Spotted on the Streets: EL CHEAPO Edition!

Spotted on the Streets: EL CHEAPO Edition!

I was just about to give up on seeing anything interesting on my lunch walk this beautiful afternoon, when I heard fantastic noise and turned around to see one of my favorite cars in Sacramento!  This is EL CHEAPO, driven by Michael Blanchard of Barber's Shop Automotive barbersshopauto.com.  It's an Alfa Romeo powered hot rod, and it's magnificent!  I added an old engine shot  from my archives to give you an idea of why I love this vehicle.

Mike waves somewhat nervously as I take his picture (we've only met once and chatted briefly).

Now that's Italian....mostly?
