I just bought my first alfa!
'68 1750 GTV series 1. It's been repainted and re-upholstered but the looks really appeal to me.
I'm not sure how far to take the repairs/'restoration'. I think it certainly needs new wheels and i'm deciding between repainting the current ones (silver/grey) or shelling out for a new set (GTA's?). Also i figure i should pop some side mirrors on and maybe consider getting some appropriate badges for its boot/flanks.
Any comments/criticisms/ideas welcome!

thanks.
I wasn't sure about the roof at first but it turns out its VERY practical in Australia with the absence of air conditioning!

Lovely car! I think the wheels would look good in silver too. Is the sunroof a factory item? You realize of course that you have now contracted the Alfa disease we all suffer from here?

2004 GT 3.2 V6 (Stromboli Grey).
2008 159 TI Sportwagon 2.4 JTDM (Stromboli Grey).
1987 75 3 litre (red). My first 75 and now my son's.
!989 75 3 litre (black). Shared project with my son.
2000 156 2 litre Twin Spark, ( Cosmos Blu metallic), my daughter's car.

Past Alfas
1990 75 3 litre Potenziata (black), now sold & living in Newcastle NSW.
1990 75 3 litre Potenziata (grey, sadly deceased due to fire).
1982 GTV 2 litre, red, (daughter's first Alfa)
2 x 1992 164s, (1 red, 1 grey).
2 x 1988 33s, (both red).

I'm sure it's an aftermarket, but it was apparently done when the car was pretty young.
regarding the 'alfa disease', i've found that driving the car, cleaning the car or buying stuff for the car reduces the burning/itch!

No No No!!! Don't mistake an easing of the symptoms for a cure of the disease. There is no anti-virus.

And on the 7th day, he made Alfas....

There are only 10 types of people.... those who understand binary, and those who don't.

Stop, Stop, Stop,

point taken, but guys if we cant express our opinions here, then where?

I was not judging anybody, but lets be honest, if somebody thinks something doesn't look good, then they should be able to say so.

for example, on my car, I have 2 idiot (Talbot) mirrors on the front wings of my Spider, plus another on the door.

I think these look NAFF, I havnt changed them because the first owner has screwed them onto the wings, and if I took them off I'd have holes in the wings.

The mirrors spoil the whole line and symmetry of the car, I accept that, and people have said so, so what,they expressed their opinion and it didn't bother me what soever , so guys, lets not be so sensitive.

But if anybody felt offended, I'm sorry.

I think I've said my piece, so lets get on with our lives.

Richard

Hi my name is Greig & I'm an Alfaholic..........

Yup, got the disease bad, also have the itch syndrome & mine only gets relief when I buy another Alfa.

As to cptn WOW's wheels, I've got the same set, they are either original Cromadora's or a South African knock-off called Tiger Wheel Crusaders. My friend Ian's are done in fine silver, with the spoke edges & outside rim in polished aluminium, I plan to do mine in very light charcoal grey, with polished spoke edges & a polished outer rim.

These are the only set of after market rims I have for Alfa's & are destined for my '69 GT 1300 J, all my other cars run on original steel rims & hubcaps.

The sunroof is an after-market item, made by Webasto. It was discussed a few years ago on this site - check the GT/GTV archives.

I'd guess that your 1750 was exported to Oz from South Africa, there are lots of GTV's here with Webasto sun roofs.

With regard to comments - to each his own & also to each his opinion, Richard's comments & apology are noted, so let's move on.

Richard - That's a lovely Touring Spider, white really does suit the lines of those cars.

Ciao
Greig
Sunny South Africa
Some 750's
Some 101's
Some 105's
Some others

Some folks prefer modern Alfas, others prefer older cars. Some like them stock and others like them modified. Some regions of the world like white-walled tires. Not everyone has your taste in Alfas. And there is NOTHING wrong with that.

So, please continue to enjoy your lovely stock Touring Spider, which I know you love. I will continue to drive and love my more modern (and modified) '88 Milano (75) 3.0L Verde, my slightly modified '82 Spider and my '84 GTV6 Maratona, while others will do the same with their own wonderful Alfas - RWD, FWD, AWD, 4, 6 or 8 cylinder, boxer, in-line or V engined...there's room for everyone here.

I'm with you on this one.
