It’s a Lotus. It’s an Alfa! No, it’s Wil Caron’s highly original, thoroughly non-originale use of 1978 Alfetta bits and pieces.
Wil Caron’s unique car is made of steel tubing & sheet alloy. It has inboard front coilovers, some original rear suspension, carbs,and shortened one-piece propshaft.
This 1350-pound Alfa-engined Alfus (?), Lofa (?), Alfa Romus (?) is a delight to look at and sounds like a lot of fun to drive. Apparently folks like Wil Caron, who live on islands in British Columbia,find some really great ways to spend their time.
Speaking of great ways to spend time, here’s George Schweikle’s 1976 Spider. AlfaBB readers will recognize “Conedriver’s” very fast autocrosser.
Clive Innes, from England, sent us this photo of his lovely GTV.

Uwe Reuter, who lives near Stuttgart, Germany, says this GT was imported from Italy in the 1980’s. Cut and paste this link to check out his blog: http://sno-bertone.blogspot.com/
Uwe Reuter’s fine 1972 GT 1300 Junior now has a more potent 1600cc motor.
This is Robert Bobardt’s modified 1973 GTV 2000, which also lives in Germany. Changes are found in the car’s cylinder head, fuel pump, ignition, pistons, suspension, exhaust, seats, and front grill. In other words, it’s Scuderia Non Originale through and through.
The 1974 GTV of Ed Prytherch.
This is a true SNOmobile. Scott Potter’s Alfa shivers through a cold day in Fredericksburg, Texas.
SoCal Steve Smith, not to be confused with NorCal Steve Smith, runs his Giulia Sprint GT Jr. at the Las Vegas International Speedway. This Steve lives in southern California.
Did you hear about the crazy guy who put a Honda S2000 engine in a 1971 GTV? Yep, he’s a SNO member. He’s Keven MacGowan, and he’s crazy like a fox.
MacGowan’s GT now has 240 free-revving horsepower and provides one heck of a shock to any unwary street racer. There’s an entire thread on this build at AlfaBBcom.
Here’s Keven’s completed 1971 GTV, hiding its Honda motor from the unwary street racer.

Another shot of the finished engine swap. What can we say? The man does amazing work.

What a lovely line-up of Oregonian Alfas! On the far right is the Spider of Bob & Gale Gordon. Second from right is Joe Kollman’s Sprint, and hiding in the back is the Spider of Joe Cantrell.

The ’67 GTV of Bryan Biggers, of Saugus, California. It was inspired, he says, by the cars of two fellow SNO members.
