Triumph TR4s at Ron Shimek’s Auto Service Center

Written by Ken Altes

This was my first car. It was a white 1962, with an early Chevy V8 with solid lifters and a three speed Chevy transmission. It was fast and put me in the hospital for weeks. I told this story to Ron Shimek, and he said his first car was a 1961 Alfa Romeo 2000 also with the same Chevy 283 V8 in it.  His car survived his ownership, mine did not.  These are very handsome cars designed by Giovanni Michelotti.  Visit Ron at his shop in North Austin.
