Not an Alfa Romeo, but a Zagato prototype for sale .....

I know, this is not an Alfa Romeo.
But when last time you have seen a Zagato prototype for sale on eBay UK?

Search for: "Zagato prototype, one of three, Ercole Spada design"

It looks a very interesting and advanced design for its time, Ercole Spada was a serious visionary!

Agreed. A good Alfisti friend had one in the day, really loved it and to this day will happily talk about the adventures he had in it. Some good, some not so!

Bro had a Sunbeam Imp "in the day" and it was a fun little car to drive. Only problem he had with it was that the rear brakes would swell in the wet and bind, and he would have to readjust them to get the car going again. When the car dried out he would have to readjust them closer again. Other than that...
