New Giulia Sedan Lacks Toolbox

by pete on July 21, 2015

Fifty years and a toolbox separate the new from the old Giulia sedans

bro-1-570

By Pete Vack

The master of the universe who will purchase a 2015 510 hp Alfa Giulia Sedan will be missing one important element that past and current owners of classic Giulias often cherish; the intimate relationship an owner develops with his automobile by doing the tuning, maintaining, and repairing oneself.

Nor will they ever have to carry a box full of tools and spare parts. [click to continue…]

Chateau Impney Hillclimb Revived!

Fiat-2-570

“You are going where? To what? When?”, I asked our foremost British correspondent when he said he’ll drop by Impney on the weekend of July 11-12. This one was a new one on us. In fact, it is the very first revival of the Chateau Impney hillclimb that was staged on the grounds of the Chateau Impney, originally run from 1957-1967. And what a revival it was. The turnout, the weather, and above all Sharp’s imagery were all spectacular; what else can we do but run as many photos as possible? And so we did. In this segment we list the Italian and French cars in alphabetical order. In another segment, we allow room –click here – for the magnificent non-Italian and French entries; cars you will not see elsewhere and yet so very fascinating= Ed. [click to continue…]
