  1. Yes it means system and you are right it could be an exhaust - Auspuffanlage, but they mean Doppelvergaseranlage. Dual carb system! We are talking about Alpina A1 Anlage or A2 Anlage etc in germany. So I think they mean the carbs, not an exhaust. Alpina itself use the term Anlage for their Dual Webers. The dual carb system was the main part of their business, not an exhaust.
  2. Yes! Alpinaanlage means Webers, Leichtmetallreifen is a bit stupid. Better is Leichtmetallfelgen - Alloy rims not alloy tyres;-) and a antenna. Nothing special but cool anyway to have the history!
  3. Do you want set of 4 new Turbo Flares? Euro 200.- plus shipping to USA. If you are interested, I will calculate the shipping costs for you. The parts are light and not too big, so it will be not too expensive. Regards Wolfgang
  4. Here a good source for the important "J" http://argent.fia.com/web/fia-public.nsf/whistj?open
  5. Yes N'Ring but not the pits, it is the paddock. The place still exists and it is called "historisches Fahrerlager" . It is the second entry to the modern paddock. Sometimes there are events with old cars. You are right, there are a lot of options to make an Alpina car. But I think, if he likes pig cheek cars, the focus should be of a period correct car, the second step could be the typical Alpina color. But, to remake a period correct car, he should know something about the periods! And there are really big differences in allowed and existing technical details between the years. It doesn't matter which tuner sold or modified the part. Maybe you can use 3piece Alpinas if you want an Alpinastyle car, if not, use BBS or Minilites, doesn't matter. But, for example, do not use an Aluminium radiator in a pre 71 car, or these modern adjustable camber plates. Do not try to make the car better with modern knowledge than it was in the period! We have exactly these problems in historic motorsports and I also try to make the car better with not really exactly definied parts to find the one or other second, but in a streetcar with "race" look you can make it nearly 100 percent authentic. @ alan, maybe you should read the different FIA appendix J of the periods and the homologation papers to get in touch with the regularities of these days.
  6. No, for sure. Some samples of racecars of different periods. Alpina is car manufacturer since 1983!
  7. If you copy the car in the picture, you make a clone of a copy :-)))
  8. ....no, I believe I have never seen that or a similar instrument live in a car......I used the "normal" Alpina instruments, shown in your first post, before I re-designed my instrument cluster with the stack rev-counter in the middle. Cheers W.
  9. Yes, AMS or RallyeRacing. I had only the pic, found somewhere in the internet. I never had the focus on rim manufacturer history (too bad) and I have no longer any old AMS issues. I have only a few of these rar "ONS-Mitteilungen" of 1971 laying around. My research for "group2 1971" is finished, so I do not need these things anymore. But UAI has still old AMS issues. I think you know him from the 911Reg, so ask him, maybe he has more infos.
  10. No no, not Lemmerz. This is another company.
  11. Yupp, it is the well known S caliper. 89mm Yes, the Andexer car.
  12. Ask Andy Andexer, the german cabrio restauration guru, he owned or maybe still owns an Alpina racecar with the Alberts! If you google andexer and alpina you will find pics of the car with that wheels. The green one with that particular orange front. But now I remember, the wheels called also Limmer. Maybe Limmer was the manufacturer and Albert the design or the reseller... somerhing like that. The name is well known, but never did any research about that history.
  13. I have also the 71 Hack edition. There is one or two really important pics in it. For group2 period g2 (group2 1970-1971) appendix k racers, the pic with the aluminium ATE front caliper and the adjustable sway bar. This pic was really important for me at the beginning of historic motorracing with the 2002.
  14. Ahm , yes that is for sure, the Albert was before the Alpina. But I do not know exactly when the Albert came on the market and if the Albert was the first 3piece in general. I believe that, but there is no evidence.
  15. Yes, early use by Alpina Group5 cars in the 1600cc class and if I remember correct, the 2002 Turbos in the "big" class.
