A step into the world of Alfa's.

Hi there,

Right after a 'step up' with each change of car, I'm now onto a GTV 3.0 V6 (Cup body kit).
Previous cars have been a Peugeot 106 Gti and most recently a Mk 2 Golf G60 Edition 1. (Not a huge list i know!)

A work colleague of mine is a complete nut about anything Italian, most importantly vintage machinery. Hence the list... GT Junior Stepfront, 33 sports wagon (Zender Body Kit), Montreal, Lambretta, 2 vespas, oh and the company Fiat 1972 'Abarth kitted' 500 (Bonnet struts, Disc brakes, Abarth suspension, wheels, Tuned Fiat 126 engine...the list goes on!)

You get the point, hence I felt the need to see what all the fuss was about.
I've Just done roughly 1200 miles over the Christmas break mainly up and around Scotland with no problems to report, apart from its handling in the snow!

Once the sub zero weather has passed I'm going to give it a much needed change to Powerflex bushes front and rear and then take it from there for the handling side of things.

At first glances the site seems to be very well populated with many helpful posts from the vast Alfa community.

Look forward to joining in on some meets, track days etc. Already have myself down for the Allams Guinness WR date.
