|What's happening guys, all our cars run perfectly now and we don't need to post any more?|
|That pretty much sums my car up at the moment. Nothing to be done with it but driving, and I can't even do that given the arrival of snow last night. That means I have to get my wrenching jollies vicariously through the efforts of others. Don't disappoint me, guys.|

|Yep - same here. My car has never run better. Of course just posting that may be the kiss-o-death...|
|Yep - running well and looks like I got in one last ride for the season Thursday when it was 21 C (73F)& sunny. So I screewed off work at 1:30 and went for a ride (as well as did a few errands that had been building up) . Looks like I will be winterizing the car today and putting it to hibernate until April.|
|I LOVE NE FLA!!!!!! Super clear, sunny and 65 degrees today...hello winter! Hello TR-6 driving weather for the next 5 months! (kindly disregard this message if you live north of the mason/dixon line)|
|sunny and 72 here to bad it is in storage|
|I took it out my self on Saturday after a couple of weeks and it performed perfectly when it got wormed up, but I have to investigate some banging noise that comes from underneath when I go over a bump. Anyway money is in very short supply at the moment as I'm saving like crazy to buy a 1973 Alfa Romeo GTV (105 series) that I saw the other day and will come up for sale.It's a barn find that is incredibly original and absolutely rust free. It has 50000miles on the click and it looks like a brand new car. It even smells new inside.|
|Sounds great and Good luck with that Kypros and maybe we will forgive your traiterous ways.|
|Come on Michael, the 6 is the top priority.|
|Hello guys, really there is no comparison between the 6 and the alfa. The sound of the 6 cyl. is second to none music to the ears. The Alfa is a meagre 4 cyl.with sound that really embarrasses me in comparison. Adjust the valves on the 6 and you are done in half an hour. Try it on the Alfa and it's a days work with the cams out and provided you have the shims. Try to adjust the points and you are in for a professional massage afterwards. You have to bend in a position impossible. (I guess that's the reason old Alfas misfire all the time (mine included).|
The Alfa is not as fast as the 6 and it does not get the same attention. I have to admit though that it handles better on corners.
I looked at the DOHC and thought, boy this will have some poke. Little did I know. My TR-6 runs circles around the Alfa.
I think I'll sell it on and buy another 6.
