Car of The Week- Scott’s 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint

Check out SanCap Motor Club’s Car of The Week, it is Scott Crater’s 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint which he will be bringing to the December Cars and Coffee Cruise-In!  The car is on a ship from Sweden and on its way to Jacksonville, FL.  Scott just has to find a way to get it registered in FL!   The car was used for vintage rallyes in Sweden. It was run on a mix of gravel and paved roads so it has a roll bar, race seats, five point harnesses, etc.   The car only has a little over 100 HP so its not a dragster, but for its day, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint was an amazing car and had incredible handling.  Check out Scott’s 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint below and see it in person at the SanCap Motor Club December Cruise-In!

1964 Shelby Daytona Cobra

One of the most iconic car for American classics and muscle is the 1964 Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe.  This car was especially developed to take on the legendary Ferrari 250 GT on the track and if you look at the 2 cars side by side, they are extremely similar.   The body style is very similar, but the Shelby Daytona is an American Made Machine, and you can tell.  The engine roars, we know because The SanCap Motor Club has a member with a Shelby Daytona Cobra fully Restored.  Check out SanCap Motor Clubs car of the week, our Shelby Daytona, and also video of another one racing down the track.  Take a minute to admire the sound of the cars raw power!

2004 Maserati Spyder Cambiocorsa

One of the founders of our club, Mike Stone, has an incredible modern imported super car along with his fully restored 1966 Pontiac GTO.  The car is a 2004 Maserati Spyder Cambiocorsa.  This car and specific year model is differentiated from the rest because during the 2 year duration of 2003-2004 Ferrari was in charge of the production and distribution of Maserati so this car has the same motor as a Ferrari California 360.  The sound is just incredible along with the look and handling.   Check out some awesome pictures of his car below and the engine!
