Proper Car On The Way!

Hi folks, I'm all set to rejoin the fold after a break of over 20 years since I let my last Alfa go! I've just bought a used 159 3.2 Q4 with 56k on the clock before it gets too expensive to run one of the great car engines (wot do you mean it's already too expensive - don't tell the wife! ) - it was that or my real passion - a 3.0 GTV, but that would just sit in the garage.

I'll be dropping it into the Alfa Workshop shortly to have an engineer report done on it - while I hold my breath........

My last Alfa was a 75 saloon with twin choke Dellorto's and it was the best car i've ever had - that handbrake design should never have been dropped!

Can't wait to drive a car with a proper engine again not an oil burner, although slightly sad to see my faithful diesel X-type Sport go.

Went to the Honnington event the other week and now looking forward to seeing more of you at runs and shows.

Hi and welcome to AO!!... It must be a great feeling, returning to Alfa Ownership - especially to the tune of a 3.2 V6
