Welcome to the BB Marisa. It is great to see another young female Alfa enthusiast. My daughter is nearly 22 and her daily drive is a 1981 GTV 2.0. She loves it and gets lots of comments from people about how cool it is. She is also a member of AROCA. The clubs need young people like you. Post some pics of your cars.

Hi Marisa, great to see another younger Aussie Alfista. Gotta keep the passion going for these great cars. I'd like to put myself in this younger group too, I'm only mid 30's! My little bro is early 20's and I think I've infected him with the Alfa virus. He recently bought a lovely 79 GTV. Should be registered in the next couple of days in Sydney. He plans on driving down to Melbourne in it in a few weeks. I hope he sees many classics driving around down there!

Hey, great shot of my car thanks :)

I think the alfabb members should coordinate better when auto italia comes round next year.

Thanks for the welcome!
Yes you don't see many young ladies driving old alfas around :cool:
When i got my P's i was in year 12 and even some of the teachers would check out the Sprint! GTV's are awesome! I am guessing your daughter inherited the Alfa bug from you? My dad influenced me from a young age, the Sprint has been in our family for almost 14 years now, so i sort of grew up with that car.

:D

Hi there!

I tried to infect my younger sister with the Alfa virus but it hasn't worked :(
My older brother has a 33 too though, the 1984 single carb version. When i got my 33 1.7 IE he wanted to swap and see if i would notice!

There are quite a few classic Alfas in Melbourne :)

Yes I guess she did inherit the Alfa bug from me. When she first got her Ps she bought a nice manual Volvo 440 which was easy to drive for a beginner, but after a bit more than a year she decided she wanted a GTV. We looked around for a while and ended up getting one from a guy in Melbourne. It is in excellent condition with custom leather and velour interior and a rebuilt engine with Pace cams and loud exhaust. It is pretty zippy. She talks to it in Italian in which she is fluent. My 18 year old son drives the red 75 3 litre V6, my wife drives the 164 and my daily driver is a 75 Potenziata. We are all members of AROCA. Some of the local kids call our house "The Alfa house".

My first car was supposed to be a sprint. I saw an ad and called the guy who was a small time dodgey dealer. He offered to pick me up and did so in a nice looking 82 sud. After ripping over the gladesville bridge at unholy speeds in the sud I wanted that little 4 door rocket. The rest is history.
