hi folks, I've been lurking around here off and on for a few months so i thought i should introduce myself.
my name is Colin, I've been staying in Stenhousemuir, near Falkirk, with my wife for about 5 years now and we just had our first child on the 9th July.
m7acd, i think you stayed in the next street to me, but I've not seen your car for a while, have you moved? i also see that spiderscot stays in Larbert, never seen your car about but you'll see me drooling and making funny jealous noises if i do. Who else is a member near falkirk?
I've got quite a peculiar taste in cars for some, i like cars with plenty character which is where alfas come into my life. I started off car life with a 1963 mg midget (I'm only 35 now so this was an old car when i was 17), i then had an mgb which i hill-climbed and sprinted, before i got my first alfa an 1987 33, moved onto a 1990 33 1.7ie, then 33 16v, then a 33 p4(wish i still had it) before my wife and i got matching punto gt's (spent a few quid on the wife's one, abarth kit and engine mods, up to about 170bhp at the wheels) which still have although they are not on the road. i also have a 1938 Packard which used to be my grandfathers.
Alfas I've got now are a 2001 spider 2.0 and a 3.0 super 164, none of which are much good for a 1 week old baby so I'm going to dig out the wife's old punto for them to dodge about in, so i can finally get a decent shot of the spider for a while.
that's enough about me for now, hope to see more people about with their alfas and I'll try to get to a few meets.
