We’ve heard from Matteo before. A few weeks ago, I shared his video giving the backstory of the Maserati Biturbo, the boxy coupe and sedan duo that ushered in the multi-spool era and saved the brand. This week, he’s got some history from another Italian automaker, this time with a design house in tow as well. … [Read more...] about The Alfa Romeo Junior Z Was A Kammback Kid
