United States of Alfa Romeo
In april of 2000 Hille was forced to take a business trip to the United States and the Dutch Antilles (yes, it's a dirty job but someone has got to do it!). Naturally he was keeping his eyes open for italian beauties. On this page you'll be updated on his (alfa) activities in the U.S.A.
One of his escapades was in a 3.2 liter GTV6 as seen above. The owner pulled the engine out of a Milano (also shown) and hollowed out the cylinders (there's no substitute for cubic inches!)
Have you ever seen a GTV6 in this state??? The machine of a dream, such a clean machine (from "I'm in love with my car" by Queen). I don't think it looked this good when it originally left the factory in Arese!
Of course Hille's expertise was needed when checking out a 1750 GTV!
It looks pretty crappy on these pictures but Hille says that it was only very dirty but appeared to be in good condition!
After checking out the 1750 Hille was forced (at point blank) to join a trip in some english sport cars! As you all can see he wasn't enjoying himself at all. Sometimes you have to make some sacrifices. But seriously Hille's comment:"nice cars but I'll stick to Alfa's". That's the only thing we wanted to hear!
Here ends the report about Hille's trip to the states.
