2.0 GTV '98'

Cry Like A Baby Newbie - Sleaford, Lincolnshire

I've been browsing for a few weeks now and I thought it best to introduce myself.

My names Phil, 32 years old Aircraft Technician.

I've recently bought an Alfa GTV 2.0 TS on a 98R (Series 1) with 178'000 on the clock, yes you read it right 178'000 so hopefully its a good one as it can't of spent to long in the garage. It's come with no history prior to 2002, but between this date and 2010 I have over £8000 in receipts from AlfaAid including final cam belt and variator change at the end of 2010.

I realise it was a bit of a gamble at this mileage but at £425 with 6 Months MOT and a sweet sounding engine I felt it was worth a punt.

I've immediately fallen in love, possibly too early as somebody pulled out into me yesterday damaging the drivers side front wing, door and rear wing. Being a non fault claim hopefully it will be repairable and not written off, although its purely cosmetic.

Hi Phil, a warm welcome from the Lincs Mob !!!

We are quite an active little group here so it would be very nice to see you in the Lincs Lounge and at some of our Meets soon. Lots of these coming up, some great ones coming up over the next few Months.

Our next Meet is an Evening one in Witham On The Hill near Bourne on Thursday 14th June. Usually a nice night out and it would be great to see you there. Check out the Link and come along if you can. (Lincs Evening Meet – The Bells, The Bells, Six Of ‘Em ! # 3.)

We also have a Brekky Meet on the 8th July at Byards Leap, spitting distance for you ! (Lincs Morning Meet – Brekkers At Byards Leap #6.)

Our “ regular “ Meets are usually ( but not always ) on a Thursday evening and are scattered around the County and these are interspersed with our “ special “ Meets throughout Spring, Summer and Autumn. We have a lot of Events coming up again during this year, some of them are just Beer and Chat type things but a lot of very special ones too, we don’t get bored here in the Flatlands. Keep an eye on the Lincs Lounge for full details.

You might want to add your details on to the “ Names, Locations and Cars “ Thread too, I generally don’t do this unless people “ask “ in there, don’t wish to give away any secrets !

Follow the Links to see what is going on and join in, I can pretty much say that you won't regret it. Apart from myself everyone else in the Lincs Section are very nice people.........

From the Lincs Lounge also follow Links and see what we have been up to last year, some cracking Meets and some great pictures.

Lincolnshire - Alfa Romeo Forum (Links To Meetings Pictures Thread.)

Don't forget to look at the " Stickies " right on top of the Lincs Lounge page.



Have you seen the Lincolnshire Lounge ? Don't stay off the radar, come on in and have a look !

Next Event - TBA

Look Here ! -TBA
