Having had an Alfa itch for a while and the need of another car showed up so I had a scratch and got myself a 04 156 2.4 JTDM Sportwagon. I will be picking it up on Tuesday. Its red with a cream leather interior. Its in need of a detail so I will wait to post pics. The garage are doing a couple of things to it before I collect it. As it happened some one on another forum told me it might need work before I drove it. I got the book and a quick call to the last service man confirmed the story. So when my garage told me it needed a couple of parts before I got it I was well able to keep the price down and get a good deal. All thanks to a chance PM from some one. Happy days.
Its going to be used as a daily as I have a jeep for work. Suppose I should tell you about the other cars knocking about. MrsJCL is in a Mazda 5 and a 1977 MGB-GT. I have the 156, a 08 Disco Commercial for work and a e30 318i for the track.
So thats about all on me. I look forward to wandering around the site and even though I have a lot to learn about Alfas I hope I can be of some use.
