New Alfa Owner in Yorks

Hi,

After years of driving boring euro-mobiles for work, I found myself in what might be a once in a lifetime position of being able to afford a brand new car, and when I visited the local Alfa Dealership, being able to stretch to a 1.8 156.

Iíve only had it a week or so, and I wish Iíd bought an Alfa sooner. Iím driving so much the milometer is spinning like a fruit machine (well you know what I mean!!!).

Iíve always enjoyed driving, the only difference now is that Iím loving it. Can anyone recommend any clubs or meets where I can meet up with like-minded people?

Oh Ė BTW Iím based in Yorkshire.

Dave

Hi Davey. Welcome to the AO forum and to Alfa ownership.

There are lots of members from your area and I have read somewhere about a meet in Huddersfield (?) I think.

Edit: Here you go www.alfaowner.com/Forum/showthread.php?t=33323 (Northern Meet)

But your profile says you are from Hull?!


Only kidding, Mr Speedstar, all are welcome, even those from the East Riding.
Welcome to AO and congrats on your new purchase.


Date for your diary - Fort Paull, Sunday May 15th, East Riding Alfa Day. Lots of Alfas, and some big guns.

Re: New Alfa Owner in Yorks

Cheers folks

I'm starting to find my way around the forum, and looks as though there's going to be plenty to keep me occupied (and test Mrs_Speedstar's interest in all thing Italian).

I'll sort out some photo's soon, and get them on here, or on my home-page.

Thanks for that Mitch. I've dropped the Secretary a line (and eagerly awaiting reply), although I think that I've just missed a meeting.
