Lamp Covers and Steering Wheel

Rallye look of the old days. I just sewed a pair of protector caps for my 160 mm BOSCH high beams. Special thanks to Boris for the checkered genuine leather he used for the VW bug bra.

And this is the original interior of the Alfa GT 1300 junior (step front) -
the two spoke steering wheel looks a little bit simple and dreary.

My latest mod: Wooden Hellebore flat steering wheel. If you need help to get such a bright, shining surface I recommend Claudio Tescari from Classic Car Parts in Cologne, Germany.

Scuderia Non Originale (TM)

Scuderia Non Originale is a trademark of Gary Williams, Washougal, Washington, USA. Used by permission."

In 2005 I joined as "Director of the German branch".

Gary williams explains it like this:
"SNO was founded by a group of Alfisti in October of 2004, at the annual Concorso Italiano in Monterey, CA. The charter members live in the San Francisco Bay Area, mostly in the region south of San Francisco widely known as Silicon Valley. They include three engineers (Tom Sahines, Richard Lane and Ben Lamprecht), an auto parts manager and former Alfa mechanic (Steve Smith), a former Yahoo web wizard who now works for the government (Ted Williams), and former business owner turned lay-about (Gary Williams).
Cars include several GTV's & GTA's, an assortment of Giuliettas, a Junior Zagato, a Giulietta Spider race car, a Milano Verde, a stunning Turbo Alfetta GTV, and an ever growing list of other Alfas, Panteras, Ferraris, Maseratis, and other Italian makes."

There are only two requirements to belong to this group:
You must be more enamored with Italian cars than is emotionally or financially healthy, and
You must not be offended by fellow enthusiasts who change the wheels on their cars, modify mechanical systems, or make other changes, such as painting their cars non-stock colors.

To Become a Member

1. Reread rules 1 & 2 listed above. By joining SNO, you are acknowledging that you will pay NO dues, attend NO meetings, and will refrain from mocking non-originale Alfas and other Italian sporting machines ... at least not openly.

2. Send an e-mail to : SNO at greend dot com.
