Huntington Beach, CA, United States

more than 10 years old restoration.  Normale car with Veloce set up ( dual weber carburetors and veloce header).   5 speed conversion using GTV gearbox. Engine has blank serial number.   It has been known that these blanks are dealer replaced engines.    It is the correct 750 series engine 1300cc for this model year.    It still has the original alfa Radio that is still working.   It is an older restoration so I  would not call it a show car, although i show it regularly at cars and coffee in irvine.   It is safe to called it a more than excellent weekend driver.    I have owned the car for 1 year.     The previous owner owns a ferrari restoration shop and restored this car in his shop.    I have a folder full of service receipts from previous owner, and also many services receipts under my ownership.   ODO shows 59k miles but i am not sure if original.

Paint in exellent condition, no nick, scratch, chip anywhere on the exterior.  The luster is still like new paint.   Paint on door jams are just average, but in good condition, it is not in show condition like the exterior.   Paint on dash board looks like original red factory paint, but i am not sure.     Paint in engine bay is in excellent condition, but not in show condition,  along the jams of the engine bay where the hood is resting on, the paint is not as shiny, but in average fair condition.  The underside of the hood lid is original alfa red crinkled paint.

No rust any where.  The underside looks very clean,  The paint from the restoration still clean underside the body with no dirt or rust build up.    There is one sign of rust repair near the transmission tunnel, but minor.    I would say this car was an excellent car before it was restored.    

New convertible top, New Veloce Exhaust Header, and Exhaust system  from Centerline

Engine runs strong, no smoke.   Transmission has been converted to 5 speed with alfa GTV gear box.   All synchros are good, no grinding.    Engine does leak oil here and there.   

5 new vredestein classic tires.

Nardi wooden steering wheel in exellent condition.

Chromes are exellent.   There is one small dent to the rear bumper , and the seam next to it is misaligned  a little as shown in last picture.   If you are really picky you can pop it out and adjust the bumper so that the seam is perfectly aligned.  But it is fine right now and hardly noticeable.

This car is my love and joy for the last year.  I spent a lot of money and time to make it perfect.   I  recently got a rare 15k mile honda s800 that i put the engine together myself, and 2 motorcycles, so my hands and my garage are full, It is time to let someone else enjoys the car.   I just have a reasonable low reserve to cover most of what i put in.   You're welcome to come inspect the car in Huntington Beach, CA.

Fiat reconsidering Mazda-based Alfa Romeo roadster? [w/poll]

Mon, 03 Mar 2014 10:00:00 EST

Alfa giveth and Alfa taketh away. With apologies to Job (he has gone through a lot, after all), that's how things are looking at the Italian automaker - whether it's the promise of new products or its impending return to the North American market. But it's especially true when it comes to new roadsters.
While Alfa Romeo is expected to unveil the 4C Spider at the Geneva Motor Show this week, reports are now suggesting that its other roadster project is being called into question. That project is a joint venture between Fiat and Mazda, which was set to produce a version of its next MX-5 Miata as an Alfa Romeo, and was even changing the design to accommodate Alfa's requirements.
Now it appears, however, that the whole project in doubt. The problem seems to stem from Sergio Marchionne's pronouncements that, as long as he's in charge, there won't be an Alfa Romeo built outside of Italy.

Get lost in Evo's sublime 2013 Car of the Year testing

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 20:00:00 EST

Every year Evo stages its Car of the Year test, bringing the best performance cars in the world to one location for an epic shootout. This year the magazine pitted eight CotY finalists against each other on Route Napoleon in Southern France - Evo claims it's the "best road in the world" - and then proceeded to nitpick the smallest of faults on each car until the winner could be named. You see, this year's lineup of machines was just so good that only one car obviously wasn't CotY material from the get-go. Can you guess which one judging from the list below?
- Aston Martin V12 Vantage S
- Audi R8 V10 Plus

Leno samples Corvette Z06, steam cars, supercars and the wonders of Pebble Beach

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 15:01:00 EST

While Jay Leno's Garage was conceived to highlight the wonders of The Big Chin's eponymous storage facility, Leno does occasionally get out an into the larger world. Pebble Beach and the festivities around Monterey recently provided a great excuse for a road trip, and Leno seemingly had a pretty full dance card.
In an episode aptly dubbed The Ultimate Car Week, our host takes us through a pretty representative selection of great things to see in and around Pebble. Starting with a ride-along in a steam car, Jay manages to check in on the latest McLaren supercar and drive the Alfa Romeo 4C along the way. Oh, and he takes a good look at the all-new Corvette Z06 (next to the original Z06) before hitting the Concourse d'Elegance, too.
