Nice pics @SandyB. Did you keep that 1959 Giulietta?. I also have something from half century ago. I have shared it in other threads before. Me and my dad with his 1956 Alfa Romeo 1900 Super and then, me and my 2019QV. I know my dad is now smailing up there.
Great pics you sent. Thanks. I traded in my first Alfa 2-3 years later for a 1961 2000 body by Touring. I had a couple of pics from yesteryear but can not find a one. I am including a pic from a book so you will have some reference. Mine was pale yellow with the Bouroni sp? wire wheels. The model was produced for three years and although beautiful was severely underpowered. It was replaced by the 2600 (2.6 liter) in a similar body. If I find those pictures.........🤬
[/QUOTE]just drove one of these on Monday and it left an impression, a really good one, stand out to me was the quietness of the ride especially with the motor behind you. the interior is very cool, well put together, the one I drove was black with a pale grey interior. what struck me the most about the body was how wide it got going front to back reminded me a bit of a Lambo Diablo how it just goes bam.
Enjoy the New Corvette!
Wow ,glad there was an up side. I've found Alfas are very safe cars. Unfortunately I have found out the hard way that others are more likely to run into you than you are in to them. The world is full of idiots.Someone (with a broken foot in a cast) blindly turned left in front of me while I was going 30 mph. I had to turn into their tires to avoid killing their passenger in the front seat. Totaled my car, injured me and my 2 year old daughter (she had bruises and a concussion, while I took the brunt of the injuries).
Two years later, and I finally got the settlement for my injuries and ended up with my amazing Giulia. I hope to settle for my daughters injuries soon so when she turns 18, she can get herself something nice.
