164 Picture Thread

I know there is a thread elsewhere for ALL Alfa pics, but what about one HERE for just the 164?
Anyone?

I agree with this idea too. Lets start a Thread with pictures only (perhaps comments from the owner only). The key to the thread should be about the pictures just so people can view the various cars only. If some one wants to make a comment, they could start a new thread title "Post # from the picture thread". Just an idea.

Alrighty then. And while your own car is best, feel free to post up any great shots of any 164.

Nice car, so how do u like it compared to other 164 models you've had? I personally love the 24V engine

Current: 89' Milano Gold(sold)
Next: 164 S

Be warned though, Alfas can have a strange effect on owners; ‘Alfaholic’ a recognised condition among car enthusiasts

I like it because as a 95 it is the last and the "best" (in some ways). The 94/95 looks are more modern and I like the chrome. The 24v does make a nice growl.

The 91-93's have their good points too. Though the interior is not as well appointed, it works better. The radio is easier to use and no HVAC readings problems.
Also, the 12 v engine seems to have more low end grunt. With an automatic, the 12 v is really nice (better in fact, than a 24 v auto I had). This one is a manual, so it really is my favorite. I just bought Alessio 17" wheels, and they will go on soon.

Ok then
Here we have before and after pics.
First is the super I bought about 3 months ago. Then cam belt snapped and picked up a cloverleaf (QV) that was beyond repair and used the heads body kit, wheels and interior. It's been running but in the middle of more work needed. We'll get there just don't know when, but can't wait to drive it again. Just feels special and different.

Before


After

That Super is BEAUTIFUL. That is silver? Not a color on the LS (Super elsewhere) available in the USA. Also, those are 16" wheels correct?

Great post idea! Here are a few shots of my 1994 LS. They were taken at various car shows and the first one is from the national AROC convention in Tulsa. I came in second place to the Q on the left (great car by the way). By the way, photography credit must be given to Andrew Garcia, who took this picture. It looks awesome. The other two photographs were taken by me at the 2006 ItalianCarFest in Grapevine last September. I have others but these are some of the best.

Cheers,
