McLaren M19C

Dubbed ‘The Alligator Car’ thanks to its bulging mid section and long nose, the McLaren M19C introduced a number of firsts to the team. New sponsor for 1972, the Yardley cosmetics company, brought in a change of colours, and a new driver; Peter Revson.

2012 All Italian Car and Motorcycle Show

I drove my Alfetta Sprint Veloce to the 2012 All Italian Car and Motorcycle Show. The informal show is sponsored by the Alfa Romeo Association for the benefit of the Alameda Special Olympics.

This year, my Sprint Veloce was joined by Chris Keen‘s red Alfetta GT, (see flickr photoset below) so there were four representatives of the Alfetta family, including a sedan and a GTV6. There were plenty of Alfa Romeos, Ferraris, Fiats, a few De Tomasos, a few Lamborghinis. a few Lancias and a few Maseratis. On the motorcycle front, there were many Aprilias, Ducatis, Moto Guzzis and Vespas.
