AlpinA PlaquE

Snagged this off of Ebay a few weeks back, old school ('70's, early '80's ?) AlpinA plaquard.  Remarkably good condition, was inside the car glued to a plastic bit on a BmW 32oi.  Dimensions are 21.25mm high x 117.60mm long x 4.37mm thick (back of plaque to face of AlpinA lettering).  Into the collection it goes.....

AlpinA - MomO Sportlenkrad (AuctioN)

350mm (35cm) AlpinA (momo) 3-spoke sport steering wheel.  Highly sought after, this one appears to be in VG condition (although the image quality is not the greatest so hard to say what condition the leather is in - silver spokes look very good.  BIN = EUR 899,00.

BmW M1 ProcaR RennmotoR

Kudos to the photographer of this BmW M1 Procar motor.   Just the detail work alone on the fuel injection lines is a thing of beauty.  From 3.5 liters, these motors made somewhere around 470bhp.

2015 SonomA MotorsportS FestivaL (Luigi CSL)

Top image is of my beautiful wife in front of someone's (VERY) nice 1972 Porsche 911S (through the grill fog lights, pepita/houndstooth Recaro sports seats.  Beautiful car that looked to be in original paint......She has very good taste!  It was nice to finally meet my friend Steve Walker and have a look at his "Luigi" CSL race car.  The car is Luigi #001 and won I want to say five (5) races during the 1976 season.  The car is immaculately prepared and I have to say looks better in person than in pictures.  These are the money shots of the AlpinA slide throttle/Kugelfischer fuel injected race motor.  I watched Steve run the car in some warm ups - very fast (although he indicated they were having some teething problems with the injection).
