Giulietta Spider (101-03)
White, red interior
Bought the car in San Francisco on November 6, 1976. Originally white, the car had been painted red -- with a mop, apparently. It also burned oil at an amazing rate, but it was complete and mostly original and ran well. I rebuilt the engine, and my wife and I enjoyed it. I had the 4-speed tranny modified to 5-speeds, using 1974 GTV internals, by a guy in Berkeley, and over the years I replaced the engine with a 105 series that a guy had been building to race, and from my uncle in Boise I got the differential, entire brake system, front and rear suspension, headers and speedo and tri-gauges from a 1965 Spider Veloce that my cousin had totaled. I got it painted white again about 20 years ago, and it's had a new top and the seats rebuilt a few years ago. It's a sewer old car, and it was perfect for rural Sonoma Valley where we lived until 2014. Here in Boise it's my go-to-Home-Depot car mostly. There aren't any of the beautiful little (horrible paved) lanes that ran around Sonoma County, but on the other hand evenings are warm here in the summer, downtown Boise is rocking' at night (yes, really!), and Patricia and I join the parade regularly.
