The Maserati is simply amazing.

The Alfa (Romeo) Owners of New England allowed us to tag along recently on a glorious Saturday morning outing to Precision Automotive Restoration, Inc. in Newburyport Precision offers services ranging from routine servicing of special interest vehicles, to race-car preparation, to award-winning “body-off restorations.” We knew it was going to be a memorable day when the show started in the parking lot with a member’s Alfa Montreal – a vehicle that features a V-8 formed by melding two Alfa four-cylinder engines (including two fuel pumps). It continued with a welcoming sniff from Truman, an English boxer and Precision’s official greeter. Inside, there were some interesting complete cars such as the pair of Porsche 914-6 race cars, one an original GT with racing provenance, the other a beautifully built clone by the folks at Precision. There was also a BMW 1600 in immaculate original condition, a 1957 Porsche Carrera, a 289-powered “real” Cobra, and a wood-framed Morgan in for upholstery work. Works in progress ranged from a 1965 Ferrari 275 GTBC race car that’s being “retired” and restored to a show car. – From
