I feel a bit of a fraud .... joining the forum before I've even got my first Alfa!
I've admired the style and grace of Alfa design since I saw my first 156 .....despite my cousin turning up late for our wedding day because his 70's spider broke down on the way!!
However, since I tend to run my cars until they are virtually scrap, I've not had the opportunity to get an Alfa .... until now!!!
My car history:
A white Austin Metro that i shared with my sister ... used to have to reverse 5 yards to release the handbrake!!
My own first car .... a red daihatsu charade 993cc ..... did 156k, including a trip to switzerland and back with a slipping clutch!!
A white austin Maestro 1.4 i "inherited" from my better half to keep the miles down on my next car.... 173k!!
You can see I'm not really a petrolhead!
A monaco blue renault Megane Coupe 1.6 .... very chuckable on B roads ... did 125k, but then some idiot put a huge dent in the drivers door in a car park and didn't leave a note (would you?) ... sold it for peanuts and it's still going strong!!
Currently driving a metallic Orange Fiat Punto mk11 (1.9 JTD) .... called basil .... now showing a tendency to Italian design flair? So far .... 170k ... gotta beat the Maestro!!
I occasionally drive my better half's purple Mini Convertible .... which is huge fun but totally impractical for my fishing gear.
But Next ????? ..... It's just got to be a black Alfa GT, 1.9 JTD
I'll be posting on that forum to guage a few opinions ... look forward to being a true alfa owner in the near future!
