Drunk hello from Malta ...

hi all - totally new here although not at all new to car related forums

i love land rovers and all 'old' cars that tend to become classics ... just snapped up an Alfa Sud (1982 4-door 1.3) that was too cheap not to buy - always loved the Suds / Sprints since their inception in my teens hehe - so here it is and hopefully am going to restore it and joins my others

looks like a great forum ... will take me ages to browse b4 i start posting all my queries hehe.

so ... c ya around in here i guess

Hi and welcome to AO :wave:

You are now part of a large and friendly community which may seem a bit daunting at first! Hopefully this post will help you to feel a little more in control

The forum is divided into sections. Possibly the first one you'll look for is the Technical advice section relating to your own vehicle. That can be found here http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/techn...le-assistance/

Also take a look in your Regional Lounge as well; there are events and meets happening all the time! http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-...ts-and-events/

Finally there is the Community Section. This is just the place to post a non-vehicle specific thread, post photos of your Bella (Image Lounge) or just hang out in the Way Off Topic lounge! http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/community-discussions/

Enjoy being part of our family! Please don't hesitate to ask any questions (no matter how silly you think it might be) by contacting a member of staff using the 'Contact Us' button on the top left of your screen

thanks for the welcome

here are a couple of pics & some points about the car :

body is very sound .... very minor mostly easily repairable rust / interior decent though fan & temp control plate is missing / wing mirrors are not original / original alfa alloys / rear disc brakes need total change - front ok / engine sounds at certain revs point to big end bearing shells wear / gearchange sometimes refuses on 1st & reverse so gentle coaxing necessary / needs new tyres... oh well we'll see. here it is :
