So this just happened.
It's a car I've been wanting for many many years but (because I'm in Singapore) never thought I'd ever be able to afford one since they are extremely rare here.
The plan was to save up for an Alfetta GT or GTV by the end of this year, but as usual, things don't always go according to plan and this '02 came up. It was slightly more than what I had planned to spend on an Alfetta and eventually, I caved. She ain't perfect but she's pretty well sorted and I know her previous owner spent quite an amount bringing her to this current state.
May I present, Alicia Silverstone the single carb 2002. Manufactured on August 27th, 1973 and delivered on September 13th, 1973 to Singapore. The original colour was Golf, paint code 070.
It was a car I knew of from many years ago. This was how it looked 10 years ago in 2009.
Then it was repainted red a few years later. Many owners later, my friend picked her up and the end result is the silver car on top.
Now she's mine and sometimes, I still cannot believe it. One of my dream cars and enjoying every drive. She's really really slow, but I love the drive and I'm still learning about the car as I go along.
She will be the weekend cruiser. The daily driver is an E34 M5.
