What kind of colour is that ????

Hia All,

I guess now that I now own an Alfa (Spanking shiny metallic black GTV facelift)..... It's probably only natural that you notice other Alfa's during everyday driving........

Now I know there's been some debate on here about the best colour for an Alfa.........

.... But what is the worst colour thay've come up with ????

Personally ......... I think that silver cars (of whatever make) always look dirty, and could do with some Autoglym ........... But the worst colour ??? .......... Yesterday I saw a GTV in a sort of cross between a "Mustard Yellow and Chinese Chippy Curry Sauce" colour........ What kind of colour is that ???? for an Italian Sports car............???

Maybe the guy who chooses the colours in the factory used to work up at British Leyland around the time they were painting Austin Allegro's and MG's .......... Brown & Beige ?????

Cheers to All
Peter

Re: What kind of colour is that ????

Can't beat virginal white, inside and out. Just look at the modern bathroom suites and soforth? And NO, ours is,-- You guessed it, yellow! Honestly, a ninety fiver' built home when yellow was in, now it's all white, stainless steel and chrome stuff, pass the scalpel fashion. By a side slide, the Primrose Yellow 'E's, looked great, but I still preferred the Carmen Red, Signal Red, and the Old English White looked smart too. The metallics looked naff, on the 'E', especially on the coupes. Shape is the thing for a colour,IMB.:

Barce is, was, a most salubrious place near Benghazi, where uniforms matched the sand, apart from the dark sweaty patches that had a tendency to appear.: Loved that Zoey

Depends how itís used.

Anyways, I think the yellow looks fetching on the spider, gives in character and makes it quite unique
