  1. Factory Alfetta Sedan and GT Coupe Color Brochure

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    1982 GTV 2.0 Brochure I found this in my literature collection, in case anyone finds it edifying. No color or interior swatches, and some things are curious. It lists the sunroof as "standard," but my 1982 model does not have a sunroof. Perhaps this brochure was for UK-only spec?

    Crikey. It's been a long time coming, but I finally got my Alfetta on the road. Briefly. Turns out it needs more fettling, but it was a wonderful 45 minutes while it lasted. I snapped some photos while I waited in the rain for the flatbed to arrive... More soon.

    Hahahaha! The logo fiasco just won't go away. I was a graphic designer for a long time, and I think the new design is clean and well executed. Despite all the talk of the old logo being "iconic" and the new one just bland, that's what everyone says when a comfortable, familiar logo is...

    Does hysteresis cause valve "float?" I remember when pneumatic valve actuation appeared in Formula1 (back in the 19,000RPM days) and the reason given at the time was that a traditional valve spring simply couldn't be manufactured that would close a valve quickly enough at such elevated engine...

    I love Avorio. I will almost certainly use it. And that VW Java Green! WOW. What a fantastic color! Almost looks like a blue-green, at least in that photo, but without all the horrible "teal" feel. I dig it.

    I have always liked these greens. It looks a little like Aston Martin's "Almond Green." So many of them are metallic, though.

    Wow, Pete. Thank you for your input. "Weird" is a label I will accept and wear with pride. I feel certain it has been leveled at me in the past and I'm quite sure it will be leveled at me in the future, so why should Pete from New Zealand hold back now? But "Wasteful?" That's one I'm going...

    It is. It's called "Willow Green." Lovely color, thank you. I knew this color, but had forgotten about it.

    Wow. This is one of my all-time favorite blues. Thank you! Okay, one color is chosen. I'm using Bluette for one car. One down, thirteen to go. lol

    Is this Rosso Corsa? I like my Alfa Red, but I have always much preferred the darker, more blood reds like this one. Alfa's Rosso Corsa, BMW's "Imola Red," and the Ferrari reds of the 1950's and early 1960's.

    Black can look sinister, and I think it looks particularly good on something like a GTV/6. But black doesn't really require any "inspiration." Black is black. My own Alfetta GTV is Alfa Red, and I think it's a great, straight-up-the-middle Italian red. But my car doesn't need paint. lol I...

    Like this? I think this is Celeste. I couldn't find a Spazio Azzurro... I love this. And maybe I shouldn't have said "earthy." I should have said "natural." I love this color, thank you.

    I should have specified. None of the cars are Model T Fords. :grin2:

    Hello all! I am in the process of restoring about fifteen classic vehicles of various types. (I'm not independently wealthy. It's for my company.) All of them will be stripped to bare metal and all of them will be color changed completely, and I'm trying to assemble a list of colors to use...

    Speed comes. Don't be too worried about speed at first. Get your technique right, get your lines right, and the speed will come. It just comes naturally. Push too hard, too early, and you'll be prone to developing bad habits that will eventually hold you back. But get your technique right...

    Okay, the new shoes arrived today. I'm finishing up a cylinder head overhaul, but I'll get them mounted on the car in a a few days and post some photos of the finished product. I'm not wild about the huge "RONAL" and "TURBO" lettering, but I'm suspending judgement until I get them mounted. I...

    Wow, what an enjoyable video! Car sounds great, and that track looks fun. Technical, but without too much curbing or grandstands it kinda looks like you're just out roaring through the countryside. lol The 944 driver's comments are what they are, but to me your line looks pretty darn good...
  20. Why should i not get a GTV6?

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    Alfa values are definitely higher here, particularly for the less-valuable models like the Alfettas and such. Spiders and GTV/6's are more expensive, definitely. This thread started with a question about what seems to be a very, very good car in the "high 10's." (I'm not sure what that means...
