    So my 2000 GTV has had its first once over from Clayton and Giovanni at Alfia Auto. Because it had been very seldomly used for the best part of 10 years, and standing for the last 2, the tank was wrecked along with the carbs and everything in between. The right front and left rear brake calipers...

Am asking as am just about to fit a new fuel...

    There must be lots of knowledgeable folks out there who could help me in a decision as to whether or not to go for one of these, or even another 105 variant, Junior, 1750 etc. I currently run 3 very different but quite special classics, have just sold one and looking to replace shortly. I always...

    Hi everyone, I never owned more tools than a screwdriver and a hammer, but decided it is time to fulfil my childhood dream and get myself an Alfa 2000 GTV from 1974.

    As a teenager in 1979, I was invincible. The car was pimped, the music was loud and my right foot was on the floor. Suddenly a car pulls out in front of me.
