whoever Larry is
Hello. My name's Scott and I picked up my 52 reg'd 147 2.0 Lusso a week and a half ago. To say I'm chuffed is like saying Lance Armstrong rides bikes about a bit. I've had a few nice cars in the past, but lately I'd kind of gone off the rails, picking practical, dull cars for practical, dull, purposes. When a girl rammed me in my last motor, forcing me into the path of an oncoming BMW and pretty much destroying my car, I jumped at the chance to fulfil a long-forgotten dream of buying an Alfa. When I got out of one after a test drive, with my cheeks (on my face
) hurting from grinning so much, my mind was made up......
I'm glad to say I managed to get some pics of the beast last weekend, after it had it's first coat of Glym (I'm a bit of a car polishing fetishist
), just before it started raining...grrrr. I love it to bits. I love the handling, the performance, the shape, the sound, everything apart from the rearward visibility, which is apalling, but who needs to see backwards anyway.
Nice to be here, congrats on a good forum, good work.
