Glynn Motorsports Gathering

On a gorgeous summer day, Alfa motorheads got their annual fix of techno talk as Paul Glynn, Michael Wrigley, and Ian Anderson played their roles as the Alfa answer-men for over three hours. Combined with their expertise, the Glynn Motorsports shop's always impressive inventory of equipment, lifts, tools, and engine rebuild room are a reminder of their long-standing reputation to diagnose and fix what Murphy, aging, neglect, or Alfa hackers have bestowed on your sports car.

For the mechanically minded, suspension components were laid out, undercarriages were visible on lifts, several Giulietta racecars were present (including Paul's winning ride at Thompson), and a Duetto and GTV were undergoing rehab.

As in the past, many club members re-connected, if they had not already at recent convention events. We lost count of the number of Alfa owners (and Alfa wannabes) attending who brought their sports cars (and trucks) to Rowley. For example, Fran O'Connor brought his new 4C, Gary Hoyt and Rod Burdick arrived from R.I., Roger Carlson had his wonderful 2000 Touring Spider on board from Connecticut, Tom Larsen brought his Giulietta racer, and Giorgio Kradjian had his Giulia Nuova 1300. Duettos, GTVs, Spiders, and Milanos were plentiful, but the 164 crowd must have been at the beach.

So, start saving your new tech questions again for next year's event for the GMS answer-men.Tiny Quadrifoglio
