Wave hello to AO friends

just registered here today ... it's all looking pretty good so far!

I bought my first Alfa in May last year as a post-divorce present to er, me and it has been a revelation and a great ownership experience so far - the roar of that V6 is pretty addictive as are the Alfa quirks that work so well, once learned!

I should mention that I'm not exactly unfamiliar with Italian cars and Italian car insanity and any variable-quality issues as I own a 1973 Lamborghini Jarama since 2001 as well as my 1999 GTV ... there is certainly a suggestion of imminent follia Italiana but I've (mostly) offset that using a 1994 Honda Civic for (some) of my day-to-day driving.

I'll get around to posting some pictures of my GTV on here soon, you can see some of them on NineOneSix :: Home

... but will posting that link get me in trouble with the mods here?

If it does, it will be like some of my PistonHeads Lambo-related posts from the last 5 years all over again!

What is your username on 916? I have a feeling I will recognise you and your car

What took you so long to get here? Click on the north west bit in my signature, that will take you to our regional bit where all the fun and events happen. Be sure to say hello in there too

I'm XXVIII on the 916 website and on PistonHeads and er... pretty much anywhere else as well so I might try and change my username here on the AO pages as well ...

thanks for the welcomes everyone!

My GTV is due a ruddy good service and maybe a few bits of this an' that in the next couple of weeks although the few journeys I've had in it in the last few weeks have been no cause for any concern ...

... unless you were the driver of a 5-series DeutschSache on the M6 toll road last weekend who looked more than a little distressed to be overtaken at ... that ... speed

Mr Price, a hello and welcome from a Mr Bowles...
Nice present to your self, I like your style...

(PS: Perhaps you should change your username to something less personal if you are going to post about speeding etc just not wise thing to do IMO, this can be done from the left hand menu in your Profile area)
