Re: Goodwood Classic Alfa Romeo trackday
Great day out at Goodwood yesterday but didn't take photos , as a pair of crutches and carrying phone or camera don't go together easily. Really nice to see and hear those 40 yr old twincams howling around the track , some totally standard , others with obviously modified engines and others sporting wide arches , wide wheels plus sticky tyres. The predominate body colour was red but blue , orange , fawn and white were scattered around. These Alfa GTV 105 Nord engined cars are valued between 15 and 100 thousand , depending on age , condition and spec. ie. modified arched big bhp cars built by Autodelta in the 60,s (GTAm's)are at the top end with replica's built on a GTV of the period builtt by individuals at the bottom or mid range.
Sadly my modified Stylus would never sell for anywhere near it's full original build plus modifications cost --- my recent aquisition of a GTAm replica is the opposite in value terms. It'll hold it's value and long term make a profit ----- lesson learned
Just watching yesterday left me very envious , so looking forward to being allowed to drive again then running in the rebuilt Alfa Nord engine in my replica. I was offered passenger rides but as only three weeks post ' op ' decided it too risky being thrown around through the Goodwood corners !
