Glad you and your family are still standing. The underinsured point was well taken. My friends in Ventura said there isn’t anything left to burn near them when I called to check in. Sad. Had a few close calls in Altadena myself a few years back. Terrifying. Sorry for your loss.
Thanks for all your kind words and thoughts. Initially, I was very saddened by the lost of the Monti because of all the time, effort, fun, money and travails I had put into it to fix it up and enjoy it, but then I realized, it is after all just part of all the other "stuff" that was lost in the fire, and in the end, all that really matters is the health and well being of you and your family. So I had a great Thanksgiving with my family, and will likewise enjoy the upcoming holidays, and hope you all will too! Wilkie
As we say health and well being we can not buy. The goods you can get back. Happy that all family is safe and in good health.
Hope we had an "AWB - Alfisty Without Borders" project in order to bring back to life these historic cars using volunteer work.
If you'd like to get away from all the devastation for a while, I've got a few spare rooms on the other side of our island. What is the situation now? Is any rebuilding going on now or will it likely be a while?
Fellow listers: I posted this earlier in the general forum instead of here… Anyway, a few weeks ago I attended the Rancho Santa Fe Cars and Coffee show and saw a very, very nice 1973 Montreal. Looks like it is now up for sale on Bring a Trailer...
i have some more Montreal parts for sale.
let me know if you are interested.
also have engines, gearboxes and much more...
rear lights are in very very nice condition (I think)
more parts to follow
If you're in the market, I'm selling my Alfa Montreal at the Gooding & Co. auction in Scottsdale next month at no reserve so it's not coming home. It's a solid #2 car with no rust and excellent cosmetics.
There is a New Old Stock rear Montreal bumper listed on eBay (by Planet105). It is not cheap at 3,788 AU or $2,600 us but if you need one...there are some scratches from handling or storage that will need to be addressed as well...
