Purchased in Holland during the summer of 2006, this 1973 Giulia super was quite tired and heading for a scrapyard or perhaps a race track. After a close inspection and test drive I felt it was a good candidate for restoration. The price was right so it was bought and driven for a few weeks around E
urope before shipping it home to New York. After about a year of use, a sudden fog of white smoke out the exhaust, indicated the head gasket needed replacing. Rather then rebuild the smaller 1300 engine, I found a ceased 1600 engine in Holland and rebuilt it for eventual use in the super. From November 2010 to June 2011 the super was stripped, welded up and reassembled with plans to attend Concorso Italiano held in Monterey California on Adjust 18th 2011. Several issues came up to delay the completion, including re-building the engine a second time, a fatly throwout bearing, defective clutch slave cylinder, delays at the body-shop, etc.
With the Super now completed, the route on the map highlighted and points of interest indicated we are set to depart on a 8,000 mile round trip. The route from east to west will follow as much of the Lincoln Highway as possible. Along the route we plan to visit many microbreweries and some unusual road-side attractions. On the journey west to east I will be joined by two Dutch Alfsiti who are flying into San Francisco. We will be travailing via a northern route with part of the journey thorough Canada.
