    One of the best cars I've ever owned, I still miss her now. Mine was a J reg 3,0 without the veloce body kit

    It says 51k miles in the advert but if you look at the auction ticket it has 75k miles on it back then !

    I miss mine too, rot and a broken gearbox finished it off. Electrically 100%, which was a minor miracle.

    The ARC or alfa romeo control set of lights did occasionally flash like a Christmas tree, when I acquired the car it came with receipts for over £9k of work including a harvey bailey handling kit, braided brake pipes, grooved disks and uprated calipers, sports exhaust with custom manifolds, it had been chipped and made such a wonderful sound.

    I sold it to a builder and still regret doing so

    Nope, my ARC was fine, passed the self test every time. One light left illuminated, which was the coolant level sensor because the float had stopped floating. Swapped it for a plastic wine cork. :D

    Only paid £500 for it, which gives you some idea of the state of the shell!
