Nice GTV6 , they always look good in silver, re the spider I have it advertised on Trade Me , I think it would only work for someone with a lot of 105 parts who wants a race car, you'd be sure to have the only round tail race car in NZ though.

the spider is indeed lovely, also nice to know we have such cars around here, I wouldn't mind having a look at your Berlina's sometime.

I respect there's a lot of time and money in that rare Spider, Simon Great condition!

So nice to see a colour other than red, too. Like owning a dark-blue Ferrari. I bet some laypeople do a double-take to work out that yours is an Alfa Romeo?

Looks fantastic Richard, right colour too, by the way you pilot that white 33 you should be fast - or in the edge, this is what it looks like when we take our Alfas out with other cars

Hi

Very nice indeed, the Giulia saloon shape really suits white, and I really like the single headlight look.

Hope finishing the interior doesn't prove too difficult.

I can live with out an interior for a while, as long as all the mechanicals and body work are clean and straight I'll be more than happy driving around in it.

The paintwork looks in good nick given the age too, much better than the pinkish white paint on my Alfetta - where almost every panel is slightly different.

What is the 1300 like to drive, I've only driven 1750/2000 nords. Does it rev out nicely over 4000?

The paint is newish, it was painted 12 years ago but always garaged and never driven, so that's why it looks good. The photos also hide alot of the poorly preped paint work,



I haven't driven it much and the tacho isn't connected yet (cable needs fixing), but from what i can tell, it pulls the car along quite nicely, it has the 41:8 (5.125:1) diff so gear changes are quick and the engine pulls evenly up through the rev range, to where ever i changed gear anyway. I have driven a 1750 and 2 litre too and i think you could only tell by looking at the speedo that was a smaller engine, everything else felt the same, same noise, same swift gear changes, same throttle response.
