And away she goes, collected yesterday morning by a nice chap from Cornwall who I think might give her a new lease of life. Last picture of the old girl, I hope I don’t regret selling



It’s a successor is hiding in the background...

I still feel the pain of selling mine and it's been 6 years. I even remember commenting on yours on this thread!

I’ve probably said it before but silver with dark alloys is a bloomin’ fantastic colour for these. Mind you they look fantastic in any colour!

Here pics of my ‘78 Alfetta GTV.
Unfortunately I hardly use it as it’s too good and worry about damage.
For purist the I do have original Momo Vega wheels with the car. I just prefer these (No haters please).

That looks absolutely lovely. I had a 1981 version - must have been one of the last chrome bumper ones to come out of the factory. I miss that car hugely.

One was offered to me from a PHer a couple of years back - at a good price too - I didn't quite have the money but considering what they're getting worth now, I'll probably never catch up.

I think the stainless steel bumpers are much prettier. I’ll never sell it.
They are still cheap compared to 105 Bertone models.

Here’s my July 2010 Brera 1750 TBI in Touring Grey. It has 19’’ TI alloys and the Alfa Accessories Carbon dash, console and steering wheel trim otherwise standard. I’ve owned this car 2 years today.

When the chance came up to buy this high miler for £4500 I couldn’t resist it as low mile examples were more than double that and out of my price range for a second car. It was bought at 126,500 miles. I’ve added 10,000 to that.

All other Brera TBI’s I’ve seen are still under 100k. Because there car was ‘cheap’ and because of the miles I’ve not been afraid to use it. She’s a keeper too.

After 37 years of car ownership and over 70 cars owned from very nice to absolute nails, I've finally graduated to proper 'petrolhead,' so they say. I've had Lotus, TVRs and Porsche amongst many other but my first Alfa Romeo is a GT Cloverleaf. smile



A few cosmetic things to do like a new front badge and a proper deep clean of the wheel arch areas and red (but grimey) calipers; I've already sorted out the gooey rubberised finish on the door control panel thanks to youtube tips.
