I seen a red one up north on the M6, J44 last week, not sure if 2000gtv, 1750 or Gt junior. It’s the first I’ve ever seen out on the roads and it looked stunning.

I've seen a Dark Green GTV stepnose in Geneva two weeks back... made me smile also...but brought up a thought: "OMG!!!! This little tiny gem is lost in the sea of modern tin top SUVs & cars.... and seems so fragile"

On three separate days over the last week, I have seen three different 105 Coupe's on the journey home from work - having never seen one out and about before (except for at National Alfa Days..) That's the A40 between Burford and Cheltenham

Actually I saw one here in central Arizona 6 years ago. When I was in my late teens in Los Angeles I'd see 3 or 4 a week!! Of course that was the late 60's.

I’ve been driving mine daily
(Brisbane)

I need to check the chain tension
Either that or it’s pinking
Or rusting faster
