I agree Mark, that's too much.

When Alfa returns to the States maybe we'll see cars like this on the street racing scene. If it helps rebuild Alfa's popularity here, what could it hurt?

Why is car styling so cool?

I bet that sqaure thing on the hood, tunnels air through it, which pushed the whole motor closer to the floor, and your car then handle's like it's on rails.

Haha! I never woulda thought of that.

Here are some shots taken while having my clutch done at Santo's Italian Car Repair (Italcarguy's pop). Can you say "donor GTV"?

almost crying!

The poor bastard, man I feel for that guy. Not the money, it is the time and effort that is required to complete a restoration.

A fire extinguisher is a definite requirement for any car that you just could not give a **** if it suddenly burnt to the ground. Happened to a friends Lancia ...

I think I will weld fire extinguisher bracket mounting nuts to the floor before I even paint my GTV ... especially after seeing that picture.

I also bought parts for my car of a GTV that hit a power pole on its very first drive after a restoration!!!! Very sad and all, but what an idiot ... one has to give oneself time to get used to any new car (new to the driver that is), and take your time before imitating Schumacher Only once you have a feel for how the car responds can you start to explore ... safely atleast.

Wrong way around, I meant a fire extinguisher is requried for a car that you DO give a **** about.

BTW: How come I cannot EDIT my own posts?

I was having problems with my gas gauge and the light was constantly on indicating empty. I had a bout of insomnia the night before and didn't sleep so I probably shouldn't have been driving, but was on the Long Island Expressway ( should be named parking lot...) and I kept looking at red light and the guy infront of me stopped. By the time I realized this I didn't have enough stopping time and shoved the nose of my car under his trailer hitch. Man, that ticked me off. It was my own fault which made it worse. And it was one of the few parts I didn't need to be replaced in the up and coming restoration.

This was before restoration. you can see see the restored car in the photogallery.

And I have to agree - the whole flame thing on cars is a litle on the tacky side. Now there is a time and a place for tacky ( I had holstein cow seat covers before the restoration... ) but tacky doesn't belong on a beautiful shiny Alfa. My opinion and a $1.50 won't even get you a cup of coffee

'79 Spider Veloce (for sale see bb classifieds)
'87 Milano - looks like hell, but runs well.
