Hey if I wanted to conform, I would drive the same kind of car as everybody else does, right?



Oh, that's right I do drive the same kinds of cars you all do.....

Ms. B, I've never thought you one to criticize without first knowing whereof you speak. Where did this complaint come from?

SNO members are those who ask to join and who agree to our rules, which basically say that we like Italian cars and don't judge what owners do to them. We're pretty hardcore rebels that way, refusing to insist on the originality of someone else's car.

As the membership list shows, we do have women on the membership list: http://www.gwandrw.com/sno-membership-list/. More are welcome if they will but ask, as the men have done.

You'll also note that we are endorsed by my Granddaughter, who though she is not yet two, already has an affection for Italian cars: http://www.gwandrw.com/sno-stickers-...-how-to-getem/

I hope this explanation is enough to encourage you to consider joining SNO yourself.

Thanks Bob. I've got a lot of new photos to add and some new art. I'll update your info, too.

Geez, Gary,

When I looked 6 years ago, I either didn't see any females or they had names that were not recognizable as generally female. I kind of remember going and looking at a list somewhere.

Considering my 73 Berlina is not stock with its incomplete Weber conversion and truly specialized to make it fit, plus the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Bumper Sticker that certainly was not manufacturer installed, certainly makes it non-orginale.

I did have thoughts of applying as the Director of the Pat Braden non-originale Alfa Library.

I wasn't complaining, simply, stating what I had noticed, believe me you'll know when I'm complaining and expect immediate action -- there are a few here on the bb who can testify to that.

Hi Alfasrule. Here's the link for SNO stickers; that's all we have for now: Scuderia Non Originale (SNO) Stickers & Badges ? How to Get?em | The Williams Family ... Now and Then

What I need from you to join is an email to sno at gwandrw dot com that contains your real name and where you live. I'll then send you my Paypal info if you want stickers.

Greetings Cheryl. I did not mean to remind you of an old misunderstanding. I saw this ancient thread last night and decided to update the SNO links because I revised the SNO web pages a year ago. The links are all I added last night; no commentary.

Women have always been part of SNO and have been on our membership list from the very first year of our existence, which was 2006, three years before this thread was begun. All anyone, male or female, needs to do is ask via email -- and let me know they agree to the rules on the web page. We will happily welcome you as a member.

Seems the most apt thread to put this in?

I've always liked early Alfa's and used to have a few, but the classics have gone to crazy pricing.
An utterly project Giulia is now over $10K!
I know where to find one, but not the time and lump sum money for it.

So I'm musing that I've got a beat up round-tail Triumph Spitfire Mk. III with title, and a complete 2.0 Alfa Romeo drive-train on webers.
The Spitfire body IS by Michelotti and pretty light.
Thinking this could be fun in a no it's NOT another "I wanna' be a Cobra clone" sort of way.
Adequate power and lots of the right sort of mechanical noise without being too overpowered.

I have a complete Spitfire drive-train with overdrive and GT-6 brakes for an upgrade so of course that would be the simple route to go, giving me two mostly stock Spitfires.
No longer enjoy "Stock" so much as it's become an expensive PITA for upkeep.

I once wanted to put these Alfa bits into a Bug-Eye Sprite with a Kellison front end.
Time seems to have nixed that idea as a Bug-Eye shell is no longer cheap and Kellison front ends are now made of Unicorn horn.

I'm already working on my Trick-6, Spitfire 1500 (Probably for sale in the spring), a '68 El Camino, and '74 Alfa Spider when not keeping the Land Rover Classic running.
So I know I need another project like a hole in the head!
But this keeps calling to me, I find myself checking CL looking for useful parts.

Thinking to keep just enough of the original chassis to retain the title and put the skins on a space frame structure.
Gut it like a race car for a true roadster, it would be very light.

Thoughts?

I have access to a few old Ford Model A cars. I have had this crazy idea about building a hot rod using the Model A body and frame equipped with a suspension and drive-train from either an old rusty Spider, or perhaps a similarly rusty and scrapped GTV6. Either engine would provide plenty of power for a hot-rod used for cruising and shows, and the suspension and brakes would make the car handle MUCH better than most other similar builds using American guts.

Rev high! Alex 'Sandor' Csank

I have this rusty old Humber Super Snipe, I bought while on a (snipe) hunt years ago. I'm thinking of putting a supercharged Alfa twin spark engine in it but am worried about the tranny's ability to handle all that power. Do you think I could mate it to a Tremec 5-spd, maybe with a Chevy pickup rear end? The plan is to drive the finished car down to Tijuana for a traditional 1950's tuck n'roll upholstery job, using shiny vinyl like you'd find in a really cool old railroad car diner from the period. Not sure of the body color yet. Flat black is sounding rat rodish, but that feels almost like a mixed metaphor, given the 1950's theme interior. What do you think, Alex?
