Well, after now clocking up 1000 miles in last 3 weeks in my first ever Alfa thought I'd at last say hello. After two years of following this forum, and looking out for one, I finally spotted a 57 2.4 Rubino Rosso one and bought it, privately, with I have to say not much checking on my part *cough*. I feel almost comforted that it features the common character traits of squeeky clutch, slight rear suspension clonk, red coloured steering rack fluid and the classic plastic 'catastrophic failure plug' in the coolant rail ... Which thanks to all of you on this forum, means none of these have been a surprise
Am now saving up for the cambelt change and 72K service. Might have been me you saw in Warwickshire on my way back up to Shropshire where I'm based.
Pleased to meet you all
