Max once told me it had gone o'seas some time ago and he was staggered to learn what is worth these days.

Yes, that Alfa is a cracking car - anyone got any info on it? ...


I think it was a TZ1 (Aluminium body) and IIRC the TZ2's were fibreglass.

I've posted this somewhere on TNF before - Unfortunately it's presently not loading for me but I have several PC issues at the moment so you may have access.

The car is definitely the ex-Mildren TZ2. Doug Chivas and I finished third in at the Surfers 12 hr with it . The body was Aluminium for sure, and after languishing in a Melbourne garage for many years ended up with an Alfa collector in the US who has many ex race cars including ex factory F1 and Type 33 models. I saw that TZ2 at a race meeting in Palm Springs back in '96 and the owner estimated its worth at over $2 mil. then. No wonder Max is spitting chips. I know what he paid Alec for it :well:
