Hi everyone I finally own an Alfa Romeo, it's a 51 plate 147 1.6 Lusso in red!
Just brought her home tonight, unfortunatly in the dark. It'll be tomorrow before I can have a proper poke around.
I did see it in the light at the weekend and for less than a grand she's a little cracker
She's the oldest car I've owned in over 20 years, because the wife has a new fully expensed company car I thought rather than spend ££££s on my own vehicle why not buy something old but fun
Ever since touring Italy in a Fiat Punto in 1998 I've always fancied an Alfa, I have memories of constantly being overtaken by them on their motorways.
She comes with a couple of small bruises on her body, service history, a wallet full of Alfa manuals and a new cambelt fitted 16,000 miles ago.
Whilst driving home I heard suspicious sounds from the rear end, fliipen eck I thought, hope its nothing too serious
. Fortunatly a stop at the Co-op for some milk revealed that I had just driven 45 miles with the boot open, phew
Looking forward to Wednesday, cheers.
