New GT owner

Morning all! Just bought my first Alfa. It's a lovely bright Alfa Red GT 1.9JTD with tan leather. Drove it back 160 miles from South Wales to my mates in Nottingham last night, and will be on my way back to North Lincolnshire later on.

I've so far noticed 2 problems: It has the stiff gearbox issue and couldn't get 6th; and there is a knocking noise from the nearside when the wheels drop in to a pot hole or grate cover. So I am looking for a local specialist please.

I'm also after some more please! I have no instruction book, so I can't work out what all the switches and knobs do (has integrated sat-nav etc); and the tan leather has some wear and I want to get it looking top notch again. Any advice?

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 and at some of our Meets soon. Lots of these coming up, some great ones coming up over the next few Months.

Our February Meet is a great Scalextric one in Spalding on a Saturday afternoon, this is a lot of fun ! Eight big circuits to crash on, or not, depending on your ability. ( Mine seems to be about zero…….. ! ) Try to make it if you can, check out the Link for the details. (Lincs Afternoon Meet Scalextric Saturday)

A combined Karting and Ten Pin Bowling Meet is in the planning stage for March, another great Saturday afternoon activity Meet.

Our “ regular “ Meets are usually ( but not always ) on a Thursday evening and are scattered around the County and these are interspersed with our “ special “ Meets throughout Spring, Summer and Autumn. We have a lot of Events coming up again during this year, some of them are just Beer and Chat type things but a lot of very special ones too, we don’t get bored here in the Flatlands. Keep an eye on the Lincs Lounge for full details.

You might want to add your details on to the “ Names, Locations and Cars “ Thread too, I generally don’t do this unless people “ask “ in there, don’t wish to give away any secrets !

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.



Have you seen the Lincolnshire Lounge ? Don't stay off the radar, come on in and have a look !

Next Event - TBA

Look Here ! -TBA
