Elliott’s Alfa GTV6

Written by Ken Altes

Sweet cars, running from 1972 (as the four cylinder Alfetta GT) through 1987 with a V6.  Great handling from its rear de Dion transaxle and inboard rear brakes. More details on this car. Elliott keeps his cars meticulously clean, and provides a valuable service helping people to buy and sell cars. I got help from Elliott who suggested a car that I had never considered, a V8 BMW 540 wagon, which I bought and enjoyed.

Ferrari F40 at the Petrol Lounge in N. Austin

Awesome. It’s always a good day when you run across what many consider the greatest supercar of all time. The Ferrari F40 was the first road legal production car capable of 200 mph, via 478 hp from a twin turbo V8, weighing only about 2400 lbs. Minor mods on one example reached 226 mph at the the 2006 Bonneville Speed Week. Found it lurking at the Petrol Lounge in N. Austin.
