Picked up a GTV this afternoon.

I now have my first Alfa , a 1996 GTV TS which needs an MoT, but looks to be in reasonable nick.

I had always been mistrustful of ALFAs, Fiats, etc, but I bought my daughter a 1.8 Stilo 3 years ago which seems to have a single spark Alfa type engine, and its been superb. Whether this GTV is as good remains to be seen.

It had a full service history until 2004 with loads of cash spent on it and other than a few minor points like the drivers seat bolster, the weather strip down the body where the door closes being missing, and the (Alfa) radio on/off switch missing, it runs quite well.

I'll give it a going over during the week (if the rain holds off) to see what's hidden underneath.

Only obvious issue is that it doesn't 'howl' like I was expecting, but its had a replacement exhaust which has no doubt altered the note.
