Marco from Germany says hello

Post by Marco75 »

Hello everyone, my name is Marco Brestitsch and I live in the south of germany (near Karlsruhe). Despite, I'm just 23 years old I like older cars alot, because imo newer cars are not the same anymore, as they used to be, even if they do everything better. Also at work I work alot with old Alfas and Maseratis :)

I own 3 Transaxle Alfas, one red Alfa 75 1.8 for daily drive (Well, the red turned more into a mix between pink and purple :lol: and it received some scratches and dents from retards, not caring about other people's cars and soon it reaches 300.000km but hopefully will see better days )
2nd one is a 1976 alfetta gt 1.8 1st series, which I bought very cheap but it needs a
complete restoration and is stored until I have time for it.
The other 75 is a 1987 75 Turbo America which I bought from France. Sadly to say, few weeks after I bought it, the engine went kaputt, but it was my fault.Was really a beginners mistake.. car had a chiptuning to raise boost and I used to hot spark plugs, so I burned a hole into one piston :( This happened already 3 years ago.
Then i decided, to make not just the engine new, but also do some work here and there..you know how it happens :lol:
Sadly I did not have much time for the car over the last 2 years, so I did not make a big progress :(
I will add some pictures ;)

Also I own 2 33s. One I got for free, but it has alot of rust, and its just standing around.
2nd one is a 1.7 16v that already has a rollcage and some other nice stuff and really 0 rust. But I want to finish the 75 Turbo first, before I start doing sth on this one.

There is no marriage planned atm :lol:
I realized, I need to make new pictures tomorrow ;)
It's not that much.. its a 3hr trip to the ring from my home, so if I have time, I would love to join :) (was there already maybe 10 times but only as spectator for 24hr race, oldtimer gp and so on but never with my own car, so it was on my "to-do" list for next year anyway ;)
Here is a little "teaser" of what the car looked when I bought it and what i did already.
