1974 Alfa Romeo Berlina

All of the vehicles in the shop are seasonal. They come out in the spring and are driven on the nicest of days throughout the summer and fall. For some folks the transition from driving spirited older cars in the fall to less beloved winter cars sparks a conversation about the possibility of driving an older car year round. "Can we build a year round classic car for a northern climate?" This idea runs counter to the preservationist classic car culture but we find the idea to be exciting and entirely do-able.

What better candidate than an Alfa sedan from the 70's? This Alfa will be triple fortified with epoxy seam sealer and epoxy coatings before it is returned to its original Black Cherry paint to protect it from salty roads. The weatherstripping, electrical system, lighting and HVAC will be upgraded to make it more comfortable and reliable during the winter months. Soon this 'Super Duper' Berlina will be doing donuts in the snow and dreaming of a white Christmas.
