Well Happy intro from a newbie alfisti

I'm a bit of a quiet alfisti, My first Alfa was a clover leaf sprint veloce, took it for a holiday in Scotland and it was unforgettable. Sadly it rusted and due to the economics of bangerenomics there was no point carring on.
I work as a district nurse and was getting a little fed up of a sterile modern box of a car. My motorbike which I'd had great fun on in London for 10 years was a bit scary, If they can kill police motorcyclists then I'd have no chance.
Family have always had lancias, but one can't afford a topless lancia for less than several bags of gold so I bought Flash, a 1970 alfa spider 1750 LHD. Brilliant topless district nursing car for the country side. I've had Flash for 9 years, done one full rebuild, very pleased to say no rust!!!
Had a 147 that was lovely but the cat pee'd on the seat and it was too small for the baby.
then got an alfa sportswagon, Desiel, fly wheel dropped to bits, got it fixed, engine management system went BOING. tracking on modern alfas drove me mad, always getting knock knees, so sadly I'm no longer allowed a modern alfa, but at leastI've got Flash.
Don't do clubs much but need tech advice.
