I have loaded up this GTV 2.5 to bring to the UK . It’s such good car and far more “ relaxed “ and economical to drive for work in the UK than the carb GTV . Having said that I prefer not to take carb GTV 3.0 to work.
Some pics of the car at dry docks before it goes off to Felixstowe. I always drive the car into the container and check the tying down but these guys are doing it really well over last few years so did not have to stay until end of packaging. You do hear of nightmare stories of cars coming loose .
British International Removals are the company I use and have now down four GTV6’s for me. If anyone is looking for the contact person there they can PM me or speak to Ben direct :)

I have my old favourite patina'd (or is it patinae ?) wall near my car storage where I like to take pictures of my cars for the insurance updates. I have finally got the three together but no sooner had I done this I had to sell the 2.5. Maybe one day I can buy it back.
Here the three which include 3.7 24v, 3.0 12v and the 2.5 12v .
Each car is unique to the other and very different driving experiences !

To true , even though I wanted to keep the carb car at factory spec I might drop it 15mm in the nose . I know it's not much but roads are not great where I am . I even bent the strut brace bar on the Mito a few weaks near my place . However the race car is much lower but it just that every one is used to seen 17" wheels on these with a 620mm overall diameter. These are the original 15" and with tyres it's 585mm . That's a big difference with out even lowering the car.
Can see the race car next to carb carbi and that's 50 mm difference on same tyre circumference with just drop in suspension.
So 10 splines on the torsion bars it will be ! Thanks you just given me another summer job :D

We have just entered into lockdown again so I doubt anymore outings this year. I have grouped together some pics from the last few months. The highlight has definitely been been doing a few tarckdays with a relatively standard twins park 75. The car has been prepared by Wayne from EMC and all I had to do is make and apply some stickers :) The stickers were made in SA with all the UV resiIstant layers so I doubt it will fade here. The 75 just needs bigger brakes at this stage !
We were lucky to have an Alfa Club day at Stoneley House . Sad how the other half live but atleast we could put our cars on the lawns. Some good 75 pics including Steves wide body IMSA style.
