Yesterday I took the plunge and bought myself an Alfa! 156 2.4Jtd Sportwagon.
Today I joined the AO forum!
Why?...You guessed, it's got a few niggles!
I'm Tim, I live in the middle of nowhere in Central France, (about 80Km North of Limoges).
I'm a Land Rover man through and through, but wanted an "everyday car with a bit of style",
so I have become an Alfa owner for the 2nd time in my life.
My first Alfa was a 1962 Giulietta Spider, red naturally!. that was about 30 years ago....looking at their value now, I wish i had kept it!
When I had that car I was inducted into the Alfa Owners club by a guy called, (I think), John Beath. He lived just outside of Ipswich. but would be quite elderly by now if he is still with us. I remamber attending some club meet in a Morris 1000 Traveller as my Giulietta was "mechanically indisposed" at the time. Although I was still made welcome, I was told to park the Traveller under the trees, so as to contain the spread of Dutch elm Disease!.
I guess the same sense of humour exists on this forum.
P.S Niggles posted in technical 156 section!
