Your Projects: Modding a Rust-Free Alfa Romeo Alfetta GT

What's the perfect car to take on a classic car road tour–you know, like the ones we offer? If you are user greggearhead, that answer just might be a rust-free 1979 Alfa Romeo Alfetta GT from California.

The plan for the two-door Alfa? More oomph and touch of added style.

That means a few "period-ish" modifications to get more power out of the 2.0-liter inline-four while upgrading the handling with a lower and stiffer suspension and improving overall reliability so that the car makes it home.

A recent update saw greggearhead fit a red and gold set of velocity stacks as part of the custom-built intake, as well as shoring up the brake system with upgraded lines.

I really like those. It's a shame that they're on the wrong side of the California 1975 smog cutoff.

It's falling of a log easy to make them have good power.

Had a MIlle Miglia limited edition Sprint Veloce like this one back in the early 80s, but had rust like most of them did. Still like the Ronal wheels on these. Moving the torsion bars will lower that front end nicely.
