I know that there are those who will think the following pictures are sacrilege but, for me, this is exactly why I love my GTA! I've owned it for just over three years and in the last twelve months I've been on holiday to France and Scotland in it, been to two festivals and camped in a field with it, done ten laps of Castle Combe, taken garden rubbish to the tip, transported four adults and their luggage. The GTA is my only car and, basically, it does everything I could ever want a car to do. And, of course, at every turn of the key, the GTA grin has been unavaoidable :D

Anyway, today was a new experience - me and a friend plus our two kayaks. So, are these the fastest kayaks in the world? :cheese:







Cheers
Aubrey

I know a mate who had a GTA on the m6 toll road and an empty 700kg ifor williams car trailor on the back, apparently it was still accelerating hard down the M6 toll road at 120mph....

Multi purpose?

Cool.
I can't exactly drive my 33 overseas, but it has been from the top to the bottom of NZ's North Island, it has camped in a field:

it has done many track days:

it has transported five people at once, helped me move flats, done this (gravel starts just over crest out of shot):

and even this:

(How's that for sacrilege? Do I win?:lol:)

Cars are supposed to be used and this proves Alfas aren't garage queens :) I like the beachside shot of the 33. No problems with sand getting stuck in the car's mechanicals?

No. The only thing I had trouble with was filming myself doing handbrake turns. I was there alone and my digital camera at the time only recorded for 15 seconds at once, so I had to start it recording and jump back into the car and floor it like I'd just robbed a bank..:D
It made pretty lame viewing though. =(
