The 6 Cylinder search

Is over!

Now do I go down and pick it up (it's over 500 miles away) or do I get some of our Transport guys to deliver it to me? Decisions!

Pick it up, fly there if you can or get a mate to drive you, road trips are good fun

You tease, what is it?

I got my GTA from Buzz Alfa in Kent, flew to Gatwick then a taxi and drove it home - only took about 8 hours to drive back to Fife.

I think ours came from 900 miles away, as it was a little Cornish Alfa........Nobody was confident enough (or had the time!) to go the whole way, so we compromised 70 / 30 - they had the "70" bit, however, so once we took delivery we were reasonably certain we'd get home!

Cool!! - look forward to hearing/seeing whatever it is ( is it an older classic?) It's surely worth a drive back!

We do of course have the weather of the French riviera for about 2 hours in June up here in the northeast of scotland

did you have to go 500 miles away to make sure Mirrin and Mymito didnt buy it?

I didn't have a clue which you'd go for, but I have to say that is a very good choice for a rare fun weekend car!
Hope to see it soon.

Good choice! Even though it's only a twinny version, I love my GTV.

Nice one Graham. I thought you'd be going for a GT but a GTV makes perfect sense as a 2nd car. Better start saving for the petrol for the big run then.
