Alfa Romeo 6C listing - Series 1, Series 2, Series 3
Here is a listing about the early series cars for which I have collected some scrap of information. Sometimes it is considerably more than a scrap and sometimes not much at all. In this listing, you are getting to see only a bit more than a scrap about each car. Some might agree that it is the most important part ... if the listing can become more complete, definitive and certain as to the nature of the data presented. Each car has potentially important lessons for those of us who want to know more about the cars in general and about certain cars specifically. WARNING! There are very likely to be some entries that are a bit misleading. I am correcting errors all the time. This presentation is not intended to be any kind of "gospel" whatsoever. It is merely a collection of observations ... and not all of the observations are mine and some of mine might even be flawed!
Also attached, a revised form that I use for collecting data from each car individually. I always learn more by seeing a car in person, but sometimes just a bit of specific data can also be informative, particularly if it is accompanied by photos. Please share something ... anything(!), about a car that you own ... or know ... or have known.
If something meaningful is shared as a result of posting here, I will take the time to prepare similar listings for the later cars as well. If not ... you'll simply have to wait for my next book ... which is always in the works. I just can't tell you when it will appear. Yet.
Updates as of 2/26//2011:
I have just heard from the current owner of 0312953 who assures me that the engine size is 1750cc and that the engine in the car is the original engine so the master listing has been updated to reflect this knowledge.
I have removed the "info form" from an earlier posting and am leaving it here where you can still see it below as an attachment. The attachment had 288 viewings when removed from that earlier posting while this one had 198 viewings at the same time. Presumably, there was some overlap in the views so I rather doubt there had been 486 separate viewers at the time. The overview document (dated 2008-08-26) has had 684 viewings at this time.
Update 5 March 2011:
The Alfa Romeo 6C listing has been revised and is now posted in #99. It had seen 693 viewings as of midnight PST beginning 6 March, 2011
The data-collection form has also been moved to posting #99. It had seen 201 viewings at this same time.
