Which car should I get??

Ok guys I need some wisdom on this one...

Ive currently got a 33 (its only a 1.3 ) but I turn 25 next year and fancy buying something to mark the occasion.

I really like the look of the GTV6 and the 75, BUT buying another one means I have to get rid of the 33 (which I love) as I've no space to keep two cars dry over winter

Question is, will i regret offloading the 33 for either the 75 or the GTV6 and which of the two should i go for?

Re: Which car should I get??

I had a similar dilema a couple of years ago. My 33 was getting a bit long in the tooth, it was getting difficult to find the parts for (it was off the road for 2 months waiting for a suspension part to be delivered) and I got additional responsibility at work which increased my mileage considerably - then someone drove into the back of me

Then someone offered me a good deal on a 2.0 GTV, and I've always the GTV. However, I couldn't bear to part with my 33. So, I now use the GTV as my daily drive, and the 33 sits in the garage waiting for me to aford to rebuild its engine. The simple fact is, you can never have enough cars

In every step, I hear your sobbing
Dare I break the shade with one caress
Dare I trespass to lift the veil
To touch the lips so soft and frail

It may be that love comes once and once only, preceded by rehersal, followed by regret.

Know well that however right a man may be they always find the fallen one guilty.

All that is required for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing

Re: Which car should I get??

Are you talking about the Alfetta GTV ? If so the 2.0 is the better car as it is better balanced than the V6. Yes the V6 is slightly faster but not that much faster and it does not handle as well.

However you will probably not like the gear chage in RWD 116 series Alfa Romeos and it will not handle as well as the Alfasud. I had a 1979 Alfasud sprint originally and it was a better drive than my 1983 Alfeta GTV.

If you can find a good one, a late GTV6.

Re: Which car should I get??

i got a gtv6 and a 75 twinny,(-big-head,show-off that i am) and i think the 75 is more fun to rattle around in, but the v6 sounds bloody so much better.

So i would say get a MUCH bigger garage
