42. 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV 6
Usually the GTV badge is worn on powerful Alfa Romeo vehicles, having been proudly worn on rally champions in the 60’s and 70’s. During the underpowered 80’s the badge was worn on the less than impressive GTV 6. The exterior of the GTV 6 was praised, the fastback body was aggressive and fitting for a vehicle wearing the GTV badge. Unfortunately the engine of the GTV 6 was a disaster. The gaskets, hoses, and belts were all brittle and prone to failure, resulting in the GTV 6 leaking constantly, in some cases suffering engine failure. To make matters worse, Alfa Romeo left the U.S. market in the 90’s making replacement parts difficult to locate.
