Photos of just GTV 105's
« on: June 14, 2010, 11:13:25 PM »
What about we create a thread for posting just photos of Australian 105's ... much like the one on alfabb.com.

Kids have named the car "Alfie" which seems a little odd when I have always thought of 105's as sexy females given the curves..

Lets see what great 105 cars we have in OZ

Cheers
JJ

Sorry for the quality but here you go:




And yes the wheels need to go....  I think I will spend some time in photoshop, now where are some shots of mini-lites?

Jeeze talk about a reaction!    :o

It's not original, yes the wheels need to go, and yes they are going.....

Anyways the intentions:
 - occasional sprint
 - occasional tarmac(too low for anything else) club event

The list of mods(completed at time of back to metal resto in 2001/2002:
  - Koni shocks
  - thicker swaybars
  - slightly lower than normal
  - battery is in the boot
  - Battery isolation switch
  - period correct(or close, ie. 70's) intermittent wiper control
  - wheel nuts all converted to RH
  - bicycle speedo for accurate KPH (and yes it does go to 160Kph... or so I am told).
  - Engineering Cert to a 2 seater with 4 point harnesses
  - Completely re-wired with new fuz box, relays etc.  So at least the electrics are pretty reliable.

The suspect list:
 - Brake booster removed, $#%@ Bonaldi unit, just run without it, and I push harder.... it's amazing what you can do with a bit of adrenaline.
 - Clutch - was sus from when the car was re-built - probably not helped by an oil leak or two
 - Tacho needle fell off - and both the tacho cable and speedo cable(found out about this today) need to be replaced(I have the tacho cable in stock - but putting it off as it is a $#%# of a job)
 - Door hinges (and the retention straps, yes the doors are marked... :()h
 - Boot seal
 - a little bit of visible rust around the step nose and in the odd other spot.

It will never be a concourse winner, but it is good fun (in the dry). A little scary in the wet, I just don't go around corners very fast in the wet.

Cheers,
AP
P.S. This is my 4th Alfa, 3 Alfetta Sedans previously, 78, 81, and 84(Motronic injected with Variable inlet timing).  They had a habit of spitting sun gears, from an over zealous application of the right foot...

Mr Bing...

nice car :)

quick question. I noticed in your pic that you have a slight dip to the car on the rear nearside. Is this just the way the pic was taken or is this actually the case.  I ask because mine does the same thing and I was wondering if this was just how they are or if the they have a common issue.

cheers
