AROC Club Run 10 April

Nice assembly of Alfas (plus my Lotus 7 rep) at Dunsandel, about to explore some of the hidden treasures of Ashburton.

Alfetta GTV2000 belongs to Mary Cornelius and Stu Brown. It gets used regularly. Used to belong to Mary's father John (previously AROCNZ President) who also has a Bell&Colvill turbo Alfetta.

AROC Canterbury drive 14-15 May 2011

Fun run to Tekapo. Pic is taken at coffee stop Terrace Downs. My newly acquired Super center stage - 43 years old and still able to foot it with the newer brigade.

Great photo. Is your new Super the one with the glass sunroof?

Yeah, a real pity about the sunroof. Honestly - how can anyone bear to cut or drill a hole of any sort of Alfa? Apart from that it is a nice car and even though it has had a lot of attention naturally over 43 years, most things seem to be in keeping with the original. The '68 Supers (an interim model between the original version and the 69ers that went onto 14" rims) had some quite distinctive badging and steering wheel etc. It puts a smile on my face every time I see it.

I nearly bought that car about 5-6 yrs ago when it belonged to a scientist that got killed in that aircrash at the end of the airport-wiped out a fair chunk of the top people (Grasslands Research?) where he worked. I remember the car was in good order and he had a thick receipts file which he showed me and a 1.24th model of the car was included. It did have some minor rust but I couldn`t get my head around the sunroof and at that time I didnt have the skills to repair so declined but it was only a month or so later he was killed. I used to see it driving down Memorial Ave the odd occasion by the new owner and was told it went to someone in West Melton. Good to see a Giulia out there-not too many in our region. I`m about to get ours out of storage and finish off the last piece of body work now I`ve got our Fulvia mobile with working brakes.

A light blue Giulietta (750 / 101) sprint on the Pahiatua track (going towards Palmerston North) last Saturday - gave me a bit of a shock. Anybody know who's it is?

Great turnout of people and cars to see Leon Witte's fabulous car collection, followed by a fast run out to Little River for lunch.
