Re: Just bought a 156...
Very astute observation! Yes ALFAGTVLUSSO is Mrs Punts or Punt's Mrs.
The deep and involving posts are generally mine and the waffy, crazy bird-isms are from the good lady!
Fingers crossed she doesn't see this one!
We'll get some pics on as soon as we can. Should really have taken them at the weekend but she needs a real clean (not that she is dirty) because no car is ever cleaned properly until you have done it yourself. It's like bonding with a newly born baby when you give your car that first wash and wax.
Got the car back home Saturday afternoon. First job was replacing the grille for a spanker from E B then it was time for the clear side repeaters too. All had to be done. We are not hardcore modifiers but the car is tasteful. Anyway, pics will follow as soon as we can.
That engine is truly glorious though. We were out in my Mum's husband's Vel Satis yesterday. That has a 3.5 V6 but it was quiet and although a little bit poky had no heart whatsoever.
Only thing left to decide is whether to colour code the mirrors or buy steel wings. The colour coding is looking favourite because I would rather not have some thieving little sod half inch any of our new Bella.
