I had the opportunity to meet Daniele when I was in Rome at the beginning of last year. He contacted me in this forum to let me know about the Club AlfaSport and the meetings they had in Rome. I joined them a few times before I moved to Milano and I can assure you that Daniele is the person that knows more about 916 GTVs that I've ever met, I thought I knew a lot about cars and Alfas in particular until I talked with them. If any of you can read Italian you should have a look at the 916 section of AlfaSport's forum, the technical level of the discussions is just amazing. When I met him, Daniele came with your blue GTV and is true that is one of the best examples out there, original styling (thats a must in Italy) and spot on mechanical mods. I read he later bought a grey V6 Turbo, maybe influenced by my grey V6? lol. I believe you when you say he almost cried when he sold you his car, he loved it. If you have time post a picture of the engine bay, I stood ten minutes admiring it when I saw it. Enjoy the car, is a true Italian bella.
