HI ALL - finally an Alfa owner again
Glad to see things have moved on tech wise in the Alfa world, there wasn't (as far asI'm aware) any forums like this 12 years ago (not that I had internet access to take advantage, if there was). Back then I had a great 164 2l TS which I ended up selling due to getting married and the babies that resulted (much as I loved the car it was not very praacticable with babies and all the stuff they need), anyway time has now passed and I've grumbled at my wife about getting another Alfa, spent many hours telling my kids what a fantastic car I had when they were born (our oldest dosen't remember it back actually really liked it too, mainly around 3/4 in the morning driving through the lanes near us like only an Alfa can). Anyway long story short finally my wife wrote her car off so I seized the moment and mentioned the Alfa 147 (now my Alfa 147) for sale just down the road, the fact it was a JTD (blank look reply) so cheap? to run (she didn't believe that for a second) and finally to my surprise "You best go and take a look then, hadn't you" (I think she said "hadn't you", I was on my way out the door at that point
). Any way nice to be back in a n Alfa's driving seat (unlike the last one, this is leather).
