You were correct the first time... it was the showcase and believe it or not it was 2002. My 16vt looked like it had a shine that just came off the production line of course it later turned pink. Going by the dress code it was winter.

the Gtv was Francos if you remember he also owned a coupe.

It's to be commended you've owned the same coupé so long.

It is indeed Forti. That GTA rep really is a credit to Franco's great work and attention to detail.

A good friend of mine Mark (aka 'Cake' from the old forum) who also owned a red 16vt and then yellow 20vt coupes at the time and is also in those photos is close friends of Franco. So I get an update of it every now and then but yes as you say it's immense.

Interesting so you grew up with Franco then?

Hi Rosso , No never grew up with him sorry , I think I have only met him that once, it was another friend on mine Stephen Scot who is an Alfa enthusiast who sent me photos of the GTA rep he is doing , and saying he was doing a Scalino next, and I kept thinking I know the name Franco Forti
your photo of the meeting back in 2002 and ....when you said Franco's GTV ,my brain finally clicked yipee
