New Millenove Book

H.Jürgen Döhren, the author and publisher has kindly provided the following short introduction to his new Millenove book.

This compendium, published for the first time in German and English, is unrivalled on the market as a brand biography. This book represents the first detailed documentation of the model history of the Alfa Romeo 1900, including all its derivatives and the associated coachbuilders, presented in a fascinating form.

All the coachbuilders who designed very special vehicles for the 1950s era are introduced. Innovative in technical terms, but also progressive, even extravagant in their styling, at the time it was above all the Italian designers who set milestones with their creations.

The complete development of the 1900 sedan, all coupes and convertibles based on the 1900 floorpan, but also very special Alfa Romeos like the Sportiva, BAT or Disco Volante are described in detail and highlighted.

Mille

The Mille was spectacular and beyond expectation and an incredible amount of fun. Can you imagine driving as fast as you can, running all red lights, driving on the sidewalks and racing the police, all to the encouragement of about every Italian in the country

 Oh and the parties.I first got interested in the Mille when in 2015 I visited Brescia the day of the start of the race.  There were about 80,000 people drinking beer on a hot afternoon in a medieval city then 400 classic race cars wove thru the town with zero crowd control. I knew then I had to enter.
