Hello Everyone !
hello, I am Martin.
I am alfa romeo fanatic and like Clarkson consider them the lovechildren of the gods. Can't abide ny other cars and would not want to won any others...in NZ they are mercifully cheap..
I own 2 these days - a 164 Twinspark Lusso Clovereaf, and a recent acquisition is a wide body 155 16v twinspark....I have had a narrow body 155 v6 which got written off in an accident by a inept lady driver (Sigh.....)
Insurance payout alloed me an infatuation with 1977 GTV 2000...and it failed WOF/MOT/Roadworthy due to fatal door hinge rust which seems the way they go....and traded it in on the 155 which is sublime in comparison with the 164's magnificence....
Looking forward to chatting with lmy bothers and sisters in Alfa, and to getting help and giving help in return - I am an Alfa 164 expert, and knw a fair amount about 155's, traditional RWD Alfetta-based Alfas, and Berlinas.
Wishlist includes a GT V6 3.2, I took one on a test drive recently and OMG it is a head-trip. And of course the 8c, but like everyone else the chance of that is microscopic....
Looking forward to getting to know you all better.....
