John - I believe my car is a '68 Jr body (I'd have to check...it was a basket case when I bought it!)JT:
You are on the money.
The calipers appear to be a big issue.
That said, I gather that some of the replicas built in Europe have used aluminum Brembos (not sure the source?) and report great braking ability in race conditions (I know, relative to what?)
It appears that the uprights and steering arms are also a challenge?
Have you run into this........what is your "base" car?
You & JJRichard, as old as you are, surely you remember that "slicks" are a fairly recent invention!
Has to be the same. He was no spring chicken in the days that was taken. He still had the GTA and was club racing a red 1750 DP Spider.I'm curious, did the Joe Locarrio you mention later race an Alfetta in Showroom Stock B (SSB)? I remember watching a Joe Locario race at MAR (STL) in an Alfetta. This Joe was still pretty competitive at the young age of 72!
Hi Richard, I have Joe Locario's GTA RHD, Is there a # you could PM me as I would like to talk to you about Joe.Has to be the same. He was no spring chicken in the days that was taken. He still had the GTA and was club racing a red 1750 DP Spider.
I last talked with him in 1996. Back in the day he was the Alfa Dealer in Houston, Tx. A really nice man and mentor.
