Alpina-copia

I know there are some BMW 2002 peeps out there that would pass out on the spot if they saw all of these highly-coveted Alpina performance parts together in one place like this. Heck, I know one who would be giddy to just find a complete set of the wheels with the elongated holes.

Who could blame them? Just look at all of the rare goodies collected here in this shot: performance cranks and pistons and engine blocks and brakes and sway bars and springs and headers and exhaust and…

Whew, I’m starting to get lightheaded myself.

1971 4 Hours of Monza

Great footage here from the pits and on track of the 4 Hours of Monza, 1971. What a wonderful grid for 1971’s first event on the European Touring Car Championship, with a pack of Alfa GTAMs, BMW 2002s and 2800s, Fiat 500s, Escorts, and a Camaro for good measure. All the more exciting, this video has real audio with some great engine screaming!

How much would I like one of the Dunlop Racing Division jackets seen in this 1st video at 55 seconds? Very much. Very, very much.
