1998 GTV

Alfa owner again.

Hello all, So this is my hello post.
Well ive just got myself a 98 twin spark GTV. I wanted one of these since I sat in one 12 or 13 years ago. My history with alfa's started when i was 18 and got a sprint 1.5 veloce ( black with green trim ) although when i first got it it was brown and green ( mould not trim ) with no front wings, anyway I loved this car but student years and women ment my money went elsewhere and eventually my car was stolen in cardiff, which was almost impressive as I hadn't been able to drive it because the clutch slave cylinder had failed, Its reg was C222 GGK, anybody seen it? I then got myself a 33, didn't last long.
Anyway I've just got rid of a focus which I was forced into buying by my last girlfriend because she moaned the GTV was not practical. Well in three years and 70,000 miles nothing went wrong with the focus, I've had my gtv 2 weeks, the key fob has stopped working, an inner cv boot has gone and while changing the oil I found out the previous owner had stripped the sump thread, and when i got in the car this morning I could not change gear because the slave cylinder had failed.
But I LOVE it and will get these problems sorted.
Alfa ownership again!!
Oh and by the way when I got it home the first thing my now girlfriend said," Its not very practical".
