Thumbs Up Incurably infected

Well fellow alfaholics, it was some time before the alfa bug bit. I'm nearly 60 now but have been a classic car/bike man all my life. Italian bikes have and still do feature in my mechanical adventures. And apart from a fly yellow sud about 25odd years ago, most 4 wheelers have been british.
It was the suttle curves of a rosso 156 sportwagen that lured me, and after an initial belt in the wallet trying to find a mystery electical problem I was slowly reeled in. That was six years ago and this 2.4 oil burner has become like that favourate old pair of expensive shoes.
Looked after polished and cleaned she still looks good and is as comfortable to drive as ever.
Then a rosso P2 spider TS joined the fleet last year with of course the usual Alfa-- needs a few odds and ends sorting.
It had hit me! the flair and the passion was still evedent in the alloy and steel creations so obviously missing in so many modern cars. Not perfect I'll grant you but the plus's outweigh the minus's. A few days ago I was lucky enough to purchase a P3 spider 3.2 and although the Brera is most definately a beatifull car I felt the P3 was perhaps the last true Alfa. A blast to Wales and back consumated this new affair and although the weather was dredful---- I was in petrol head heaven.

And indeed here I am, like the proverbial bad Penny !

Hi, A warm welcome from the Lincs Mob !!!

We are quite an active little group here so it would be very nice to see you in the Lincs Lounge as well as in person.

Our next Meet is a Thursday Evening one on the 17th June, I'm hoping that it will be a good 'un, they usually are.

Follow the Links to see what is going on and join in, I can pretty much say that you won't regret it. Apart from myself everyone else in the Lincs Section are very nice people.........

From the Lincs Lounge also follow Links and see what we have been up to last year, some cracking Meets and some great pictures.

Don't forget to look at the " Stickies " right on top of the Lincs Lounge page.
