Petrol head well almost

Hi all,

New to the site despite just buying my third Alfa!

First owned a 3.0 V6 24V GTV. Absolutely adored that car, made a noise like no other. Eventually got rid of as it was not financially viable.
Shortly after got a 2.0 156 Selespeed. Fell in love with the looks (also put highbrow spoiler on it) but realised not long after that the selespeed gearbox was appalling. I got rid of it after 6 months and lost 5k (it was 2nd hand when I bought it!)
Last month decided to buy my fiancee a 2.2JTS Spider LE. She was diagnosed with cancer earlier in the year (she is winning the battle though) and I felt she needed a treat (she had a Ford Ka for 11 years!). Plus I get to have fun in it at the weekend!
Currently obsessed with the styling and I honestly believe it turns heads more than any ferrari, porsche etc. Got a few teething problems with it but they're being sorted by the dealer. it is an Alfa after all!
Anyway, just thought I'd say hi and looking forward to posting with you all

Hi there degsy. Welcome to AO.

Your fiancee's spider looks stunning (I guess it's the one in your avatar)
Great to hear she's also winning the fight against cancer.

I hope to see you both at some AO meets in the future.
