Alfa Romeo Alfetta sedan

13

1981 model, daily driven hack with a hopped up 2.0l twin-cam & koni (yellow) shocks as the only major modifications. Interesting features unique to this model of Alfa (and other 116 series) include: De Dion rear axle & 50/50 weight distribution thanks to a rear mounted gearbox. The trade-off is a horribly long and vague shifter linkage.

I've got one of this car's younger, bigger brothers - a Milano Verde. Awesome handling car. I didn't know they made these Alfettas as late as 1981.

I think in the USA it was only sold until 1979. Elsewhere, however, it was available until 1985. (I'm in Australia.)

Too bad more car folks don't appreciate this Alfa as it is one of the better ones. Yes, the Alfetta GT version had a more distinctive body (later became the GTV-6), but they are far more similar than different. Again, it seems like US car folks just don't like or understand passion filled Italian cars like this.
