A good idea Nick, over the last month I have spotted a Montreal - assume it was Fred Lennard's out for a blast on the North-Western on a Sunday - looked great ! and a GTV6 blatting through Remuera. I usually spot a 33 every week or so on the roads, there are actually quite a few Alfas being driven daily round Aucks- many of them 147s, 156s, 166s of course

Was it bronze or white?

I still see old Alfas being piloted around Auckland but I'm still partial to the 75s...

I am pretty sure it wasn't white so must have been bronzey - certainly was light coloured, I saw it coming the other driection I was going into the city about the Rosebank Rd overpass on the NthWestern, did a double-take: very nice. There are a few 105 coupes that are daily driven into the city along Tamaki Drive too, usually see them most weeks. That black re-engined GT Junior on TMe for 20k at the mo lives locally as I have spotted it quite a few times around the Ellerslie area also.

Yeah...see quite a few club members commuting

That GTJ looks like a dogs breakfast. I saw it in Newmarket just after it first went on sale... I think the owner's a bit deluded...$20K Lira maybe!!

It does like quite horrible imo , how can you ask 20k for that when the guy with the gtv6 on there was asking for 18k !

Maybe on his tm add he forgot to mention the twin turbos , straight cut gear box , the heat seeking missile's in the boot........

The odometer is all over the place on that car according to CarJam, he's pretty upfront about it being his idea of an Alfa I guess. Though the fact that the interior has been stripped away [I think from memory] and it is a re-bigger-engined model would affect its value I would think for 105-lovers??? I don't really know the realistic value of 105 series cars at the moment, I thought most were 15 - 25kish??

Saw a beautiful white Alfa Romeo Montreal in Newsome Street in Onehunga (rego RARE 1) just now.

It was parked outside the warehouse where the guy has a 75, 164, 80's GTV and a Giulietta parked in the street. When I've driven past when the doors are open there are race car shells etc inside. Anyone know him?

Yup that's Tony who runs performance automotive

He has a nice spider hiding away up the back of his shop as well

The sud race car shells that you have seen probably belong to alfa club guys but he has his own alfetta sedan race car project that should be something special as well

that would be Michael Wyatt's (local Architect) Giulia Spider-he also has a Sprint Speciale, a trio of topolino and some other alfas tucked away.
