Wow, the ALFA looks like new
I had a '86 GTV6 (in red) for a while, it was super fast.
Bought as a non runner. Had to change the head gasket(s) and do some welding but that's nothing new
Always wondered if the V6 was just a couple of cylinders too far from the original design.....sticky rear pads ate the rear discs unfortunately..and along the same lines as you mention - I made the mistake of putting it through a car wash - it broke down 10 mins later obviously.....
I would have to disagree with you about the GTV6, I have had a few alfa's the twin cam alfa's are nice but alfa V6 is one of the best engines of all time.
Alfa made the V6 engine for it's alfa 6 is was not a very good seller for them, but when alfa put the Busso V6 into the GTV for it's 1980 revamp they made a very special car. The 1980 revamp for me is a better looking car. The GTV6 can be very expensive to look after, I have done a good bit of mileage in two GTV6 a S2 & S3 and they have always been reliable and the day I picked up my S3 GTV I drove it home 600 miles what fun that was, worth every penny.
The GTV6 is the alfetta that makes the most money now and will go up in the next few years as they are rare there was only over a 1000 RHD's sold in the UK new and most of them have rusted away now.
For me the GTV6 is a symphony of Italian engineering.
I think that the Alfetta GTV's are somewhat undervalued alfa, so buy one now before they go up in money http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yw3BG_ATvU
