Tom Sahines’ historic racer and a whole lot more
When my GT’s 2-litre motor turned a rod bearing in 2013, I pulled the engine and hauled it to California. There, my friend Steve Smith disassembled the entire motor to give it a thorough check. What he found was a perfect machine … except for the one bad bearing. Steve removed the crank and had it repaired and renitrided. Then he reassembled it using a new gasket kit and all new bearings (not just the bad one). He also rehoned the cylinders, just because he could. Because we live 700 miles apart and I’m moving at the speed of a glacier these days, it took about a year before the fully refreshed engine was back in the car.

Support the arts. Buy a print or commission a drawing from three of our favorite artists
As explained elsewhere on this site, SNO is strictly for
fun. Yes, you can donate three
or four bucks and get a sticker
or badge, but that’s so we can
all show our colors when
we’re out and about.
So why this page? When we
went looking for original art
to make the pages of our
website more attractive and
interesting, three fine artists
agreed to share their
wonderful work. To thank
them, I’m sharing their
contact information here,
along with the encouragement
that you consider buying their
prints or originals — or commissioning an original of your cherished Italian machine. Hang an Allen, Felstead, or Quinlisk on your wall? Yes you can!
Guy Allen is a regular contributor to some of our favorite sports car magazines. His original art and prints also hang on the walls of auto enthusiasts all over the world. Check out his website at: www.guyallen-art.com.
Anna- Louise Felstead is a talented English artist we first saw when she was featured in Classic & Sports Car magazine.. She not only draws Alfas and other fine cars with a whimsical style that’s all her own, she also competes in vintage races. Below is her take on a Hispano Suiza at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Contact Anna-Louise to ask her about commissioning art or purchasing her prints and originals: www.alfelstead.com Don’t be surprised if the Felstead name sounds familiar. Besides being a well-known artist in her own right, she appeared with her sister Alexandra in the cast of British reality TV series Made in Chelsea.
Several years ago Jerry Quinlisk published a book of his delightful drawings entitled: “The AlfaBet .” Many of his drawings feature fellow Alfisti and their cars, making them all the more fun for those of us who can spot their hidden humor.
