Alfa 156 owner again ! Great to own one again
Hi, I am a big Motori Italiani fan,
I remember driveing my firt B reg UNO a 1.1 - I hear everyone laugh but it was great compaired to the Vauxhall Nova I had been driving before and secretly happy to that it got wrote off. The Vauxhall was slow had the the handling dynamics of a wheelbarrow and looked terrible. The Fiat was light weight fun to drive and had brio !. Anyway I moved on to a 33 green clover leaf and although it was old and worth nothing was a hoot to drive and took the corners like something on a stick and not to mention the engine, what could surpass a the noise from a boxer engine ! - The ideal centre of gravity for a engine thats why Subaru's are so succesful. Thanks Alfa for getting there first.
A few years ago I brought a 156 Veloce that was just as good as 33 anyway i am now on a runabout (credit crunch motor) 156 veloce 1.8 W reg - Its drives and goes great after a spark plug and oil change - I have just put a thread in on the RPM sensor though thats the only problem - Any ideas lads and ladies ?
