    Ownership Verified: gt1750's Alfa 156 V6

    So here comes (finally!) the thread for the Alfa 156 I bought almost two months ago. I was searching for a second car since last summer, criteria were: slightly sporty feel, 5 or more cylinders, 4 useable seats, must appeal to my wife, price 5-6k Euro tops. Alfas were obviously high on the list...

    Seeing (mostly) red: Museo Storico Alfa Romeo

    As a part of our extended weekend holiday at Lake Como, we took a trip to Arese to the Museum of Alfa Romeo :) The building itself and the surroundings look pretty disappointing IMHO, so I didn't even bother trying to take a pic of my own Alfa there as I originally intended :( Inside is...

    Ciao Italia - Italian Car Event at Oldtimerfabrik Neu-Ulm

    What to do on a sunny Sunday with your family and your wife's parents? Take them to a classic car event of course! :D We've actually managed to do two events that day, but the second one was rather small and contained mostly cars that we've already seen before/. So no photos from that one...

    Ownership Verified: gt1750's 1750 [Alfa 159 SW TI Edition]

    So this is the car I got from a certain VW dealer in Munich after cancelling the Seat Leon ST FR order. I've always wanted a 159 and when this one popped up (with no photos - dealer sent me those after request), i knew I have to have it. She's an Alfa Romeo 159 1750 TBi TI, built in March...

    Oldtimertreffen Senden - June 21st 2015

    I stumbled upon some posters promoting a nearby event and decided to go there to see what interesting things do the locals drive. It resulted in a nice Sunday family time in the company of nice motors, good food and rather crappy German music performed by a single elderly guy. There was a...

    Game: LEGO Worlds

    Pretty much out of nowhere, here comes somewhat-Minecraft-like game that looks like a ton of fun :) It is not an exact clone of MC, there seems to be no survival or mining, however you can do a lot of cool stuff anyway and destroy/modify/ride just about anything you see. You can already build a...

    Unveiled: Carozzeria Touring Berlinetta Lusso

    The prettiest Ferrari of recent times that is actually not a Ferrari (note the lack of prancing horses). Classy, understated, with carefully weighed proportions and beautifully sculpted surfaces, all painted in a lovely shade of blue. I am genuinely in love. One that is destined to be platonic...

    Unveiled: Possibly The Fugliest Car Of Recent Times - Toyota FCV

    Some of you might remember the Toyota FCV Concept from the last year's Tokyo Motor Show. I certainly do, even though I have been trying intesively to forget about it - I think it was one of the worst designs ever presented by a car manufacturer. It had bad proportions, pointless graphics an...

    LCW 2014 - US Cars Meet at Kemp Konopac

    On Saturday, after I sold the Alfa, I went to a big American car meet called Lucky Cruisers Weekend to meet a friend and check out a van he helped restoring. The weather was sunny with no clouds in sight and you could see a lot of different cars from different eras (almost 550 registered cars in...

    Concept: Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo a.k.a. That's how it should have looked from the start

    Just a concept, but everybody knows how this works ;) I like it very much and I hope it completely replaces the original hunchback.

    Ownership Verified: Gt1750's Daily Driver Alfa

    So finally, this is it. My first own car :D It's a 2003 Alfa Romeo Sportwagon 2,4 JTDm - which means it has a 5-cylinder turbodiesel that sends (most of) its 129 kW (175 HP) and 385 Nm to the front wheels via a 6-speed manual. The car had done 177074 km when I bought it and it had 4 owners. I...

    No 56k: Classic Mercs Exhibition At A Local Dealership

    I like old Mercs so when I've seen this event advertised, I knew I had to be there. I was expecting just a few vehicles to be displayed inside the dealership, but I was pleasantly surprised when I got there. Apart from not having any of the famous racers, there was quite a lot to look at. My...
