My ultimate dream alfa is the Alfaholics GTV. Luckily one came available here in Canada. The previous owner spent well over $60K in parts. Orignal single stage oil based paint was resprayed 10 years ago. Best of all, it's a manual.

She’s a beauty. Will you get first dibs if it goes up for sale or be caught in the middle of a bidding war? I can see many an Alfista wanting to get behind the wheel of that. Or is it yours now? If so, great job in getting hold of it.

It's all mine. Just waiting for the enclosed transporter to be full. In this market, it might take a while.

Anticipation must make you drunk, please share videos! That 240hp nat asp 2.3 should've been what the 4c had as base, mito "QV" manual, and our current spec+ (plus phase 2 tune, so to speak) with some capable suspension design (ah if only VW owned Alfa...) As the QV.
I'd have the base, and save up for one of these GTV's as my "sport utility" = driving nirvana.
Congratulations!

Nice!
Congrats.

Not sure where it is coming from, but I can give these guys a thumbs up. They brought my white car from Vancouver to London. Just have to be patient as they need to fill a load (and as you say, in this market, there will not be as much call for that).

Would like to see interior pics if you have any.

I don't know how many of you follow Bring A Trailer (online car auction site for enthusiasts cars) but they did record business in April and the auction results in May suggest another very strong month. So cars are selling and at high prices.

For instance, $138k (w/commish) for a 1,900 mile 04 NSX

I think I may have seen that car when the previous owner drove down to Detroit Michigan for some work. There are a couple of the ALFAholics cars locally. One is owned by Ralph Giles. His is amazing! It has the Webers converted to electronic fuel injection. There is a shop here that specializes in the conversions to GTAm spec with carbon fiber drive shaft, fuel injection, flares, etc.

Congrats on the car. Tip...look into either a panhard assembly or sliding block assembly to keep the rear differential/axle from moving side to side. Makes a huge difference...I had that on my 1970 ALFA Duetto.

Any updates when it shows up in your garage? Looking for more pictures and details when it does.
