If you have an Alfa Romeo, this is the event to justify dusting it off and bringing it out- side. To celebrate the 50 years our Northwest Alfa Romeo Club has been around, we’re going to have a party. A gathering of friends, old and new to hang out, surrounded by Alfa Romeos, Alfa parts, and Alfisti. Be prepared to swap a few tall tales about cars, events, challenges, and special moments that are all part of Alfa ownership. Perhaps we’ll laugh about how we got caught up in this passion we all seem to share.
The event is at the garage and home of Jay Nuxoll, who, 50 years ago as a young lawyer and Alfa guy, helped gather a few other like minded crazies and founded the Northwest Alfa Romeo Club. Jay had owned Alfas before the club, and now after more than 50 years, still drives and surrounds himself with Alfas. He is truly the definition of Alfa passion.
When: June 10th 6:30 PM - 9 PM Come for the cake, friends, or cars.
Where: Jay Nuxoll’s G’rage Mahal 13843 SE 10th Street Bellevue, WA 98005
All are welcome! Member, former member, relative of a possible member, future member, or simply can spell Alfa Romeo, then plan to attend. Snack foods, Cake, and drinks will be provided!
Located in the Interbay area of Seattle, hiding behind other businesses is an un-marked building that houses a place with an Italian name, but is far from Italy. Its the Automobili Lamborghini Advanced Com- posite Structures Laboratory (ACSL). Known as the “Lambo Lab”, it was based at the University of Wash- ington campus from 2007 to 2013, but since January 2014 it exists as a stand-alone Non-Profit Organiza- tion (NPO) in Seattle, Washington. The ACSL is responsible for the development of all CFRP technologies and BIW concepts at Automobili Lamborghini, S.p.A..
The Director of the Lambo Lab, Dr. Feraboli had been a Professor in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at the University of Washington where he helped win $4 Million in funding for various research projects, mainly from Lamborghini, Boeing, and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Working in conjunction with a design firm that focuses on product development, ACSL has delivered products including the Automobili Lamborghini Sesto Elemento monocoque and suspension control arms, the Callaway Diablo Octane and Razr Hawk golf drivers, and the Union FC snowboard binding. Other customers include Northrop Grumman, Volvo, Honda, Rocky Mountain Bicycles, Nike, Mitsubishi, Quantum Composites, and MR Collection/Looksmart.
Now... NWARC members, have a chance to enjoy a guided tour of the facility with Dr. Feraboli (Director) and Bonnie Wade (Lab Manager) on Saturday June 13th. This is a wonderful opportunity to see the research and science behind why Lamborghinis are fast, Boeing planes fly, and much more. The challenge is we are limited to 32 guests total.
