Born for the track

Such a nice comment Simon. Thank You.
This might be a suitable opportunity to comment on my experience at the race track.
Several things you must know are that my car is a street car.
We were following a pace car on the track so you could only go so fast.
My 7 year old boy was in a car seat in the back.
But.....what I learned first hand that day is that it is true what they say about GTV's and all (or most) Alfa's, they come alive on the track. They truly feel so special out there. The best way to describe it is to say my car was happy zipping around those corners and accelerating out of those turns. I have a whole new level of respect for Alfa and for my car!
I know i'm preaching to the choir but it was a revelation to me. Even spirited driving on the street doesn't show of the potential that these cars have.
What a wonderful experience for all three of us!

I've had other gt's in the past and they were nowhere near as nice to drive as this one.

She's original! A true virgin. I have the stock wheels in the garage also. My feeling is this car in 10yrs $60k to $80k. A lot less GT's around compared to 911's and look where their at. Just an opinion. I
