There was just no parts in Australia at the time to reasemble a complete front end for the car.So it sat at the Panel beaters for 4 months. It was resprayed in an Alfetta Blue as there was no colour code on the car!
The fellow in the Porche would also have been a rather sore however as this was pre airbags (in 1979 an air bag would probably have been a talkative female
The dent in his drivers door was substantial and also the force of inpact turned the poor Alfa thru 90 degrees so that it was facing the direction the Porche had been travelling.
I walked away with a sore neck and a cracked Sturnum (join in the front of rib cage.
