Rather than owning a delicate show car, Alfa Romeo collector Manuel Leon Minassian prefers cars with a bit more gusto. He often buys cars that have been neglected or are unwanted by the average buyer, and he is extremely picky as to how he will bring them back to life. He’s bought and sold countless amounts of cars in his lifetime, and there’s likely not an end in site. Although he prefers not to mention the exact number of vintage cars he owns, there’s one of them that he holds very close, a 1972 Alfa Romeo Berlina. Customized to his personal satisfaction, the work in this Berlina hints at remnants of his childhood as a rambunctious Alfa driver of only thirteen years old.
