I concur, I spotted the GTV w/o wipers, looking at the roof line, headlight, and visible wheel; however, I could not have stated that it was a '69 let alone recognize the driver if that was the expectation.You mean the 69 GTV without wipers?
Thanks, Jim. I'll add it to my list of identifying features of various Alfa models and years. As Pat would tell me things I would add them to my list. I needed the easy things, not things that I had to dig for under the hood once I learned the basic models and the "right out there" changes like for instance the "big noticeable" difference in telling a Kamm tail from a Duetto. Nothing like starting with the basics.Well, assuming a US version car, the round front side marker would make it 1969.
Jim:Papajam said:To expand on the 1750/2000 GTV side markers a bit then;
Series 1 1750 US version - round markers, amber front, red rear
Series 1 1750 Euro version - no side markers
Series 2 1750 & 2000 US version - rectangular markers front and rear
Series 2 1750 & 2000 Euro version - round markers on front only
Hint....Alfisti are people!
You've got me on the driver of the Corvette....obviously, posted on threads I haven't read, didn't pay attention to it if I read them, or before I joined the board. I honestly can't think of one person that was into Vette's and Zagatos. The only person that I can think of that fits the description of the passenger who lived in Fullerton and later moved to Orange with his wife; if I'm not mistaken they had two little girls and he had a yellow and red double bubble. I'm not going to post his name...his initials are rb. That would have been at the old house in Fullerton, though; we moved from there in 1988, over one city and I don't think he ever came to the new house.Shame on you, Cheryl, the passenger in the corvette is an old friend of Pat's who lived in Fullerton and helped with his book on Abarths. Been to the house several times and met you.
The Corvette has been posted many times here on the BB and the driver is a well known So. Cal. Alfa/Zagato nut who needeed to experience a real '60's American sports car!
Good calls on the '69 GTV, althou everyone missed the real GTA mags on the car!
O.k., Jeff, we've figured out who the passenger is...now who is driving the Corvette? And no, I'm not offering a prize let alone a '68 Giulia Super, you'll have to take that up with 101/105 guy.So, do I win anything?? A '68 Giulia Super perhaps?
Congrats, Jeff....enjoy your new 68 Super....OK, Jeff. You found us!
Now about the '68 Super.......
would you like it in 4x6 or wallet size?
Randy Bent (passenger) owns the 'vette
