Finally I am a real petrol head. So they say.
hi all, they say you are not a real petrolhead till you've owned an Alfa and I am certainly a petrolhead, but had never owned an Alfa.
My list of previous car crimes is long including; supercharged Morris Minor, cobra rep, porsches, tr6, mk2 escorts, jags and daimlers, and the list goes on for miles. I often have 3 or 4 toys at a time and my wife permits it with only a slightly strained smile!
Well my new purchase is a 2000 W Alfa 156 2.0 twinspark that was Autodelta J11 by first owner and it has now done 27k miles.
Car is a peach but very unloved for last 6 years by last owner who didnt really deserve the car if you know what I mean.
I will post pics up in time of the car as I progress with its tidy up and servicing. At the mo its pink (not red), damaged skirts, cigarette smell interior and unloved all round and I am planning a full respray and love up.
By the way I am a garage owner which makers it all easy for me to do. On forums I am normally known as superchargedfool but this board wouldnt let me have a name that long so chargedfool will have to do, I am known for supercharging diy styley old cars as a bit of a habit.
There you go, thats me, my new toy and hello to all for now, cheers peeps.
