A long and sad night a week ago I will never forget. By now many of you have read the story. We were first on the scene. I am NOT a hero, I think most people would have tried to help somehow. Understanding cars and their limitations may have played a factor sure. What ultimately turned out to be a 2 hour ordeal for us as we filled out Police reports, gave us a unique view of the whole process. It made us appreciate the true heroes. The first responders, Firemen/women, EMS and Police who deal with this stuff everyday day. It also made Doris and I realize how life can change in moments. Had I been standing in between the two crashed cars as I was just moments prior to the third car arriving. I likely would be part of history. Lets all drive heads up all the time. My deepest condolences to the family of the woman who sadly passed away at the hospital.
Project #Romeo update... @bradco_restorations found me a busted but save-able 1969 center console set up to go with the lightweight @alfaholicsltd dash. One great thing about #detroit is that thanks to the auto industry...we have some of the best trim shops in the world! Love the #alcantara Suede work & craftsmanship of #TrybusInc Now I get to have fun making patterns for the inserts... #alfaromeo #alfaromeogtv #GTVR
A little before & After Update on project #Romeo #alfaromeo a good friend of @bradco_restorations, Jedi Alfisti KevinCorrigan is doing an amazing job rebuilding this old gearbox. Using the #GTA gear set from @alfaholicsltd it should shift like butter. May have to park it over a mirror at the Car and coffees!
ahhh... the ultra rare 1955 #Chrysler #Ghia ST special concept...only a handful were ever made but its influence transcended 5 decades. (pic author unknown) Designed in Italy but there was a long standing partnership with Chrysler design and Virgile Exner going on. This one is one of my all time favs...Like the Ghia designs that came a few years prior that inspired the 1955 300C this car inspired the Chronos Concept , the LHS concept and production and the 2005 300C. Interesting how this Anglo Italian love affair has come full circle!
