More bent than usual..
« on: July 20, 2011, 08:24:11 PM »
What's happened to these girls? Why dont we see more of them on the track? More character than you'll find in a Shakespear play ! :)

Admittedly you need to be a bit more bent than your regular 105 fan but hey, these are great machines!

Hey we all know, don't we that 'real" Alfisti drive sedans  ;D  Cool, always love to see a Berlina or Super in action, or for that matter a '75 etc.

I used to use my 2L Berlina as my club track car, I had so much fun in it, RIP old girl.

Those sedans are a bit too close to the ground for my liking.

Hahaa Paul,

I thought it was about time I came out of the closet and declared my love for 105 sedans. Such an under rated bunch and so here's hoping there are some tucked away photos of these girls in their glory..


Post'em if you got'em.

Here's some joolies wall to wall.. :) :)

Love the 105 sedans especially the Berlina's as they're a bit of an orphan. Would love to drop a TS donk in one
This ones from Sweden with a TS conversion and is a bit of a launcher.

Way to go Pep, ;D. You too mate need a Berl or Joolie in the Garage to keep your GTV company.  Good to see you have come out MD. 

There are some pretty nice Berls on the BB on a thread there, including this seriously wicked lowered, flared Navy Blue racing one.  I remember this very nicely prepared Classic Rally 2L red one in the UK that really looked awesome and gave me the idea to do something similar with mine at the time.  Ran out of funds and had to sell it in the end.

There are a number of pretty nice Berls and Joolies down here in Tassie.  Must take some snaparamas of them for you to see.

Looking forward to some of those photos David.

Peppy le 105, you always come up with the goods mate. That Berlina stance with the nose up and bum saggin' brings it all back. :)

I suppose it's horses for courses but the driving position in the sedan compared to the one in the coupe is like night and day. Not saying one is good and the other bad, I am just saying how different they are. My ergonomic preference being the sedan.

Hahaa Derek I see you are bent above the shoulders as well.

You do know that somewhere high in the Hymalayas people are erecting wind chimes as we speak to save you ??  ;D

I think pep105 should have one of these David..

MD, I want that 1750 Berlina.  How cool would that be, it looks so sweet and yet agressive.  I could have so much fun in that. Pep will have to find his own  ;D ;D

I know this is a racing topic but this is what they look like before they go racing.. :) Hope that's ok?

Note the rear exhaust pipe angularity. It is how they should be for the street car (the Joolie too).

Ohh sh*t yeah MD - thats it mate

Arse down nose up is a 105 given unless you spend megga in changing
the suspension geometry as you know. But I love the stance especially the sedans.

MD & Davo you got any pics of your old Berlina's ? If so please post.    

My first experience with a Berlina was at uni, there was a hot bird who drove one, a family owned since new auto, although her beauty was inversionally porportional to how annoying she was, so it never went anywhere - got to drive the Berlina though and sample the LSD  :)

Great thread MD

Dave ill take the red one

Keep the pictures coming all
