“Seen On the Street” Danbury, CT: ’78 Fiat 124 Spider

Fiat 124











Fiat always sold attractive Spiders (Spiders with an “I”) in the U.S. The design studio Pininfarina usually got the nod to pen the body. They were generally a lower price and lower performance alternative to Alfa Romeo Spiders. The last series sold in the U.S. was to be the longest lived of these. First known as the 124 Spider, when introduced in 1966, the car sported a 1500 cc DOHC four-cylinder engine that over the years went up and down in displacement several times, with most of the cars sold in the U.S. being 1756 cc and 1995 cc, both variants equipped with a single Weber carburetor.

Giugiaro’s Alfa: ’86 Alfa Romeo GTV6

86 Alfa Romeo GTV6

Motor magazines have quoted the Busso V-6 engine as one of the best sounding engines ever. The British Classic & Sportscar noted it as “The best sounding engine, this side of a Maserati V-8”. If you’ve ever heard one at full chat, it is a very cool sound. We really like these Alfas after years of not really liking the way they look. But the Giugiaro design is now appreciated and has become pretty neat to look at. If you look carefully, you’ll notice some details that were first deployed in the Montreal like the scallops over the headlights and the tail light cluster. Read More


Mercedes Benz 230S Rally Tribute Progress

The Colonel at Fielkds 2 sm

It is never done. You learn that early on in the hobby.  You can never really say you are done when you are re-commissioning an old car – in our case 48 years old. There will always be something you either have to do or must do. Last week we replaced a clutch master cylinder and the week before, the gear shift lever linkage and tomorrow, a heater core shut-off valve. But for all intents and purposes, The Colonel is back to health and is a blast to drive. The only item not yet working is the windsheild washer system. The wipers wipe but we need to clean out the fluid lines and do some fiddling. However, we even managed to get the small stuff up and running – the clock, the Becker Grand Prix, the interior lights, the glove box light, the cigar lighter and even the trunk light all function like 1967. All of the new equipment we added with the help of John Rogers works great. We await our graphics package from Ghi Signs and we will be ready for the Greenwich Concours on June 2nd. That’s next Sunday and the weather prediction is sunny and around 90 degrees. Oh my. If you plan on attending, stop by and say hello.


Honor Memorial Day: 1956 M38A1 CDN3 MILITARY JEEP WITH MATCHING 1952 M100 TRAILER


We thought we would honor Memorial Day by offering a veteran of the Armed Forces. This Jeep has been treated to a 2-year restoration. It is a  Korean War period military Jeep and trailer, and it is now time to find a new home. Purchased from a local Washington State collector, this Jeep found its way from Nova Scotia, where it lived its military life on Canadian Nato base.
