Steve Cathey, proud owner of a GREEN Alfa-No 76 of 100 (S2) to commemorate the 1929 Alfa1500cc Irish Grand Prix clean sweep victories. Was not allowed to call it BRG (British Racing Green) as the UK had an international conniption. So they forbade the use of the colour for the Italians. The Italians went on to create "verde matisse" mix 262 and used that instead! They did not call it moss green or even Irish emerald green......the UK still haven't figured it out!

now all you need to do is post a photo.

(never heard of this limited edition S2, was it just a SA thing to push sales, rather like the Niki Lauda spider was in the USA?)
