At first glance I thought it was a funky BMW 2000, but it turned out to be (I believe) an Alfa Romeo Giulia, built 1962- 1978. On 46th Ave. in SF. Soulful little car.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

  1. excellent cars
    love Alfa – fast reliable economic
    after ww2, usa prohibited italy from making weapons, including aircraft
    so italy made ferraris, maseratis, alfas
    best metal casting on the planet
    when gm/ford/chrysler opened plants in Mexico, they brought in italian engineers to teach how to cast metals, make engines, transmissions etc

  2. Like the Italian stone masons who came to Santa Barbara around the turn of the century to build mansions in the Montecito area, and also to build the beehive lime kilns and charcoal ovens in Nevada…
