Hey TSU, looks absolutely sweet. But you have stolen my thunder :D for that was precisely the look I had been thinking about for mine when it is eventually finished.

Just out of interest where did you locate the Carabinieri blue light from ? Oh and one other favour if I may, do you have a side on photo of your car in the livery for I would be very interested in seeing it. I have the model only to base my car's look. Dave

That is just too cool. I also understand that Supers were the vehicle of choice for the bank robbers also so they had a chance of outrunning the cops. Wonder what color they drove . . . Maybe white TI Supers?

ah but not in the Italian Job, they ran Mini Coopers and the cops had green Supers :D. Mind you on a couple of other Italian movie clips on Youtube, the crims had white Giulia Supers !!

X2 Derek. I can well imagine Mike would be as proud as punch to see his old Super looking that sweet on the track.

The build of this Super I remember reading about years ago, from its humble origins, the heavy rear shunt it took from a VW Golf which nearly wrote it off, and then its metamorphisis into the blue beast. I was always impressed at just how good that one looked.

A credit to you Manuel for bringing it back to life. The Ti should also be a lot of fun.

Hi Super 1600,

Late reply but as requested the side views. Actually it was Derek (Alfa2Go) who pinted me in the right direction and even sent me the logos. By the way your car model pix also served as inspiration when I saw it some time ago in another thread.

The blue light was fpund by my mechanic and its a very modern version and not period. I,m no longer allowed to use it unless officially escorted by the "real" Police here.

How cool! And all reversible! It's only missing the spotlight on the roof! And the cool costumes!

I own a variety of Alfas and I have come to accept the Giulia Super to be my favorite. My '69 1750 Spider Veloce has classic lines and amazing Pininfarina grace, it comes out on beautiful days and when I feel like flying on backroads enjoying the scenery. My '71 1750GTV is a bad boy and can only be tolerated for short periods at a time, it's the perfect drive the piss-out-of-it road car and nothing sounds nastier.

The '67 Super will be the one to share with more than one friend. That's the car you pick up the "compari's" and go get a cafe', sit outside and tell them everything they don't know about the car. It's my werewolf in sheep's clothing! The Super is the car that everytime you walk around it, you find the genius of it's design time and time again. It's the car that started to look like a brick and with time, it transforms itself into the most amazing study of aerodynamics. The front end suddenly looks rounder than the GTV, the sculpted/fluted sheetmetal makes Pininfarinas details on my boat-tail look tame, the rear Kamm treatment with sloping trunk sheetmetal becomes stuff of legends.....I could go on and on. If you ever happen to restore one as I have, you will also see uderneath all the materials the strenght and forward vision of the amazing chassis. A most phenominal car.

Ch Si Dici, I totally agree. There isn`t a car I own which fascinates me more in the detail. I think it was after the first wash that I began to appreciate the form and detail and how it achieves what it does. We also in our collection have a Citroen DS-a `71 DS21 and although I appreciate its lines and momentous achievements it seems highly stylised and bulbous (they are a big car) in a `40`s/`50`s type of way when examined closely. Fabulous car though, but it didn`t quite achieve aerodynamically what the Giulia did despite what appears to be comparing a brick to a sleeker shape.
Love my Giulia and what`s better most don`t even know what it is or what it achieved. Most common reaction is "that`s a bit ugly", or "-the coupes look much better, that`s ordinary".
