We only saw Alfa Romeo 75 s in magazine pics. I remember the Veloce ad.
At an early age my attention was drawn to Alfa Romeo s.
We stayed in Gordons Bay. (False Bay),Helderberg Basin,Cape Town.
I was in Grade 6. The Mayor of Gordons Bay had a Beige Giulietta 116.
I Loved the shape & Badge.
My first Alfa Romeo,I owned was a 1983 Giulietta 1.8 Lusso Executive.
That was still a metal Bumper Giulietta,as we know it.
I joined the Cape Alfa Romeo Club.
Buying & Selling my Personal Giulietta s in order to upgrade from time to time,I worked my way up to a 1983 GTV 6 (White).
I Still own a 1984 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Gold Clover. What next ?
New Alfa Romeo s in S.A. was not available ! The Alfa Romeo 75 we never saw.
Some of my Alfa Romeo friends some how got hold of British Car magazines.
Looking at the Alfa Romeo 75 Veloce ad and dreaming about seeing a Alfa Romeo 75 in Real Life was only a dream.
