Well, at least I didn't take off for a couple days: http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/showthread.php?t=49733
Noble effort, Steve!
It took me a little while to convince myself that a Verde is some version of a 75 and they are not green in colour. The 75 was definitely the 75 in NZ, without other names (Milano another US name?)

I wouldn't especially like to be under the Rosso, erm, Verde on that white-scaffolding 'thing' - angle girders are only strong when they're straight, in my experience!

That transaxle is a piece of art.
I'm sure Mary is absolutely thrilled at the new arrivals to your home. ;)

Cheers,
-Alex

Yes, the 75 by any other name is a Milano with Silver, Gold, Platinum and Verde Editions. Verde being 3.0L sport model whereas rest were 2.5L.

That was my first thought too - that thing looked a tad scary to be trusting one's life to!:eek:

I agree. I pulled one out of a junkyard Verde a couple years back, with the sole intention of flipping it for a few dollars. Once I got it home and cleaned it up, I didn't want to part with it - stuck a high price on it and indicated "pick up only". Eventually however, I got over it - something about a 150 lb chunk of metal in the middle of the garage caused me to fall out of love. :D
