2.0 P2 GTV Lusso

bugger - it failed the MOT. Needs new rear discs and pads plus replacing some corroded brake lines which wasn't entirely unsurprising! It was having a new back box fitted anyway today, so all in all it's going to be an expensive day :-(
Cam belt needs doing soon as well, plus some rear suspension work

I see this car around Barry a lot, was it headed towards Barry or away?

Beautiful red TS with plate beginning M999. I saw you in Uckfield, East Sussex, 1 car up, and the pickup finally turned off at Downsview Crescent. Followed you along my route until you turned off.

Magic moment when you had a double take in the rear view, then flashed the Alfa wave

Minty green Spider at the road works traffic lights from Stratford. Exchanged waves, but why the roof up on the last day of this English Summer ?

The train :(

On the northbound A23 out of Brighton this morning, I spotted a silver spider (with the top down, good man ) in my rear view mirror, he pulled alongside me, smiled and nodded and then drove off enthusiasically - his plate ended in 9LFA

Then after I left work, travelling towards my parents house, I saw another silver spider (top down again)!

He was heading out of Midhurst going towards Petworth on the A272. I think the registration began with B - couldn't see much, the sun was in my eyes (for most of the journey!).

Well I was dawdling a bit (I go up and down that road every day in the Gtv), perhaps you were enjoying the first outing with the top down

I see you have a 156 and a GT, I guess I'll have to look out for those as well

Spent all afternoon jetwashing, shampooing, polishing and waxing my Vela Blue GTV. I proudly went out in my rare Alfa for an evening drive...only to see another Vela Blue GTV, less than a mile down the road.

Unbelievable

You were coming from Crowborough on the A26, and I passed in front of you at Budletts Roudabout coming along the A272 - Nice car

99 GTV 2.0 LUSSO

I know this isn't the right thread to say goodbye but seeing as i've been on here for a few years i'd like to say a really big thank you to everyone who's ever wished me luck or helped me with my GTV over the years, to the people i met last year at the Trafford Centre too... you're all great people. I've finally sold my GTV, i'm off to Australia soon so won't be needing it. Love and best wishes to all you Alfanuts.... keep the faith. Love BARONI.
