Video of the Week: Fangio in a Pirelli Commercial

This film--i am thinking probably shown in movie theaters before the main attraction--is from c. 1966, showing el maestro lapping Monza in his 1951 Alfetta 159. Some wonderful sounds and footage.  Gotta love his shiny leather driving shoes when he steps out of the monoposto at the end!


Yes, this is Real

My good Alfista friend Rob sent me this ad from Seattle Craigslist:

Turbodelta Fun in the Woods

This Alfetta Turbodelta rally car is just dope. Nicely done little video, too!

Hat tip to Simon Simmonds!


Ferrari 308 GTB Battles Alfettas at Bathurst

This is a very well done amateur video, featuring multiple camera angles. The car sounds fantastic, and Mount Panorama is probably one of my favorite tracks in the world, but I really love the battles this guy is having with a gaggle of 4-cylinder Alfetta GTs!  He obviously has the horsepower advantage on the long back straight, with the V8 in his car. But the Alfetta's superior chassis (and possibly aerodynamics as well) allows them to hang on for lap after lap! Fantastic stuff!


When one just isn't enough...

Many Alfisti can't help themselves.  You need a GTV6, then an Alfetta GT, and an Alfetta track car as well.  Naturally.  Best part is, you could have all 3 of these cars for well under 20 grand.  Talk about a bargain!
