    Modern 8C clay buck in the center. The red show car on the right was pretty cool - I remember that in Road & Track.

    6C 2500 "Golden Arrow?"
    Besides being a cool-looking car, this is interesting because there are design elements in here from before the war, just like American cars had. Alfa tried to keep building big luxurious fast cars, but toned down and smaller....but that market had essentially vanished with the destruction of the economy. At the same time, Ferrari had quit, gotten out of his non-compete clause, and started building a very small number of fast V12 cars, mostly for racing. He only built road cars to fund the race cars, so it was a different kind of company and much smaller. Then by the early- / mid-50s, Alfa is building fast little 1100, 1300, and 1600 production sporting cars that people can afford, and many of them were developed into racing versions.

            Anyone looking for a Spyder? Buddies got one for 6k, pretty nice.

            74 Spider, best year of the square tail, last year with chrome bumpers. Has about 110k miles. Runs great, starts every time. Needs suspension bushing rebuild and has a little rust in the usual spots, floors, spare tire

            If interested I can wander over and grab some pics. Hes a hardcore Alfa guy; rocks a Berlina, and just picked up a GTV6 from Seattle..

              mm, Spiders....people used to love driving roadsters and convertibles, why is that changing? Horsepower is too high, too much wind? People are less tough, can't take the noise? People don't like cruising down a twisty country road with the top off? hmm..

                This is a later 2-liter. I like these black and tan dashes.

                        Anyone know what size socket I need to remove my 1750s crank pulley? It measures at 37.6mm, so I'm guessing a 38, or is it SAE for some screwy reason?

                        Thanks,
                        Will

                          37.6 just happens to be close to 1 1/2", but that doesn't make sense - there shouldn't be anything English-threaded on an Alfa.
