The Autocross was great fun. More than 50 cars negotiated a
beautiful course designed by Eric Storhok and John Hoard from the Detroit AROC Chapter. Ines Storhok as well as John's
daughters Danielle and Gabrielle worked very hard to ensure the success of this event, and so did many others.

Art Taxman (top) and Lou Daugherty had a great time dueling
with their 1959 and 1958 Giuliettas. Hard to believe that these cars are 45 and 44 years old and not only are beautiful
but also remain great fun to drive. As noted by Eric Storhok, it is not common to see two of these beauties competing
in the same event.
Maestro Richard Sirgany of Auto Volante in Miami had this
1971 GTV ready just in time for the AROC autocross.

More Spidermen in action: these two guys drove the same car
from the Detroit AROC. They are Jeff Koncsol (above) and Ed Argalas (below).

the GT Junior driven by Frank Smith.
Il Presidente Marc Mosko did not feel much like driving on
the day of the autocross. On the contrary, SFAROC member Chris Sasso was eager to run, but his beloved Spider refused
to start and he showed up at the track with a.... truck. It goes without saying that Marc went to sleep and let Chris
loose in the red GTV. By the way, this car has a 2 liter Twin Spark engine that was transplanted by Maestro Sirgany.
Below, the GTV6 of Joe Garcia, another "creation" of Maestro Sirgany.
Same car top and bottom, but different drivers: above, Lady
Dee Schweikle, below her husband George who incidentally posted FTD for Alfa Romeo cars.
Below, next three pictures: the Hoards showed up in force,
father John and daughters Danielle and Gabrielle. I hope to have correctly identified the three of the them, top to bottom.
While I am sure that John is in the first picture, let me know if I guessed the girls right.
SFAROC member Frank Vidal drove his PT Cruiser like an Alfa!
Below, Susan and Jay Maveety at the wheel of their Audi Romeo.
Your web-master was here too!
Ines and Eric Storhok took home this memorabilia from the
2003 AROC Convention.
