Drunk My 156 Passes its MOT in SPECTACULAR Alfa Style!

Friend of mine runs a small independent garage and uses a local MOT test centre for his MOT's, obviously supporting the local area my car goes to him for it's MOT yesterday.

He tells me to call at 2.00 p.m yesterday for an update.

Now, as a bit of background we often take the mick out of one another because he believes an Alfa is a nice place to break down should buy Japanese etc etc, I tell him to find his soul.

So I call him up yesterday at 2.00 pm and with my tongue firmly in cheek ask him how the most gorgeous Alfa in the world that obviously stunned the MOT tester got on.

Apparently it broke down on the ramp blocking access to the ramp for 2 hours. The MOT man was most unimpressed. No MOT conducted.

Anyway she redeemed herself in true fashion today by passing first time once a dodgy crank sensor (I had my suspicions anyway) was replaced.

I prefer my cars to be Alfa's, and my computers to have no Windows.
