alfa romeo gt junior


Same place and colour, different car: Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT, I guess an early Seventies 1300 or 1600 Junior with modified grille, not so original rims and just a GT badge. But you can’t deface a 105 series Bertone.

Alfa Romeo GT 1300 Junior in rare blu francia/french blue. Almost 45 years on the road and no time for serious car maintenance because it is too much fun to drive although it was the entry model to the Alfa Romeo coupé range. The one in rosso amaranto out here in Hamburg – that’s mine and I will never give it away anymore – till TÜV/MOT do us part.


And you can keep your symbols of success
Then I’ll pursue my own happiness
And you can keep your clocks and routines
Then I’ll go mend all my shattered dreams

Maybe today, yeah
I’ll slip away
Sixto Rodriguez, “I’ll Slip Away” (1970)
