I want to build the engine to about 160 - 175 horsepower, and put an improved suspension on it, but not to harsh for daily driving. I dont' want the engine wound too tight, but I want 'substantial' power for daily driving. Perhaps a newer engine than the original.
Porsche synchros for the transmission, of course
No intent to make it in any way authentic - pick the best features of all the Alfa years, and perhaps some things not even from Alfa at all, such as better seats, etc.
My object is to build a car for ME, regardless of resale value, and then to drive it whenever I choose.
I haven't done any research into it, but I don't think this is an impossible dream or impossibly expensive, except for the lack of mechanical skill I have and lack of garage space to build it in.
Oh, that and the $20K to buy and build it with. That reminds me. I have to check my lottery tickets...
