Hi there. After 22 years of being a subscriber to C&SC, introducing myself here feels a bit like coming home. I unearthed dad's Giulia 12 years ago and have improved / modded / trackdayed / commuted in it since. Even now, I am looking forward to go to work in it tomorrow morning again.
Cheers, Alex.

Thanks, austin for making this visible. Well, this is the old lady. Dad's from '79 to '82, unearthed by me in '99. What once was a blue Nuova 1600 was transformed to a faggio Super lookalike by the former owner and during the rolling resto since my acquisition developed further with hotted-up 2 litre, lowered and Spaxed suspension and dozens other mods. In the café racer tradition, I was aiming a the best compromise between good everyday car and trackday fun. And I'm quite happy with it.
