Completely off topic
as in the post title this completely off topic for GTV's so I may be flamed .
I visited my dad yesterday and he was having rummage through the loft and turned up some old Haynes car manuals, one was for a Talbot Alpine ( anyone of our more mature members remember these ) my very first car !
I rebuilt that car with boggo and the daily mirror and prayed it would pass the mot, it did and I was now young free and mobile .Remember those days ? You could go anywhere any time and not have to beg your dad to "borrow the car"
Any way the post is slightly Alfa related as we found a Haynes manual for An Alfa Sud ti, most ashamedly I can't even recall the car but I did change my cars more often than my crackers in my youth.
The Alpine, I wrote it off three weeks after passing my test, absolutely gutted, it had velour seats and electric windows, oh the joy of electric windows in the early eighties, young just don't know they are soooo lucky now, ( meldrew moment over) .
Which do you remember the most, first car or love, was it an Alfa or a piece of French tissue paper masquerading as a car ???
As you can tell by this ramble it's the Christmas over indulgence starting early, whisky out car on trickle charge and a merry Christmas to you all.
P.s anyone want a Alfasud Haynes manual, very very used and oily but free !
