I posted a picture of my most recent purchase on its way home on a flat deck and DOM! commented that it brought back memories for him.
And I bet the same applies to all of us when we see one that we can identify with, on the hook.

Good memories or bad!

Please share your pictures and stories.
Lord knows I have had a few.

Great shots! All I have are the memories, no pictures of it in transit. Following it and being so nervous that it was going to fall off the truck.

Right after taking delivery of my '86 GTV6, and getting it back from the shop after refurbishment... drove 100mi perfectly, then wouldn't start the next day. Yay for old fuel systems.

Here are a couple....

One of a Alfa 159 Polizia car in Italy, on a flat top, we were just on a tour bus driving past so don't know the story.

The other is of my 1750 Berlina when it was loaded in Sydney to be delivered down to me in Melbourne.

Cheers,

Paul.

Didn't need a tow for our GTV6 - I bought it in Texas and drove it home to North Carolina. The only issue was a loose intake air duct.

Our Spider was purchased as a project. I trailered it home from Massachusetts.

My MGA got a could of tows. Once when I ran out of gas just after the checkered flag. And another time when the crankshaft decided it didn't want to play anymore.

My dearly departed, in 2013 as it started it's journey from one side of Australia to the other, to its new owner. Have regretted selling it ever since!

Hi Eric,

Maybe I’ll start another thread in pictures. I personally don’t go to that one too often so I would likely miss something like that. I assume others would too.

Hi all!

I started a similar thread in the GTV6 area but it would be great to see and hear from all Alfisti.

It happens to all of us. Getting towed. We all have tales and usually pictures of our good times and not so good times when we are on the hook.

I think the shared communal suffering could provide some much needed healing in these tough times. I mean winter of course, when there is little driving to be done!

Please share your pictures and stories about being “on the hook”.

I’ll start with my most recent experience. This one a good one. A new to me 1984 GTV6 on its way home.
