I have one too Andrew, they are cool. I've had it for a long time so not sure where or what it came from.

Another weekend, another drive. Today took the GTV with my wife in my Super, friend in Tiger, friend in 240Z, another meander around W Marin. Did Highway 1 North, past Muir Woods, Stinson, Dogtown, Olema. Lots of impromptu creeks running across 1 north of Stinson along Bolinas Lagoon; the road was basically at sea level. Tiptoed through, didn't ingest any water. GTV did great, corners well. Heard a clunk on braking, at home found the L side caster ball joint loose; they make a slap noise if even slightly sloppy. Changed that, and while I was in there found the front calipers really weren't very free, so swapped them out with ones on the shelf and new pads. Should be good for 51 more years.

A red Stepnose normally gets all the attention in a group, but try bringing a Tiger; people melt for them even when you can't hear the exhaust. Hobey has had this Mk 1 for 25+ years, has a 289 and T5 trans, goes like stink but I'd trust a GTV in the twisties over a Tiger any day. My Tiger-building project proceeds, here it and the GTV talk shop in the shop.

Car looks great. Let me know when you get into the dashboard restoration. I have some experience with these devils!

Delta-Sierra AROC chapter held a Sacramento Delta "ferries and bridges" tour today, I took the GTV. Started in Rio Vista, wound around the Delta, rode on two Caltrans ferries that are part of the state highway system (the Real McCoy II and the J Mack), stopped in historic Chinese town of Locke, and had nice beer n BBQ lunch in Isleton. Led by Michael and Tamara Williams, 14 cars in all, four GTVs in red, white, green, and blue, three Duettos, two other Spiders, a 4C, a Giulia Veloce, and two Porsches. Great bunch, good trip. An unusual aspect was getting stopped for quite awhile by a sheep herd/stampede on a public road in the Montezuma Hills south of Fairfield. The sheep had been on the road for many miles, and guess what we got all over our cars as we drove through it? Fun trip, thanks Michael and Tamara. GTV doing well, 500 miles since the head gasket, time to retorque.
The blue GTV is a Jr with a GTA Jr head and distributor, 45 Webers, etc. Pretty cool car.

Thanks Andrew. Glad you joined us. That sheep **** doesn't come off easily! Our border collies were very curious about the stuff all over the rockers!

Big improvements today. Got these parts from Classic Alfa some time ago, installed today. Bertone script and proper C pillars quadrifoglios. Much better.
I got a carpet set from OKP but might be a bit before I install it.

Very nice! What did you use to mount the Quadrifoglio badges? Speed nuts?

Seemed like a patriotic thing on the Fourth of July to go out and burn up some gas on a drive. Me in my 67 GTV, John in his 74 GTV, John and Julia in their 70 Berlina, and Aaron and Meredith in their 67 Super wandered around Marin County. Also met a a friend in a Touring Tipo 3 1900 at a fire department pancake breakfast in Woodacre, but didn't get pics and the 1900 had to head home.
Here's a few pics from the drive. The on-the-dam pic is Alpine Reservoir west of Fairfax, dam is 100 years old this year. It's on Bolinas-Fairfax Rd, full of bicycles. A guy who's on the Berlina Register newsletter list (which I publish) rode up and said "how's it going?" Small world this Bay Area.

Love that metallic green, especially on the refrigerator box that is the Berlina. I’ll let you know when I am back up and running and I’ll join on the next one.

I started on my carpet change today. Removed the front carpets, have to get the seats out to do the tunnel and rear. There is added padding throughout, I'm going to remove it all. Changed the shifter, which buzzed like a mofo, for the one I took out of my new Super (which I traded for the proper more-vertical sedan model). Here's evidence the car was white when new. I so wish it was now. Alas; I'm not going to repaint it.
