  2. Searching for Dad's dark blue '74 GTV in Connecticut

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    My father had a 1974 GTV in dark blue. He raced it at Lime Rock with the Aston Martin club for a while, then "sold it to a guy in Norwalk." This was all in the 80s. I'm hoping to get a line on it in the hopes of perhaps bringing it back into the flock. We were living at 43 Glenville Rd in...

    General Motoring Discussion
    Upon their UK return last year, my folks bought a MK5 Golf 1.6 FSI manual. It did its job for the time it took them to make a new home here and they clocked up 10k in it.

    General Motoring Discussion

    Clocking my four new Continental tyres, my dad drew deep on his cigarette this cold morning, and took in the condition of my car. He spotted the dent in the wing (caused when a wheelie bin hit it), the dent in the lower rear valence (caused when I reversed into a traffic cone), and the four...

  20. MiTo and my dad.

    Alfa MiTo
    I'm a happy Guilietta owner. Had a few MiTo demos and courtesy cars, loved them. My dad is a 65+. He likes my G. I admire the way he gets 60mpg out of his Skoda. He is a fully police trained driver, and I would still struggle to stay with him on a winding road. He has been building cars from...
