It is a 1968 Alfa Spyder
in case you didn’t know what a modified Alfa Spyder looks like. I was unsure when the pictures where first sent to me. Its a cool car and I hope to get more back story on it soon.
this is what the project started life as.
And this is the most recent finished version, quite a transformation if you ask me. So lets take a look at what it takes to go from windshield to finished car.
The vast majority of the body was hand formed over wood custom cut wood forms. It is a lot of work but leads to the amazing body you see above. It took many shapes and a lot of changes through time. You will see below how this car transforms into the most recent iteration of the Alfa Spyder known as Ratso Italiano.
Cars and Dogs, what could be better?
Everyone likes dogs and well anyone here likes cars. A local business in our area, Horizon Audio has hosted for the past 3 years, Dyno Days For Dogs. It is a charitable event to benefit the local Humane Society. Anyone who donated to the Humane Society got free wings from Quaker Steak and Lube. For monetary donation you can run your car on the DynaPack 3000. It is also quite a cruise in, we didn’t have the greatest weather, but it beats 90 degrees that it was last year. I am sure the dogs enjoyed the cooler weather as well.
If you are in the North East Ohio region I recommend attending this gathering in the coming years. There are a lot of great people all there to help the dogs and animals. Remember you can always donate to the Humane Society not just at these types of events. They are always looking for food, leashes and other items. Check out your local location to see what they need.
There are plenty more pics on the facebook page in the Dyno Days for Dogs album. There were a lot of great cars and some questionable ones, but hey everyone has their own tastes and budgets.
