Hmm, didn't know that they might still be there in some form or other. Haven't talked with Lino or Carlo lately. Not long ago, Lino said he had a pristine and complete rear bumper/fairing for a 91S to sell to me, so he was supposed to deliver it in the following week, but never heard from him. Guess I will have to call and see what happened.

Don't have Carlo's cell number, if he has one, I assume he does, so haven't called to see how he is doing, and whether he was ever able to get his hobby shop squared away. Don't need anything from him at this point in time, but I like to keep in touch, having known him since 1965, when I bought his 64 Giulia Sprint GT. I hate to call the guys at home, although they do live close to our house, and have picked up and dropped off our cars now and then when some service I couldn't really do, or didn't want to do was necessary (always wished I had a lift of some sort, but they are costly, alas, and no longer like to crawl under a car raised up very high on jack stands).

I was told that Enumclaw meant "Meeting Place of the Evil Spirits" due to its proximity to a smoking vent on Mt Rainier (or something like that.) Carlo and Lino reassembled as 275GTS for me that was delivered to them in boxes. A truly amazing experience that produced a fantastic car. Alfa of Tacoma is/was a national treasure for exotic Italian car owners sorry to see shutting down.

They took care of all of my Alfas ever since I bought his car in 65. Most trustworthy guys I've had the pleasure to know. I never felt I was cheated in any way by either guy. Carlo always said he would take care of my Alfas into the future, and indeed so far he has. I pray it will continue as long as I can drive. At 77, a few more years hopefully, lol.

It is a shame that they are closing down but I guess everyone has to retire at some point.

Same thing happened to the Alfa Auto Clinic in New York.

Thanks

Heard that Pete Lovely ran a privately entered Lotus 49 in formula one in the sixties, and that Carlo served as his mechanic. Way different times from now.
