I love Alfas. I know the 33 Stradale is one of the Uber Alfas but for me, a TZ is the deal.

A good friend and very accomplished driver has raced this TZ extensively as he in in charge of, and is the driver for Larry Aurianna鈥檚 historically significant collection (which also includes a 33/2 Stradale). Last year he drove the 1.5L v12 Ferrari to the top of the podium at the Monte Carlo historics race.


For Alfas in my economic sphere I guess I would love a Montreal, not the best handling car but is really unique. The Italian v8 sounds out of this world and the gauge panel is very cool. I鈥檒l stick with my Milano Automatic, GTV6, 鈥74 Spider (in day-glow yellow) and the little beast 4C for now.

I could do a F355! And I like this Mustang, a K-code 鈥65 with a pony interior, gauge pack and factory AC that I saw last summer, dirty but totally original and straight.

I had a '65 Fastback Mustang (C or A code...can't remember....2 barrel carb) with a 302 in place of the 289 and a 3 speed. I dropped the front via the Shelby mod (drill 2 holes and relocate the A arms lower) and put fiberglass (no carbon fiber back in '89) leaf springs in the back. It handled great and had decent (guessing 7.5 sec 0-60) acceleration for the time. The appearance and interior of that car remain as one of my all time favorites. I wish I still had it...no power steering, drum brakes, and all. I'd skip the K code if I was looking for one now, and do a restomod with a late model 5.0 and 6 spd.

...and the Montreal is incredible but I've never seen one in real life.

no love for the TZ? LOL

I see Montreals pretty regularly in the shop I use. The small bore DOHC v8 sound is mesmerizing. They pop up every now and again on BaT and other venues. I like the orange and lime green ones the best. Until a few years ago a nice Montreal was relatively inexpensive.

Some day I鈥檇 like to build a Scout 800. Even though no AC in FL sucks I鈥檇 still enjoy an Ariel Nomad. Curious to see if Toyota brings back the MR2 as well. I鈥檓 all out of garage and driveway space though so before any more dreams come true I guess I need to setup a GoFundMe for a bigger place for my toys. Haha

I replaced my 4c with 2016 Viper. Had several life changing experiences within first day of owning it. Sadly after several weeks I stuffed it into a barrier and was totaled. This is the replacement I'm picking up tomorrow.

Love my 99 gts as well but one day I would love a Ford GT, 458, 69 Fastback, Morgan Aero, and get 4c again as a dedicated track car.

My 718 Boxster S with Soul Performance exhaust and APR 93 octane tune is still with me and pretty easy to love. Had an ND2 Miata which is gone now so the Boxster fills the convertible slot and I loved that too, but definitely fell out of love eventually due to lack of power.

I would like to love a C8 Z06 or 911 Cabriolet S, but allocations without ADM are tough to come by, and I am too focused on other things now to hunt.

Yeah I love that, but then I like the look of a gtv6, angles and creases. I have always liked the look of the gt4 more than the GTS.
I agree about the Alfa Romeo GTV6, I'm driving mine every day, there's a bit of maintenance but the ride is only surpassed by the 4C. The 308GT4 is a different bird , a 3.0 litre v8 ,mid engine , really nice interior and dash and that small displacement V8 really screams
