Arrivederci

Is this really the end?  It could be.  With some regret, my ’74 Alfa is for sale.  It’s not that I don’t love the car or that it has let me down.  No, rather it’s the arrival of a new vehicle that has forced me to make room in the garage.  I’ve owned the Alfa for four years now and have had many wonderful miles in it, but in this area there are 10 events for American cars for every one featuring foreign cars.

It was clearly time to diversify the garage and add some American flavor,  Here’s the result

1963 Ford Ranchero Deluxe, 260 cu.in. V8, 3-speed on the column

At least it’s the same color!

It’s still for sale, stay tuned…

    I hope when you are ultimately successful in your sale that you will part with some of the proceeds and buy your wife a new refrigerator with an icemaker that works >

    Dave, You are on an auto rampage! Your new purchase would be well received by the Claymont cool and neat guy’s club. Although, I am uncertain if the column shifter could match that of the ’59 Stude. As you may recall, the use of the clutch was not required except when starting from a stationary position.
