where and when did you take the pic of the alfa?
i'm not quite sure but i think there is only one of those alfa t33 "periscope"left...and that would be the one of the recently sold rosso bianco collection.
nice shot...

would be lovely to see the alfa on a slot track

ps: what kit did you use?
Very nice Phil, very nice!
Hey, I hear the guys from Turin are meeting at Ezio's tonight to test their cars! I think they are on a war path

Me, I have nothing to wear so I won't come to the Vintage meeting.

That's ok, if they are anything like Itlalians usually are in a war they will be going backwards

yes it has been broken up...i don't know the whole story in detail but the collection was originally to be transferred to brussels to join an existing collection.this obviously never happened...lots of cars appeared in auctions over the past few months which means the rosso bianco collection with all it's absolutely unique cars will never be seen again....
there were heaps of one offs and rarities which will most likely be stored away in some climatised garages of private collectors (or should i call them speculators) for the next 200 years.

in the late 80's the german motor klassik magazine had a 3 part series with pictures of all cars in the museum...absolutely amazing what had been carried together over the years...
i was living in germany for 31 years,80 km away from aschaffenburg and have NEVER been there...

would love to see some of your pics....

Some years back I was visiting a friend in Alte Busek (a bit north of Frankfort as I recall) My friend is a Jaguar collector and, at that time he had two restored examples; A Mk IV and and XK 120. We decided to visit Rosso et Bianco and, although it was mid-winter, felt that the only way to do it properly was in the 120 with the top down!

We bundled up and made the journey - fantastic trip and visit. Somewhere I have the brochure that I bought while there as well as a collection of slides.

As amusing side light of the journey: On our way back on the autobahn we were traveling at somewhere just over 120KPH not so much reflecting wind chill but out of respect for then 30+ year old wire wheels. We were being passed by everything including elderly VWs and delivery vans!

Here you are Marty,they are photo,s of photo,s as
i took them with a SLR on my visit and never transfered them
to my computer.


If you want the other pics, send me your e-mail address and ill mail them to you
Im glad you asked for these as i thought i had lost the pics of Hub Habets rally track
but they where in with these shots, a reminder of my trip to he and his good lady wife.

Sorry for the ramble and hyjacking of this post, so back to Turin, any more photo,s of the
