Cool Alfas! Thanks for the pictures!
What a nice clean easy to work in setup.
Course I would miss lying in the dirt to work on cars. I seem to always end up on the ground under a vehicle. Even took my truck to my son Dave's shop. Two lifts, six bays and they tell me to work outside on the ground. Come back home and don't even have a garage. Matter of fact the Chevy dealer just got his first lift last week.
oh well as long as I have my Alfa who cares.

No I wasnt,
My car isnt ready and getting my FIA International took me past the entry date. I was with a friend who races a Cooper and I was a spectator. Monza is a very difficult track to enjoy unless you just want to stay in one location. Lots and lots of walking.
next year...

awesome pictures. i sure wish that many gta's would show up to events out here. all the one's in los angeles haven't run in over a year! what's the deal? i know if i had one, it'd be on the track every opportunity. glad to see the european's are using the cars for what they were built to do.

It is my opinion that we Americans think of the $ to fix first and racing second. The Italians at this race push these as hard as they were pushed in the '60's. To see a Ferrari GTO sideways in the grass at 200 Km is scary and also a treat. The Maseratti pictured below was driven so hard it was bizzare but great.

The Tyrrell six wheelers are so *****in. I loved these when I first saw them. I think it was at the 76 Long Beach Gp. Anyone else remember this car at this race? I was very young could be wrong.

Simon!! I got the same Matchbox when I was a kid too!! :D

I am not sure if mine was a TOMICA or a Matchbox though.

I heard that they worth a fortune nowadays.

the ELF car has always been a favorite of mine. My cousins and I used to fight for the ELF matchbox car all the time as kids.

Tyrell 6 wheeler

Goodyear made special size front tires for this car only. I'm amazed there are still any around. Maybe that's why there are no front wheels mounted in the picture?

I can't imagine Goodyear doing that anymore.
