A few pics of Louis' awesome 24V 75RS (I hope I got that right Louis), and my ex-Milano Gold, which Travis K now owns.

I think the 75/Milano is one of the best looking alfa sedans that Alfa ever made. I prefer the square edged 80's look to the new 159's and Brera's (mostly because the new genreration of Alfa's are heavy and slow, compared to the competion anyway). Any way I think it is a great idea to start a 75/Milano picture thread.

EMC (Wayne) does the EVO kits (which is nice but not enough for me) and Vince specialises in Veloce kits!

My kit (as above) is from Holland and is made from moulds taken from the original "works" cars (very expensive 2k+ euro +VAT!!)
and not only that ive got to widen the track quite a bit and fit 17 or 18" wheels

Did you have to bash in the back of the front fenders to fit the 17/18's? I would think the large-ish rolling diameter would cause rubbing (binding!?) at the back?

There's heaps of room to fit large wheels in the back - The front is where the problem is at.

When I ran 17x7s (7.5? I can't remember now) with 215/40/17s I had issues with scrubbing in the front under full lock with compression, so roundabouts that were on an incline. The rear never came close to an issue.

I'll throw some of my pictures up later, but hopefully in the not too distant future I'll have more 'special' pictures

ROCK ON

I agree with you!

I could have worded it more carefully, but I'm talking about the back of the front wheel wells.
