Bye bye to alfa ownership ...

Well unforunately it time to say good bye to both our alfa 156's, with another baby on the way we hae had to get a grand Voyager. Also my old 156 is getting a bit old for my work, and trying to find a suitable replacement has been difficult because I need something cheap to run ie LPG... untill..

Last night I put a deposit down on a Mondeo ST220 LPG, I have been looking for one of these for a while but like the Alfa no one converts them, so they are rare to find for sale.

so now both our 156's are for sale.. I would of loved to get a Brera diesel but they are just too expensive at the moment, mayb in a few years I may be back.

so thanks for the last 5 years of Alfa ownership which in general has been very reliable, and i have converted a few peeps along the way too.

I may still pop in from time to time so I will say auvoir for now.

Mark

Shame but understandable in the circumstances. Still, as BF says, that doesn't mean you can't stick around here.
