An absolute coincidental newbie to Alfa.
Just sold my E46 BMW M3
and really didn't have a clue what to buy as a replacement.
Due to my uncertainty I decided it would be a good idea to buy a "run around" to bide me over until I make up my mind.
Anyway, was passing a small local car dealers yesterday (by chance) and thought I would call in to see what was about. Got out of the car and out of the corner of my eye I saw a silver GTV 16v TS tucked up in the corner of the car display. Asked the chap what was the story with the Alfa and he tells me that it is 1998 and has 11,000 miles on the clock!!!!!!!!!
Aparently the first owner got into some debt and a loan shark took the car, garaged it and completely forgot about it until 2 years ago when it was purchased by a local enthusiast and subsequently traded in.
The car is abosolutely mint. It is the cleanest car i have ever bought.
Needless to say my wife has swiftly taken ownership of the car (I now have hers) and we both absolutely adore the car despite only owning the car 24 hours!!
Wow, I hope the Alfa relationship only gets better.
I'll post some pics at the weekend when I get it cleaned
