After a protracted chase of two years, sold it on within 24 hours

1986 Alfa Romeo 90 Gold Cloverleaf

 

That big hole in the dash is where the long-gone branded briefcase went.  Note the handbrake madness.  The funny sliding 'clocks' worked though, had a video of it somewhere

I always wanted a 90 with briefcase.

 

Compensation is my 156 V6, although I always preferred the red of my previous 156 TS.

Had to try one with the boxer engine as well for good measure.  Quite liked it, great condition top and bottom and not a rusty one either.  In JRG too

I'll raise you the dash lift 156 !

 

Had this one 7 years now.  Must do that clutch, it's the 2.4 big banger derv wagon too.  2002 Alfa 156

Prior to that... the pre-lifter, but with period Nokia carrier for extra classic material fittings

This is literal torture with those Alfas. I came this close to winning a 145 a few weeks back but outbid at the last second. BAH.

 

 

This is the Brava interior:

Dull as heck compared to the above. Well laid out however.

A bit Italianate in the colour-match department: Limeflower Green exterior, Navy interior. 

 

Bought it as MOT failure, recovered it home.  Had it fixed.  Kept it a year.  Still very much on the show scene

Do you like Brown? Brown all over and everywhere?

What you want is the Acclaim you always promised yourself. Kept this one a short while and sold it onto to Trigger of this parish (see page 4). He kept it for 1000% longer than I, though. Come to think of it, the first photo might actually be one of his photos. The Internet is awash with photos of this particular car, anyhow.

Well that depends if you fancy the 1984 Alfa 33 Gold Cloverleaf dash over that Sprint, what with the 33 binnacle moving with the steering column 8)

download_1.jpg

This is still in a garage under a load of boxes. A Boxer, eh, under boxes, hmm.


Also, the 1986 Alfa 33 Green Cloverleaf

GCLint.jpg

Scrapped the dire body a few years ago, but everything else was saved including the dash itself, all in a lockup.


Early Sprint every time!

One more Alfa Interior, our current 1983 Giulietta 2.0 is not on the road and needs a bit of work.

 

We also had a 1976 Alfetta 1.6 and a 1982 Giulietta 1.8 but unfortunately I have not got photos.

That Porsche interior is fantastic...Obviously appealed to the same market as the Mercedes of the time which came with some rather lurid Plaid cloth on some models as I recall.  I miss the German carmakers doing things like that...

 

Saw a late Volvo 850 (I think it was anyway, it had been debadged) today which reminded me of one of the favourite options that Volvo offered at the time - which I seem to recall the automotive press absolutely hating.  Which was to have the usual wood (or at least wood effect) trim in place, but using a really light coloured wood rather than the usual dark veneers.

 

I still reckon it looks absolutely fantastic, very much different to the norm, and really brightens up what could have otherwise been a very dull (if exceedingly well executed) interior design.

 

...Seem to recall that was one of the last cars to feature the two-coloured green and amber Lambda warning light on the dash, which as a youngster I found quite fascinating.  Yes, I was a strange kid.

 

Would still like one of those Volvos if I could find one at the right price that wasn't utterly knackered.
