Just doing the customary thing and introducing myself. I'm Tim, I'm 23 and Live in Australia. I am currently in Orange in NSW, but am moving back to QLD next week thank god!
A little about me: My first car was a Alfa Romeo 33, series 1, 1.5 twin carb. 10 Days after having my license I rolled it and killed it
Second car was another 33 which I took the motor out of the first car and put it into a car which was being scrapped. I had this for just over a year, did the shocks and brakes up and loved the thing.
Third car was a grey 33, series 2 1.7 fuel injection 8v. Again this car was a hoot, not as much fun as the 1.5 carb though interestingly enough. (This got T-Boned at a round about by some st***d cow)
I then bought another 33, this time it was supposed to be a series 2 1.7 green cloverleaf twin carb, I flew to Sydney to pick it up, drove it back to Brisbane, the next day I went to take it to get a road worthy and the gearbox blew up
I ripped the thing out and found out it was actually a 1.5 ltr motor....not happy. I took the fuel injection off the previous 1.7 and was going to throw some carb's on it, but that never seemed to happen and I sold both car and motor separately after replacing the gear box on the car.
My last car and current alfa I have had since 2006, I bought it for $1000 I think, its a series 1 33 which had the tougher interior, I got some Ti Recaro interior for it, and the previous bloke has thrown a 1.7 16v motor into the thing. I started to re-build it but I never seemed to have the time, but it is currently at John French motors in Brisbane getting ready to rumble again
As you might be able to tell I'm a slight 33 fan, I know they are not the most popular of Alfa's out there, but I enjoy them and think they are a hoot!
Im also currently driving a VW golf VR6 which I will be selling soon as I'm moving to Mackay, I'm going to be buying a new Giulietta I think.
Anyway thats enough out of me, Hi all!
