I have a new alfa in my life!!!

Thanks to all those that offered their advice regarding purchasing a used GT. I am now the very proud owner of a '54' plate GT 1.9 JTD in Stromboli Grey with black alfatex and 17" alloys. It has done just over 17,000 miles. I treated myself to the sports pedals as well! This car is my first coupe and my second alfa. The 156 was great, but the GT is something else. I LOVE MY CAR

I picked it up from Canterbury today and drove back to Bognor, savouring every moment. It doesn't matter a jot that i couldn't afford the V6, the car makes you feel special in every way. I was so concerned that it wouldn't fit in my specially bubble wrapped garage, but it does, and like a glove!

I have made a decision to only instigate the 'Alfa Wave' for other GT owners, as otherwise i will be constantly waving to 156's and 147's, but i will try to acknowledge all those i recieve!

It was a long 5 mth wait for the car, but Northgate Alfa came up with the perfect one. I look forward to sharing my experiences with you, and look forward even more to driving it to Alton Towers next week.

Now just to avoid those parking dents etc......

(sorry, no photos, all sorts of issues with the computer, hopefully soon!)
