As with Green Meanie and Road Trip, I have one of those 74 vintage, in what I previously thought was a 'rare' color....A "bit" tuned - Mild cams, head, etc., HP Spica pump by Wes Ingram, and HC pistons.

How on earth did I miss this thread?

I keep telling myself I need to take some more glamour shots of her. This is Anatrina, my '74 in Giallo Pagoda. The wheels are Alfa specific 15x7 OZ Racing with Yokohamas. She's a tempermental little beast with a ported and polished head, big cams, Weber DCOE 40s, and compression somewhere north of 11:1 (10.4 pistons + head shaved). She likes 93 octane, and lots of it!

BTW, Anatrina is a very late California '74, and she originally had a black rectangular Vitaloni mirror. I like the round chrome one much better.

While browsing through the BB on a 6 degree Winter morning, it is nice to think of playing with my Red '76 Spider last summer... The photographer seemed to like "artsy" angled shots. And, before somebody gives me a hard time, the hanging emergency brake cable has been secured.

Garry-Graig - looks VERY promising - more photos of your restoration please! What is lurking under the cover - perhaps you can make it a 'what is the mystery car?' challenge

I do see Herbie on the other side!

Hello

Soccersimon asked me for a couple of pics of my spider. So here goes! It's a 72 rhd in Le Mans blue. There was a thread on it a couple of months back, so apologies if you've already seen it!

Here's my 1978 Spider

Here are some recent pictures of my Chocolate Brown 1978 Spider.

By the way--a question. Someone recently suggested to me that the two round vent holes under the front bumper on mine are unusual. As far as I know, this car is entirely as delivered to my Dad and stepmother in 1978. Anyone have these on theirs? Kind of hard to see in the pictures, but you can see one if you look carefully--a round cutout about five inches in diameter in the metal under the front bumper, presumably for air flow.

Thanks

Colin

Colin:

Those holes didn't come from Alfa. But looking at your car, I can see some very original, rare OEM pieces as well as rare aftermarket pieces. I noticed the belt clips still in place as well as a Behr aftermarket air conditioning unit. I wonder if your holes in the lower nose valence might be related to that AC install? In any case, looks like a very well kept original 78.

Best Regards,
John M
