I fell in love with Alfas @ an Alfa club track day a few years back.
wish I still had my computer, I think I had some pictures.
This month, a few days when I walk out of my house to walk to work a GTV6 has cruised past .. Even going 30 that thing has an amazing howl

Sounds like a banshee http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

You bastard......for those of us that are trying NOT to get sucked into buying a derelict GTV6....you go and post this.


One day... one day I will be living in a cardboard box, I will be broke, I will miss the days when I used to own a reliable, dependable car but I will own one of these babies. And I will stop looking back the moment I turn the key and the engine comes to life... I'd love one in anthracite metallic over tan interior preferably with Zender 16" wheels. 2.5, 2.8 or 3.0 liter I don't care, as long as it is the 12v V6 Alfa Romeo engine.

Seriously, that sound is like a drug. I miss hearing the one that used to be in my neighborhood. I imagine myself on a lonely twisty road, either going fast and listening to the car or cruising thru the city listening to some Gianna Nannini or Vasco Rossi. Ah, la vita è bella!

Re: (andlf)

Just randomly saw these Alfa Callaway Twin Turbo pics posted in a zender thread in the MKV forum. I wonder who owns it?

I JUST looked at this same article for the first time yesterday. I drove 100 miles to pick up a huge magazine collection that included every R&T since 1972!!!!
Thank you for posting these, though....so I don't have to!

The GTV6 is one of those cars that I have loved but yet to own.

MINE got here 2 days ago

It needs some work, but pleasently suprised. A new battery solved one of the biggest problems (it did not run per the seller- I so can't wait to call an tell him thanks). :D:D:D I WIN!!!!

PS that exhaust note is so intoxicating, who needs a radio in this car???

The interior has been completly removed, cleaned up, and re-installed. Looks SOOOO much better. The seat design and feel is also one thing I remember from a test drive (in an '86) from long ago.

I finally own one so now I can say I am a REAL motorhead. Thanks Jeremy Clarkson :)
