I came across this story! Talk about Barn find.

Anyway, you Real Alfaholics probably already know this story.

This was 40 years ago, when you could find really nice "club concours" quality Giuliettas for under $1000, and sometimes even for $500. You could find Bugattis and Ferraris for around $3000. Pre-war Alfas were as little as $1000.

It is a neat story about how the car was used. Ken Schaff owned BAT 7, I believe, for a number of years and drove it as his daily driver. I also know a couple of different guys that both drove their 250LM Ferraris as their daily drivers. My SZ has graced the parking lots of Mollie Stones, Safeway, Blockbuster, and Home Depot, however I am sure it does not attract even the smallest fraction of attention a BAT would (for me a very good thing).

There's an interesting book called the bugatti hunter - that seems to capture the way now significant cars were forgotten by a lot of people. A lot of interesting barn finds and so on. I think at one point the author was running several T57s.
