Warning Hello from Grantham....

Just thought I'd throw a little introduction of myself.

My names Dave....... (Duh!! )
And the 'Zed' part of my name comes from the fact that I own a Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo (the better looking 90's version).

Why I'm on here? Well I currently run as my daily driver a 1998 Rover 820 Vitesse Coupe (2.0ltr turbo), but I'm on the lookout for a Alfa 156, circa 2000 to replace it with. Although I'd owned Rover 800's in the past and found them a good sized family car with plenty of comfort and fairly reliable, this Coupe was the total opposite , harsh ride, totally Un-Reliable, and to top it off my good lady didn't like it from the moment she saw it! Well you can't win them all!

Anyway I'm now looking for a well priced 156, probably a T, V, W or X reg. Hopefully going to see another one on Tuesday over in Birmingham, so fingers crossed it turns out to be 'the one'. I've been looking at all of the Tips and info on buying so I hope I go armed with all the right info.

If anyone is interested I'll be posting some photos of my Zed, and then once I own one I'll post up the photos of the 156

Thanks for reading,

Thanks Fee

I'd love to give you another ride (in the Zed I mean! ), just so you can see what you're missing!! But alas she's been sat outside for over 2 years now as she's a little poorly, not going anywhere soon

Hi Dave, 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 Mini Midday one on the 14th July, I'm hoping that it will be a good 'un, they usually are. Our next regular Evening Meet looks like being an interesting one too, this’ll be just West of Lincoln on the 29th July.

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.
