A RARE AND BEAUTIFUL ALFA


Thanks to Pete Vack at VeloceToday for his very favourable review of Alfa Romeo Montreal – The dream car that came true.

Here is an extract from it.

"Bruce Taylor’s second book, “Montreal - The dream car that came true”, is the perfect companion to the superb “Alfa Montreal - The essential companion” (read review). It’s full of useful and interesting information, not to mention 575 color illustrations, almost all focusing on some aspect of the Montreal. For Montreal owners or would-be owners, this becomes like the “essential companion”, essential. With a dearth of literature available on this rare and beautiful Alfa, there is surely a place on the shelf for this book.

On the surface, “The dream car that came true” appears to be a glossy ode to the Alfa Montreal. But Taylor is deeper and better than that; he knows and presents Montreals as one who not only appreciates the feminine form (and there is a great deal of that in both books, but I’m not complaining) yet can easily get down to engineering concepts (Taylor is retired from CERN in Switzerland) and the mechanical nuts and bolts."
