Your Aussie insults are all in vain. Instead of getting pissed off every time you suffer from such compelling verbal diarrhea, I take great consolation in the fact that every time you look in the mirror you see a bona-fide ...turd! This tells me you are 100% self-conscious, which is not the case for most people. So keep on leaking your turdlets every chance you get! Life is short and for underdeveloped lowlife like yourself its even shorter. I'm sure mankind will endure a few more months (years?) of your worldly presence, before you invariably resort to feeding maggots- and not a day too soon, if you ask me! HEHEHEHEHEHEHEH!, HALLELUJAH! Man, this was good, thanks for the heads-up on this varmint, Kevin! :lol: :mrgreen:

Ah, good to see you back Bird Brains.
I have heard people say you got a brain just like a birds nest- all full of shit and sticks. As always, just keeping the insults below the tipping point.

In reference to this topic and after much hand wringing, I have decided to build up a 75 series and just service the GT for road use. Just to what level etc is a work in progress.

See you in the boxing ring Greaser. :D

What? Build another car? Hey dude.... don't know if anyone's told you but there's other, better ways of wasting what time you got left up here! That is, provided you still have a working extension cord for your ...pinky! Ever thought of S-E-X ? You should try it sometime (preferably with the opposite sex), beats flushing brake-fluid!
If you've made up that minuscule mind of yours, quit farting around with 4cylinder shitboxes and go for a modded 3.2 in a 75, for REAL Alfa fun -ask Kevin. Unless... you wanna try blowing up (you will invariably) a 1.8T...now THAT'S a project, also very rare (non-existent?) in Oz.
Do I say good-bye or good riddance now? :twisted: :mrgreen: :wall:

MD,

Why did you sell your 2.0 SC Alfetta GTV? Was it because it didn’t have a centerfold? You’re a tough man to please.

For the curious, here is a GT racing in a local promo series for an insurance company. It goes reasonably well considering the chassis is so high you can get a midday sun tan under it.

BTW Zeefa I never sold the Cab. We still use it. It might (depending on funds) get a tweak.

..and Jim, the Cab makes more power now than the 3.2V6 with less weight so why would I bother. Gotta remember that transaxle has to stay glued together. I am limiting my power to no more than 300hp whatever it is going to be coming from. More than that will take more bucks and driving talent than I got. Spare me the wise arse comebacks on this one.

Awesome video ! Some really good racing there. Md, I would like to see your car in that field. Capraro car used to run six carbs which I'm sure nothing has changed. Great drive by him.
Must say the commentators are hilarious !

Yes I think the Cab would make a good account of itself there. A damned long way to get to the track and back ! Glad you enjoyed the clip. Here is another one at a different track and an involvement of the GT. Interesting to see the "affordable" modifications to the various models from privateers to campaign these cars. Notwithstanding, the GTV6 remains king in this group.

Yeah the GT sits high, any higher and the driver would have to wear an oxygen mask.

But still pretty damn impressive. I think he is bounded by rules to keep a minimum weight to be in his class, pretty sure if he can lose more weight he would pass the GTV6s.

Which reminds me, in November, I get to test my car at Laguna. Hopefully with JKSpeed headers :D

There are a few very fast 4Cs there, some can outgun Corvette Z06s, so even a modified 3.2 in a light transaxle car will have a tough time.
