My name is James, i live near Brighton in Adelaide. I am 15 and i will be getting my Ls in February, i have always loved cars and for the past year i have been competing at the Southern Districts Car Club in a $1300 corona. My fathers first car was a Fiat BC 124 Sport and my mothers first car was a Fiat Bambino. They then went through several suds and 33s as well as a white '85 GTV6 and two 75s, a 2.5 V6 manual and a TS manual as well as two Lancia BETA Coupes.
Currently my father owns a 1998 Alfa Romeo GTV V6 3.0 24v in Verde Sargassi Metallic with straight through centre exhaust modification.
I own a 1990 Alfa Romeo 75 TS in ALFA ROSSO RED. I have had it for 2 weeks so far. It has a BMC Airfilter, sports suspension that has lowered the car by 3cm and a sports rear muffler.
Although i won't be able to drive it LEGALLY i can still drive the 5spd manual
. During the time were i cannot drive it plan to restore it visually and improve it mechanically.
I will post photos of the GTV V6 and 75 TS soon!
I have been too busy improving my 75. I have bought a second hand replacement drivers seat because the bolsters have collapsed in the original seat.
The car has some modifications from the previous owner...
> BMC Conical Airfilter
> MEGA FLOW 2" rear exhaust box
> Sports springs (i suspect that a coil has been cut off the springs)
> Woodgrain wheel
> $130 MOMO gearknob!
> The car has never been washed with water, the owner only ever used a waterless carwash in an aerosol can. Paint is 80% good
>For free i got a new battery, carcover, seatcover, original wheel and gearknob.
I plan to...
> Paint the bumpers all red
> Re-paint the exterior plastic trim in a satin grey like original.
> New 16" wheels (if possible 215 tyres)
> straight rear exhaust, CSC centre piece
> KONI Yellows
> Poly bushes
> New stereo face with AUX input (mp3)
> Replacement red boot reflector
Sorry for the lengthy post!!
