Gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. Light looks pretty good for photography. All cameras allowed, or just phones?

Seeing all these Alfas was very impressive. They are even more beautiful in real life.

I assume caneras are allowed. Seemed like everyone was taking lots of pics.

This is (Tom Zat's) Alfa Heaven in the US.

Very cool. Thanks for sharing. We used to fly into Wausau when my son went to summer camp in Wisconsin. Would have been fun to visit.

I wish Alfa/Maserati would display some cars at their HQ. There's plenty of room in the basement, now that the Chrysler stuff has been moved to Conner Avenue in Detroit.

re Tom Zat, there was a seen better days (or repairs) SSZ on bringatrailer recently.

I really wanted one ...
The SSZ on Bring a Trailer was a bit sad for me to watch. I remember seeing the cars in their prime, they were quite something!

Here's a picture circa 1992 of me admiring an SSZ Stradale that literally just rolled out the shop at Alfaheaven, next to one of Tom Zat's prized 2600 Spiders. The Stradales had a lot nicer fit and finish than the race cars.

Milan would be a good destination. I'd go to the museum and my wife would shop.

"circa 1992" "as a teenager"

roughly the time my teenagers were getting ready to move out - but just before a new one showed up. but right in there I got my museum visit in

I consoled myself with the B&W mailer/spec sheet, while they had fun in my Alfa's

now all of them are so big I need the truck for if/when they visit

I too remember the SSZ's when he was building them and marketing them. They were true "home-brew". I seem to remember that he was putting Milano 3.0 engines from wrecked cars into the SSZ's. As I mentioned to him back then, a pressure fed four cylinder with engineered space for a BIG air-to-air cooler and a BIG radiator would generate more power. I guess junk yard engines were a lot cheaper. Maybe a junk yard 2.9 woulds fit in there...

Eventually Tom maxed out the power available from the Busso 3.0 V6 and started using twin-turbo Nissan motors. Those were the cars that were giving Porsche race cars a run for their money.
