  1. Veloce on the boat

    Alfa Giulia
    Received news on Friday that Giulia Veloce is built and on its way. Is it usually about 2-3 week to pick up? Gone for Alfa red, QV wheels, tan leather, yellow calipers and a red stop/start button from Ned at Autolusso. Hope it looks good, always had Alfas but never a brand new one so picking...
  2. Boat on spider roof.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Some time ago, I asked about tow bars for my spider so I could tow a lightweight trailer with a dinghy. Well, after much thought and the possibility of bankruptcy, just buying the bar/electrics and having it fitted, I thought again. I sold the GRP dinghy after finding out that it was quite...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all I'm looking for a boat tail spider 1967-1970 so if you are considering parting with your car please let me know. If I'm able to be picky (!) my preference is for a 1750 Veloce in red but I will also consider a 1600 duetto or a 1300 junior. I will take on a restoration project or one...

    Hi, Just wondering other that the cosmetic is there a difference between early spider and the 70's? Is early the soft top as waterproof as the later one? BR A

    After a track day my gtv has develop a weird sound, some say it could be a hidraulic lifter, some that it's a bearing. But she runs nice and that is strange. Anybody any ideas? Oil was on max all the time. YouTube - weird sound
  9. A castle and a wee boat

    Motoring Images
    These were taken at Threave Castle in Dumfries and Galloway on the Sunday of the late May Bank Holiday weekend. Stunningly beautiful setting when the weather is like this and it has the advantage of being remote but only a mile walk from the car park. There are two bird hides at the castle and...
  10. Boat Tail Spider just wont start !!

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hello All My 69 Boat Tail Spider is really difficult to start, Battery turns over ok, but without spraying a bit of petrol directly into the carbs it just wont have it. There is petrol in the float chambers etc. and it will run ok "ish" once going. When it does start there is a definate flat...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos

    Alfa GTA
    Hi guys, need some advise here... A few days ago, there was a flash flood/storm here and the road I was on turned into a river. Car finally died as I went through 2-3 foot water. 3 other Mercedes had the same fate. At one point, the car was floating as I could feel it rocking back and forth...

    The Nemesis household needs a second car next spring and the GTV is too much £££'s. It would have to be the 3.2 V6 + facelift for me which = no change from £20k. However, Mrs Nem will be the owner/operator of vehicle number 2. It doesn't need to be practical as we have the 5 door JTD coupe...
