18/06/06 - Auto Italia photoshoot, the real ones!

It was a mad rush to make sure the Matta appeared at National Alfa Day, at Boughton House, for these pictures. I finished rebuilding the engine (see the big end "Tecnico" page) into the little hours of the night before! On the morning I could not get the engine to run properly and had to strip the carb down...some Italian sand had been dislodged during the rebuild!!!

But we made it...and the article in Auto Italia looked stunning.
