Photo History of a Mildly Addicted Alfista, 1966 to present
Remember this? The photo is from Laguna Seca, 1985, when we very nearly circled the entire track two rows wide. My GTV is second from right.This picture was used in Overheard Cams, the monthly publication of the Alfa Romeo Association of Callifornia. It was during one of our snail's pace laps that I put son Ted in my lap and let him steer.
Six years later Alfa was again the featured marque at Laguna Seca and Juan Fangio the featured driver. Here, in a gorgeous 1953 6C 3000CM are, from left, Juan Fangio II, Juan Fangio, and Alfa factory engine whiz Guido Moroni. Notice the look I'm getting from Fangio. Apparently, he didn't like anyone in front of him, in a car or on foot.
Fangio wheels the Alfa Museum's Tipo 159 around Laguna Seca in 1991 at age 80, sans helmet
and traveling fast enough to get into the dirt and nearly spin it at one point. Did not have a recorder
that day, much to my regret. The sound of that engine was something special. Closest I can get is
this: Alfa 8C-35 recorded at Palo Alto several years ago.
