Well Happy Got the bug

Hiy'all couldn't help but join. Let me show you the list of cars that led to my now having an Alfa:

'93 Nova 1.4 - was fun
'99 Astra 2.0dti - got bored of this in no time - oops
'87 mini 998 - spent loads tuning this had so much fun. It put a smile on my face every time i drove it, loved it. Only 2 regrets were: selling it and never actually getting it on a track.
'98 Fiat coupe 20v NA - I was considering getting a 156 but got this for the engine.
'03 Alfa 147 Lusso JTD m-jet - Hmm nice, got grunt! wheel spins after 2000rpm which isn't always expected.

Need to get a few bits sorted but all in its nice. Anybody interested in aquiring a fiat coupe? Lol, I'm prob breaking rules already.

My mini was in a league of its own. A roadgoing go-cart. But other than that I'd agree with you nigelread
