Thumbs Up Hello from North Yorkshire!

Hello to all! I have just joined the Alfa forums after owning an Alfa 147 Ducati Corse for exactly a year, The two events aren't related!

The Ducati Corse is my first Alfa, but not my first car from the wider Fiat/Alfa group - I previously owned a Fiat Croma for 3 years. When family requirements meant that the OH would need the bigger car she went off and bought a Citroen (Boooo!). I was left with the notion that I would no longer need a big car, so I thought I'd be on the look out for something a little more fun. After poking about for a bit and having a few lacklustre test drives I found that I was missing the torque and feeling of power given by the 150BHP 16V JTD engine of the Croma. Imagine my joy when I found the 147 for sale at the garage across the road. Not only did it have the same engine, but it had a... BUTTON! One that made the horizon seem a little nearer. I took it out for a test drive and that was it. Sold to the man with a gleam in his eye!

Thanks, fellas! I've been over to the regional events area of the site and they seem to be a little sparse at the moment. I'm guessing that it's the time of year? I'd certainly be up for attending some meets - I have a little boy who is similarly car-mad, so it would be something for us to do together

Edited to add: Morris: is that design which you have as your signature (AlfaOwner Yorkshire) something which could be made available as a sticker? It looks swish!
