156 GTA and an oddity
I went to the Sydney car show today and made a beeline to the Alfa stand and the Alfa 156 GTA. Very tasty in black (should be alfa red of course), and sitting in the driver's seat felt very natural. I enjoyed the little details such as the instrument graphics recalling those of the original GTA. Just need to drive one...and get someone to give me one...Uh, the GTA I mean.
Also, I had a odd thing happen to my 147 on the way home. I filled the tank to full, but when I started up again, the guage stayed stubbornly set on where it was befor I filled up. The trip computer also failed to register the car had a full tank. As I drove along, the fuel guage slowly made its way to the "full" mark. Took around 15 minutes to actually get there. And the trip computer caught up as well. Very odd....
