Is there a more inappropriate car for a 20-year-old than a non-running, left-hand-drive Alfa Romeo Giulia Super from the 1970s? Having bought, rebuilt and owned mine for the last three years, I'm well equipped to answer just that.
Modern cars are all very well, but for unadulterated driving thrills it is older machinery that hits the spot. I was looking to scratch such an itch in 2017, and came across the 105-series Alfa Giulia Super - a peculiar, three box saloon with sports car underpinnings. Perfect. Less perfect, however, were the rotten bodies of the majority of UK-bound cars, so a cheap flight to sunny Italy ensued to begin my search.
