WOW LOOK AT THIS! VERY RARE 1971 ALFA ROMEO 1750 SPIDER CONVERTIBLE CALIFORNIA CAR! THIS CAR IS VERY DESIRABLE WITH THE HIGHLY SOUGHT-AFTER "CAM TAIL" AND FEATURES MECHANICAL FUEL INJECTION! THIS CAR SHOWS JUST OVER 82k ON A WORKING ODOMETER.

The car was a barn-find, found a few years ago. Since that time, the owner spent lots of time and money on the car to make mechanically-sound and good looking. Here is some of the work that has been done:

  • NEW PAINT
  • NEW TOP
  • NEW BRAKES
  • NEW CALIPERS
  • NEW ROTORS
  • NEW PLUGS/WIRES
  • NEW DISTRIBUTOR CAP
  • NEW CONDENSER
  • NEW POINTS
  • NEW FUEL & AIR FILTER
  • RECONDITIONED RADIATOR
  • NEWER TIRES
  • NEWER BATTERY

The car looks great with the candy apple red exterior paint that has one heck of a shine! Mechanically, the car is very sound...it shifts great and rides excellent.

To make the car perfect, there are some small items that will need addressed. The center gauge cluster does not work (above the radio), the seats have rips, the passenger door handle is missing. There are also a few dents here and there on the car, but nothing major. All-in-all, this is a very fine example of a rare Alfa Romeo from the period.

The car came from California and looks very good underneath. This is not a rust bucket - it has much potential for a restoration or drive it as-is and have yourself a FUN LITTLE DRIVER!

CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO TEST DRIVE!

THIS IS CALLED THE "KAMM TAIL" ON THIS CAR. ALSO, THIS ENGINE IS THE 1779cc 1.8L DOHC. Ebay did not have an option for this in the listing information and incorrectly listed the engine as the 1962cc version, which would make this a 2000.

We also have a ton of additional parts that go with the car, as well as the original California license plates, owners books, and some additional original paperwork. The parts are extensive, filling a whole table and some are NIB. Ebay will not allow any more photos to be posted, so if you would like me to email you the photos of the parts, please send me a question through the listing. Thanks!

Porsche 911 Turbo and Nissan GT-R Nismo star in World's Greatest Drag Race 4

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 17:01:00 EST

We love Motor Trend's annual World's Greatest Drag Race video. Now back for its fourth appearance, the idea of lining some of the world's fastest cars up for a ten-wide, straight-line, full-throttle run is, well... it's pretty freaking badass.
The lineup this year boasts some impressively fast cars to be sure. The group of ten includes the following darlings: Alfa Romeo 4C, BMW i8, BMW M4, Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Ford Fiesta ST, Jaguar F-Type R Coupe, Nissan GT-R Nismo, Porsche 911 Turbo S, Subaru WRX STI and, last but not least, the Volkswagen GTI. Give us any one of those for the weekend, and we're happy to take the keys.
It must be said though, that for a publication that draws as much water as Motor Trend does, there are some big cars that we might expect to be here instead. The Lamborghini Huracán or Ferrari 458 Speciale would have added some exotic flare to the list, and the omissions of the Chevy Corvette Stingray (for the second year in a row) and the Dodge Challenger Hellcat are real head-scratchers.

Next-gen Mazda MX-5 Miata mule spied 'Ring testing

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 11:27:00 EST

Fans of simple, lightweight motoring, rejoice - we now have images of the next-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata undergoing testing at der Nürburgring Nordschleife. Now, to be fair, this isn't some lightly camouflaged example that will give us a great peak of what the next Miata, which will also become the next Alfa Romeo Spider, will look like. This is a mule, with the new bits hidden under a current Miata's body. That doesn't mean there aren't a few scraps of valuable information here, though.
According to our flock of camera-toting spies at the Nürburgring, the next Miata is likely to grow a bit, as new models are wont to do. In particular, it will be longer and wider, and the wheelbase is likely going to be stretched, based on the shape of the wheel wells and doors. Both of those factors will add more space in the cabin.
Those are the big indications provided by these photos, but while the MX-5 might be growing, it's a safe bet based on these images that it, and the (likely pricier) Alfa, will retain the classic, long-hood, short-deck styling that so typifies rear-drive roadsters.

Mazda engineers urging execs for more RWD models

Wed, 02 Oct 2013 13:01:00 EST

According to Edmunds, Mazda engineers are pressuring the company to create more rear-wheel-drive models, in an effort to better differentiate itself from its rivals. This push is reportedly coming from middle and senior engineers within the company, and these folks at Mazda believe this rear-drive strategy would allow the automaker to produce more distinctive, fun to drive cars. Mazda discontinued the rear-drive (and rotary-engined) RX-8 a few years ago, leaving the MX-5 Miata as the company's only RWD offering.
As enthusiasts, we're fully on board with Mazda offering more rear-drive cars, but unsurprisingly, the company's top management isn't exactly keen on the idea - and with good reason. First and foremost, the cost associated with redesigning fresh architecture for new models would be very high, and considering the fact that Mazda hasn't exactly been raking in the dough lately, an expensive new venture like this doesn't make a whole lot of sense. What's more, Mazda's latest front-drive models - the Mazda3, Mazda6 and CX-5 - have been very well-received, and are helping the company gain sales momentum.
But that doesn't mean there aren't other options. Edmunds reminds us that Mazda is already partnering with Alfa Romeo on the next-generation Miata, and if this collaboration is successful, perhaps the relationship could bear additional fruit. After all, Alfa Romeo is said to be working on returning to its rear-wheel-drive roots, so Mazda's engineers might be able to make a case for more RWD goodness after all.
