PostSubject: People you meet.   Sun Jun 29, 2014 6:24 pm

Was going to my brother's house across town to check on work being done while he's away and was following an Alfa Romeo Alfetta GTV. I've always had a soft spot for these cars and as my fuel light had come on, I ended up following him into a servo for fuel. As I got off the bike, He came over and the first thing he said was "Is that a GRiSO?" I told him it was and he told me he'd been watching me in the rear view. We chatted for a while and he told me he had an 850T, I told him I had a few friends who I used to work with who had Guzzis, he asked where I used to work and it turned out that his wife is a friend of mine that I worked with at one time. Then he told me that a friend of his got a GRiSO 4 months ago, so I told him about this site and that he should talk to Pete and Mark about getting a new map, so we may have another member soon. Small world.

I like that. I'll think I'll borrow it permanently. From now on I'm "The Voice of Corruption".
I did tell the Alfa driver he should buy a GRiSO as well, but according to him, his wife will only let him have one toy. I'm going to have to work on him...and her since I know her.

The Alfa is not a toy - it's a utilitarian tool.
Room for a toy!!

Speaking also as an ex-Alfa owner I would say that for myself at least, my 2.0L Alfetta GTV was both a daily commuter and a toy.  Unfortunately it was also a heart breaking rust-prone money pit.   Fortunately the sickness is curable - now much happier with my 'modern' G 8V. Very Happy

I'm a alfa lover, have owned 6 different 33's both myself and the wife had one each at one stage, and 1 147GTA, the GTA was a toy, 6 second 0-100ks in a harmless looking little hatch....no alfa in the family at the moment..

Years ago there was a guy who used to own a Lamborghini Countach that he let Wheels magazine test. He later tried to make a go of producing a hybrid made from the body of an Alfetta GTV and a Lambo 12 cylinder motor. It went really well and handled well, but he couldn't get backing for it. I would've killed for one.

That's the one I was thinking of. My mistake. Would've been a great car.

Hey - I had a Montreal (not mine) in my garage for a couple of years. The owner traded it for a Ducati 916 and some cash to a guy in southern NJ. That guy sold it to someone in Oz...
