Il Giro di Phoenix

Post by AZRuss124 » Sat Jan 05, 2019 2:40 pm

It's that time of year ago for this annual event. Go to Phoenix sister city website to register. John and I did a different format last year that involved a drive to the country rather than the usual scavenge hunt. Will do something similar this year. Since this is the only "official" fiat event, it would be great to see a good turnout.

What, no one out here interested in this?

This is pretty much the only organized event in the valley each year.

What Russ did last year was a blast.

Once again, John and I went rogue and headed off on our own. We tried to tempt others to follow suit but none bought in. Turned out to be a nice warm day for the drive to Saguaro lake.

What's that spoiler on the Blue and Black Fiat.....I really like that.

The spoiler is a one-off of my own design. the original one I made was for my 70 and it didn't have the cut-out in the middle. I modified it to push air into the underbumper grill. The car also has one-off rockers and rear quarter rockers. Not just for looks....they actually work.
