Truly a genius for all time
will definitely keep my eye out for you!
Can confirm. I don’t even own one, but I lurk on AlfaBB because of my Lancia project. When I posted years ago that I was kind of sort of thinking about a GTV-6 or Milano, a guy insisted on driving over 200 miles just to let me drive his and spread the gospel. Amazing community of lunatics. Someday I’ll have one.
Wow. Bizarre similarity. Excellent build progress. You in IA? I’ll stop by next time through
Yeah! So many stupid trips along that road. Nice Abarth :)
Is that Skyline drive I see in the hero picture? If so, it’s one of the most bizarre roads of all time. But the coolest. Canon City, CO about 45 minutes from my house. I take it whenever I’m going East on 50 without fail. Also, nice garage. :)
I feel like Graham and I are two souls, sharing the same plane of existence. I didn’t have the energy to write about it as much, but I was doing largely the exact same process, on the exact same car, at virtually the exact same time, in the exact same Midwest conditions!
Vouching for the inherent goodness of the Alfa community.
I’m hoping Graham is part of AROC Detroit! Back 12+ years ago when I left Michigan, they ran some very nice autox at WCCC in Ypsi. And some of the guys had some very pretty 105/115 GTVs and GT Jrs.
Congrats to him for enduring a terrible event like that and getting right back to it. This Alfa looks beautiful, and the quality of his work looks excellent as well. The only flaw I see is that his “0170" cap is on upside-down.
Many years ago, the shop I work at did an engine swap where we stuffed the 24v 3.0 engine out of a 164 QV into a GTV6. I have long wanted to do a similar swap with a Milano. Love these cars so much, and glad to see one being kept alive.
If I’m putting it on a boat it’s going straight to Finland
This is the case with most rally events and the cause for a “Super Special” stage at many. Even at STPR, an ARA event, there is a lot of planning, driving, and walking that goes on. Honestly, you can’t really get it down until you have gone to the same event multiple times. At that point you will know which stages…
Enjoy the rally, there are not many Americans here in the service park but there are a few of us working in WRC.
I’ve been lucky enough to have attended a number of WRC rallies (Acropolis, Deutschland, Finland, and Mexico). You should be able to fit in 2 stages and a service park/Super Special Stage visit per day if you want to cram as much action in as possible. The key is to bounce from the stage as soon as the top drivers…
I hope you’re not implying the U.S./North America rallies don’t have corners. Our main roads may be straight as an arrow, but our rally stages can rival anything in Europe for corners.
My neighbor just told me “Oh yeah, my daddy used to drink with Aretha over on 7 Mile.” She was a class act and a Detroit girl until the end. Luckily those two things aren’t mutually exclusive. And thank you very much, I’m feeling a lot better!
Its a GT86 CS-R3, 3 of them are entered into the rally
As the customer, the pressure exerted on you by your bosses is not my problem. If you don’t want to special order a car for me, that’s fine. I’ll take my business to a dealer who is willing to take my money.
