Ever Thought Of Owning A Classic Car?

Recommended Posts

:cool::thumbs:

 

The parents of the friend who got me into Alfas when we kids had his 'n hers Alfas - a 75 V6 for him, a Sprint :Four Leaf Clover: for her (both red and with bodykits). In the 75 we hit a pheasant on the way back from Castle Combe race circuit and it got wedged in the grille. So we stopped to rip it (literally) it out, carried on driving home, then noticed a faint whiff of smoke coming through the vents. Then flames out of the bonnet :Shocked: - somehow an electrical fire had started as the result of the pheasant strike. As we were in the middle of nowhere with no fire extinguisher the 75 burnt to the ground. :( Sadly, the Sprint meant a similarly grizzly ending a few months later after it was wrapped a lampost. :bluecry:

I was going to ask if that was the 3.5 75. The boot badge kinda gives it away really :LOL:

At least that knows that it should be priced accordingly

 

£300k for an F40?

There are lots that like, but if I had to choose one, it's gotta be a Miura!

 

A man after my own heart... Have been in love with this sexy Italian lady since the age of about five :D

Yeah, but that 156 has serpent stickers under the side repeaters. Doubles the value, that does. :LOL:

as soon as people knew i would be going out in it they would clear the streets and get their children, pets etc indoors and bolt down the windows and doors :cool: id never ever get lost either because i could just follow the tyre marks back to where i started
