Alfa 75 3.0 v6

New owner


I registered a week ago and thought it was about time I introduced myself. It's been a long time away from Alfas...

Age 17 to 23 I had (or used via my parents):

Alfasud x3 including a South African model (I think), one of only 3 in the country
Alfa 33 1.5 and 1.716v
Alfasud sprint with HB suspension and engine work (my second favourite car ever)

We were regular visitors to AROC events and after 15 years my dad has only just purchased a vehicle that isn't an Alfa

Since the Alfas, I tried to keep it Italian (Punto and Fiat Coupe 20VT ). Recently I've had a Honda S2000 and a Clio 182. The Clio was intended as a stopgap car but I loved it and it gave me the trackday bug I did around 7 trackdays in the car and I came to realise I needed a dedicated track car.

So I've gone back to another Fiat Coupe 20VT and I've also purchased a 75 3.0V6 . The V6 is simply wonderful . The car needs a few things doing to it but it's a good basis for the track with no rust to mention It's already got C&B cams, HB suspension & poly bushes. The brakes need a little work though I'm sorry if there are any Alfisti who don't like the idea of these cars being used as track cars but at least it'll be back on the road (and track) and being used as Alfa intended

So I'll be asking lots of questions and I'm sure there'll be a few problems along the way.
