156 1.8TS Veloce

My first Alfa(s) !

Hi Everyone,

I'm a Newbie in the Devizes area of Wiltshire, thought I'd say "Hello". I joined because I have bought my first Alfa(s). I usually rebuild old Triumphs, but as its too cold to paint at the moment (and I get bored easily) I thought I'd buy a project with mechanical problems to tinker with until the temperature gets into double figures.
I was after a 145, a colleague of mine had a bright red one from brand new and I always secretly envied it. But I ended up buying a 156 1.8TS with a "head gasket problem", then blow me down a 145 1.8TS came up - "with a headgasket problem" and as they were both pretty cheap I've now got 2 Alfa's in need of TLC.
So, likely to be plenty of numpty type posts from me as I find my way around them - please be gentle with me !
