        They do race prep and restoration and all kinds of stuff. They once restored one of the aluminum Ford Falcon factory rally cars.
        +1 for Group2. Its an Alfa Paradise! I always see something unique and cool while I'm there.

            I see the car was rebuilt w/ rivet on gta type flares.....Im sure he saved a little$$$ doing that...good to see it back.....gorgeous lil beast.....



            (so the Wetson's car, driven by HoRst Kwech was sponsored by Wetsons of course.....they were the first fast food burger chain on the east coast. The family (Wetanson) had a son that had the race bug. He was a damn good driver w/ lotsa coin , and raced alot of Porsche based cars......911, spyders etc. Years later the dude opens Dallas BBQ....makes more millions, and to this day vintage races over a million dollars in historic rides....ferrari, lotus, Porsche astons,....etc etc...He is always at Lime Rock...



            anyhew...


            that alfa ran some badass races against peter brocks/BRE Datsun 510.....and once had a victory taken away due to a protest by BRE.... due to a larger than allowed fuel cell....motha fooka.

              Here's a very cool Alfa I saw yesterday in Saratoga Springs, NY. How rare are these?

                How rare? In a word, Very! At least in the US. From what I know there are only a handful of them in the US, however there are at least two of them here in the bay area. Even so, I've only seen the two once in the same place.

                        Here are a few that I shot back in 2010










                        A rare sight, 3 US spec '69 GTVs. There were actually 6 of them at the show, the most anyone at the show could remember ever seeing in one place. The other three cars were owned by the same guy and they bailed early. Yes, the one with Panasports is mine.



                        The other three '69s




                        A 101 series Sprint. Mine might look this nice some day





                        The brand new interior in one of the '69 GTVs

                          That Sprint is sweet.

                          The 1750 interior is just the best...

                            I agree. That is why the only GTV I want now is another '69 1750. The seats were designed by a German back specialist and cost so much to make they only appeared in the '69 cars. One of the funny things about my car was that the fuel tank sender didn't really have any damping so if the fuel were sloshing, the needle swung back and forth as well. The part that sucked is that the '69 tanks were unique, the fuel pick ups were all in different places. I doubt that I'll ever find another '69 GTV that was as well preserved as mine was. Really the only thing that sucked about it was the heater control valves would blow up on me about every 6 months or so. They always did it at the least opportune time showering my foot with very hot coolant.

                              I knew a great old guy with a 69 GTV back in the day in Seattle. I believe he was a machinist for Boeing. Every summer, he would take off work for a month to go to Indianapolis as a team machinist. I think he worked on the big roadsters in the 50s through the 60s and then into more modern cars. He was probably in his 70s when I met him and he was still going every year.

                              He had a stock (maybe..?) 69 1750, red, in perfect condition, and man could he drive that car. Smooth and fast. Miss that guy.

                                When it comes to epic builds, this takes that cake.
