They're just sharing the same garage.

Of course, their paths will never cross.

I think the problem is the word “Duetto”. If you’d said “84 S3”, some of us might have said “OK, what tranny and rear end?”

Don P
Carson City, NV

Past Alfas...
59 102 Touring (first Alfa $500 running)
65 Sprint GT (2nd Alfa, $500 daily driver)
102 Sprint (never did anything with it, but wish I had)
74 Berlina (first new car - now certainly rusted into oblivion)
61 Giulietta Spider G-Prod Race Car (where is it now?)
84 Spider Veloce (rarely drove it, so sold it)
86 Quadrifoglio (Dull car - no more 115s for me)
1971 Montreal "The Full Monty". Fair winds and following seas

Current Alfas
59 102 Touring Roadster - restoration complete, enough Alfa for any rational man. Or irrational, for that matter
Oops. Add to the "present" list, 10204 01488, 2000 Touring Roadster project

And past...
Two 1946 Stampe SV4C (c/n 294 "Rocinante" - wife's favorite airplane. RIP), and c/n 235 "La Bon Temps Femme" (gone to a new home, but never forgotten)
Zlin 50LA (+9 -6 gees, titanium spar, 1200 lbs, 260HP rumored to now be in Brazil)
1946 Luscombe 8A
Starduster Too (recently spotted at the Nevada City, CA airport - over 20 years and an entire continent separating it from our stewardship in Binghamton, NY)
1955 Cessna 170B (wife taught me to fly tailwheel in this)

And present...
64 Mooney M20E ("Rambo". My faithful steed for over 40 years) Over 55 years old, and just returned from a trip to Argentina in him
Newest in the fleet
1967 Piper Super Cub on Wipline amphibious floats (a true "all terrain vehicle")
2010 Triumph Thunderbird


You can snap roll an Alfa only one time...

I'd feel a lot better about this whole thing if the Duetto was tucked safely away in my garage in Tulsa

For a long time, it wasn't too far from you. It collected quite a bit of dust sitting in a storage unit in Arkansas City, KS.

I did have a few conversations with Larry at APE about the possibility of putting an Alfa V6 in it.
But perhaps its fortunate that he was a long ways away from producing more of the custom bellhousings.

I'm now going down the path of putting it back together completely stock.

The ZL-1 is going in a 69 Camaro. Where it should be.

I know...fun though... having had the pleasure of high power race engines.... and Chassis that would be twisted to bits.... I would bet with a muncie gearbox and a detroit locker rear and of course traction Ladders up to the front wheel wheels, you could get a mean start ....for about 300 Meters ......

The older I get.. the faster I was....
