oops! I agree the flame,scoop thing is bad enough on a rice rocket, but on one of our precious pata rockets..... HERESY!
The "special" person who did that probably is looking for one of those stickers of the kid peeing for the side window. Enough, don't want to slag too much. It is peculiar tho.

This neglected Alfetta Sprint GT (or GTV-6?) supposedly starred in the 007 flick "Live and Let Die".

What's wrong with this picture?

Here's a shot of an Alfasud being injured.

I just found this picture of a "2000 GTV SE" with a vinyl top! Egad!

If I remember correctly, Alfa dealers in the USA did have a few GTV vinyl tops put on to some of the later '73 & '74 cars. They also wanted to get an automatic version, and they probably would have sold more of them if they also had whitewall tires and an in-dash 8-track standard!

Those features were VERY popular in the mid-seventies, as were platform boots, gaucho pants, disco music and men wearing open polyester shirts (with big collars) and double-knit 'leisure-suits' with a big gold chain.

In my opinion, it was all the result of too much cocaine!

Luckily, those days (and even the nostalgia for those days) are gone!

Rev high! Alex 'Sandor' Csank

Talking

The front of that GTV has huge square Ford cortina lights. It was a "designers" attempt to sell more cars in the UK in the 70's.
It didn't work.

This thread made my heart hurt; so lets have some smiles with:

Taso, right you are patrida boy!!!!!!!!!! If you look closely at the photo Kai has posted you'll notice 2 very English features. First and foremost, righthand drive. Second is the forward postioned mid roof antenna angled to the rear. Very English, as well as the well hidden rear fog light, absence of side markers, as well as the absence of the tacked on license plate illumination plaque reading ALFA ROMEO. Definitely Euro spec. By the way, Taso, that Stradale photo just punctuates that that is the most beautiful car ever designed, period!!!!!!!!!!!

For once general, I couldn't agree with you more! The 33 Stradale is the best super car design of all time! Take the Dinos to the crusher.

Dear ar1750gtv, for your own sanity and mental well being you should always agree with the general. Be that as it may, I don't necessarily know that I'd crush the Dinos!
