Hello all !
Fantastic that I've found an Alfa forum ! Better still it seems really friendly.
I've only been in the Alfa fold for three years and sadly most of that time my petrol 156 Sportwagon 2.0 has been sat on my drive with a broken heart. Perhaps it would have stayed there too if it had not been for some rascal leaving a 'we pay cash for scrap' flyer under the windscreen wiper. So galavanised by this impish insult to my favourite heap of metal I've decided to breathe life into it. The plan is to get a second hand engine (been offered one for £400 plus VAT) and fit it myself. There's also some light front end crash damage.
I'm sure I'll have specific questions but any general advice (no matter how basic) would be really appreciated for now !
