Passion for Alfa Romeos is a worldwide phenomenon, including in Sweden, better known for its stolid Volvos, quirky Saabs and flamboyant classic American cars. Alfas of the 1990s and 2000s are a common sight, and Alfas of previous decades are part of the everyday classic car show on the streets. Any car enthusiast’s heart should beat faster upon seeing this 1967-71 GTV 1750, lowered and shod with wide BBS wheels and tires, just as mine did while walking down an ordinary residential street.
In a car as beautifully styled as the GTV, even a prosaic appliance like a steering wheel lock should look like a work of art.
The Spider Veloce inhabits the streets of Stockholm in large numbers as well, all of them seeming to be red.
Speaking of passion, this Spider is proof that the consequences of its original, non-automotive variety do not necessarily mean the end of Spider Veloce motoring. A child seat in a two-seat roadster is not a common sight anywhere, but this Swedish Alfa owner seems to be making it work. Bravissimo!
