He Built This Alfa Romeo Giulia, It Built His Career
Most people use their job as a way to get a car. Dorian Valenzuela,
however, is not most people: he used his 1970 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300 Ti to
land a job, in this case at Singer Vehicle Design, where he helps create
that company's bespoke Porsche 911s.
Nor did Valenzuela follow the typical path to a career in the automotive
world. While still in university–where he was studying transportation in
the hope of one day working on a race team–he applied for an internship
at NASA and eventually landed a position at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Valenzuela would go on to spend more than ten years in the aerospace
industry and some of his work, in the form of the Mars rovers, can now be
seen roaming around that red planet.
Always a car enthusiast, Valenzuela spent his evenings and weekends at home
wrenching on his Alfa and Porsche 964. One day, needing parts for the
Porsche, he responded to an advertisement and found himself walking into
the Singer shop, just outside of Los Angeles. The clean, classic builds and
attention to detail in the Singer cars immediately resonated with him, as
he shared similar goals for his Alfa. Once the folks at Singer got a look
at that Alfa, they agreed. Valenzuela soon found himself changing careers,
moving from the space age to the world of vintage (or, at least,
Given the time he’s invested in the car and the doors it has opened for
him, it’s hardly surprising that this Alfa Romeo has a special place in
Valenzuela’s heart. Indeed, as Valenzuela puts it, the car is an
extension of him and while he doesn’t consider himself an artist, this
car is absolutely a work of art.
Alfa Romeo Giulia ti (Super)
Dorian’s passion for his unassuming box shaped Alfa Romeo is infectious.
The Alfa Giulia ti is said to have been designed by the wind and shows us
that form can both follow and flourish behind function.
This sensual piece of film making, much of which was shot with super 8
film, reminds us that perhaps there was once a time when ordinary objects
we relied on just simply had more soul.
