Hi Guys!

Not new but as everyone, new to this forum. Anyway, a little introduction...

Live in Sweden, contractor working the massive automotive market in west Sweden. hehe...

At the moment I own 1½ Alfas, A GTV (Alfetta) 2000 -77 and a stripped 75 body.

The GTV...
Bought it as it is now, well I added the seat and tweaked the steering wheel position plus added some lenght to the gear lever to get a good driving position.
Can't really take credit for the build but it is top-notch, all the good stuff. The only thing missing is a matching heart, don't get me wrong the engine is very strong... for a standard engine.

The 75 Body is in hibernation, future project. (now SOLD)


The 75 T (SOLD) was the streetcar. Never used it so I sold it.

Checking the portmatching and trying the new yellow cam cover screws. Do they look ok? I think so.
Ports in the intake needs a bit more work though.

VERY narrow, twisty road up there and just a couple of hundred meters from my apartment. I need to go more often.

Looks nice. Is it close to the sea? Looks like a gantry crane in the background. Your place is a port city isn't it?

Superb Cars Mats!
Where's the lower lip on the Evo?
Are those the rims it came out with as the Evo's I have seen had different rims?
Please post a under the hood pic and one of the instrument panel if you have one ?

Well, he likes to use the car so the lip is KIA... ;)

The rims are custom painted Momos or something, nothing special. The original Evo rims are safely tucked away.

Something special you wanna see on the instrument panel?

Mats please explain what the instrument panel has ie orange line , red line on the tacho (Tspark 5800/6200)I see he has added a boost gauge did it come with an Alfa one ?
The colour the instruments are orange?In Oz we got white which I think looks cooler than red/orange.(What was Alfa they trying to give a BMW feel ):roll:
What does the speedo read to in the Evo ?My TSpark and Potenziata read to 260 kp/h which I love but always thought was overkill in my Tspark! left over parts bin from the 3 litre I'm thinking!
Mats your 75 is beautiful have you considered putting the boot/trunk spoiler on from a Tspark or 3.0 ?
