Hi All
I love my alfas and have been reading forums for quiet some time. Thought it was about time I introduced myself. I am lucky to have two GTV 6's and a 75 potenziata. I have attached some pics.
Cheers AL

Hi Alphal007
Welcome aboard and your 3 x Alfas are very fine examples of the marque. If you are from Sydney, I hope to catch up at one of our club events in the upcoming months. The forum is a great place to get advice or guidance in maintaining your vehicles or just to keep abreast of all things associated with Alpha Romeo. Two big events on the National level will occur around Easter 2018 with Alfesta being hosted by NSW, followed by Auto Italia in Canberra.
Cheers

Welcome Al,

That's a pretty tidy set. A 3L Potenziata is the missing piece in my own Alfa puzzle. 
Now:    1999 156 V6
             1981 GTV
Before: 2001 156 V6 (sadly cremated)

Thanks Joey 1
It is. Great car, having driven my GTV’s for quiet a while, I was surprised how much grunt it has and drivability with  the different gear box ratios. Have some work to do on it to make it exceptional, but overall very tidy car. Due to replace a leaking head gasket shortly and whilst there give the engine a bit of an overhaul as well, new timing belt, hoses , adjust valves etc. looking forward to the end result.
Cheers AL

The 75 Potenziata looks great. Can you post interior and engine bay pictures please.

Thanks for uploading pictures of your 75 Potenziata. This is a picture of mine also in red. Are you going to any Alfa events with this car?

Regards

Robert
