Alfa GTV Cup

GTV Cup 151

Hi everyone, I don't post very often on here but thought you might like to know that I am the new owner of CUP 151 as I've noticed that it is currently unknown on the cup list.

In terms of previous history, the car has spent the last 6 years in Walsall and has covered 55k miles. The previous owner has made a number of modifications including the popular GTA lightened flywheel and clutch, an Alfaholics SS exhaust and an Autodelta carbon air intake and filter.

My plans are to use it as often as I can and not just hide it away in the garage and I hope for many years of driving with a stupid grin on my face

Anyway, the car's new home is Worcestershire and I've included a few pictures.

Dave

Saw two spiders this evening on the Bristol ring road between Longwell Green and
Emersons Green. One was black, the other was silver, I was in ours and we all had
the hoods down

GTV V6

Red 2.0 at Bank Hall car show, Bretherton on Sunday. I was told 'only space for one more car' when me and the FIL were looking to put my GTV and his mini in the show so out of fairness we both declined then 10 mins later you and about 3 other cars drove in!

Also silver 2.0 spider on the Liverpool Road (A565) heading out of Southport, see it most mornings. Have just moved up to North West from London so still finding my feet as far as directions etc. go

I saw a silver spider top down this evening at Astley. Gave him a big wave..... nothing.
Some of them might as well drive Mazdas.

Exchanged waves with a black TS (I think) on A50 as I came out of Holmes Chapel headed north towards Mangos - but of course I wasn't going there.
