for the job done.Even the Museum Alfa Romeo didn t have this research.
I also receive from them the congratulations of the manager of the Museum.

The details of the chassis number can be seen free of charge to www.classicscars.com where we have the biggest database of chassis number in the world.
Regards

I think that the "attack" that Mr. Olczyk has received is somewhat unjustified. I have read the book "Alfa Romeo TZ". It contains an awful lot of work presenting every TZ and TZ2 ever built (or at least, the major number of them), the race results of these cars with the SN's of each car and has a lot of very good photos inside. I can't comment on the data or whether the originality of the cars presented there is true or not but i cannot oversee the comments inside the book by Mr. Andrea Zagato and Mr. Elio Zagato. For me, this is a guarantee for the value of the data contained in the book. And i can't believe that Mr. Elio or Mr. Andrea Zagato know less than all of us on the subject. I can't tell for sure if the Asardo was the progenitor of the TZ. But Mr. Zagato has not checked it prior congratulating the author of the book? For me, the only disadvantage of the book is that it not contains a lot of written history. It would certainly be better if it had more text inside.

Sorry, but I think it is "inappropriate" to use this forum to try and sell YOUR books, other than by paying for a banner ad or making some sort of agreement with the owners of this site....REGARDLESS of the content or validity of the books! (Anyone should be free to discuss THEIR OPINION) of any book...

I have an easy solution to this:

1. Click USER CP.
2. Under Miscellaneous click Buddy/Ignore Lists.
3. Under Ignore List add dretceterini and olczyk.
4. Click Update Ignore List.

Now the unruly children are all gone

Ciao,

Mr. Olczyk, if you want my honest opinion i would say that the best thing to do is to ask from Mr. Elio or Andrea Zagato about the value of the book. Then ask Mrs. Ruocco for the same matter.
And then ALL of us will have a real and indisputable guarantee. This would put an end to the matter for ever.
And i DON'T know where the truth lies at the moment!

To moderators:
I am sorry that i continued the argument here and i promise that this is my last post concerning the subject.

I think that both Stu and Philippe posses a large amount of vintage Alfa Romeo information and that they both are what I consider EXPERTS in their fields. Unfortunately they canít stop arguing long enough to share any of it, but thatís just MY OPINION!

PS - This is a public forum and if you do not like the content of the thread or the forum click the little red button on the top right of your browser window or do as GianniB suggested and place someone on your IGNOR list and it will be like they never existed.

What I believe

The big big difference between me and Stu is that I wrote the TZ book, spend thousands of hours searching the infos, meet old drivers, and on the top of it, I had own a fews TZ and TZ2 myself who are considered by the real collectors as the cream of the cream.
Now, I will bet any amounts that Stu cannot make the difference between a real one and a fake one.Me I restore mecanickly chassis 750075 who is considered by the Alfa people in Italy as the most original TZ race car in the world.

It seems what you guys are saying is:

ME!!!

ME, ME!!!

ME, ME, ME!!!

ME, ME, ME, ME!!!

ME, ME, ME, ME, ME!!!



What I'd love you to say is:

Alfa!!!

Alfa, Alfa!!!

Alfa, Alfa, Alfa!!!

Alfa, Alfa, Alfa, Alfa!!!

Alfa, Alfa, Alfa, Alfa, Alfa!!!


... but I certainly would not have a problem with the occasional Romeo, Zagato, Nardi, Biscotti, Grappa, etc.
