Alfa 2600 Sprint Roadtest
« on: June 29, 2011, 12:12:14 AM »
Hi,

Just to let you know that the July edition of Classic & Sportscar has a roadtest comparing the 2600 Sprint against the
Lancia Flaminia. I will try and upload it in the next couple of days, having issues with the file size.

Cheers

Pep

Thanks for uploading Pep.  I look forward to reading this, I love Martin Buckley's work.  And I'm sure we haven't broken any copyright laws.

I can well imagine my brother is going to enjoy reading this article as he has a RHD Flaminia Coupe as per the article. It does need restoring, including the engine, but basically it is pretty good shape.  One of 48 RHD coupes ever made apparently and one of a few in Aus.

Have been on at him to get this one under cover as soon as possible.  I posted some pics of his Lancia over on the BB previously.

Opps  ;)

This is one of my favourite magazines atm, love the Buckley's work as well, he wrote a piece recently on his experiences with Alfa's was a good read.
