Wave For better... or worse!

Hi Folks, new GT owner here

Bit of a trail getting here having been fed up with the sensible Dad's taxi I was driving (Xsara Picasso) and decided to get something for me Started out looking at Toyota Celicas and Hyundai Coupés then the BMW Coupé among others but finally settled on the GT 1.9 JTDM on a 06 plate

Love it already but the drivers door handle just stopped working and has a loose hinge but fortunately (if that's the right term!) it seems to be a common fault and I've already found a wealth of advice on this forum so I'll be having a go at fixing it this weekend

I think I'm going to like it here

Hi Chris, a warm welcome from the Lincs Mob !!!

We are quite an active little group here so it would be very nice to see you in the Lincs Lounge and at some of our Meets soon. Lots of these coming up, some great ones coming up over the next few Months.

Our next Meet is one of our favourites, the annual Scalextric Saturday where you get to drive around the top European circuits, a great and cheap afternoon out for all the family and I’m offering some extra prizes this year ! It’s near Spalding and is taking place on the afternoon of the 23rd Feb, just follow the Link and see what it is all about. (Lincs Afternoon Meet – Scalextric Saturday # 4.)

Our “ regular “ Meets are usually ( but not always ) on a Thursday evening and are scattered around the County and these are interspersed with our “ special “ Meets throughout Spring, Summer and Autumn. We always have a lot of Events during the year, some of them are just Beer and Chat type things but a lot of very special ones too, we don’t get bored here in the Flatlands. Keep an eye on the Lincs Lounge for full details. As the nights are still long and dark our Meets will mostly be daytime ones until about April time.

You might want to add your details on to the “ Names, Locations and Cars “ Thread too, I generally don’t do this unless people “ask “ in there, don’t wish to give away any secrets !

Follow the Links to see what is going on and join in, I can pretty much say that you won't regret it. Apart from myself everyone else in the Lincs Section are very nice people.........

From the Lincs Lounge also follow Links and see what we have been up to in the past, some cracking Meets and some great pictures.

Lincolnshire - Alfa Romeo Forum (Links To Meetings Pictures Thread.)

Don't forget to look at the " Stickies " right on top of the Lincs Lounge page.



Have you seen the Lincolnshire Lounge ? Don't stay off the radar, come on in and have a look !

Next Event - TBA

Look Here ! -TBA
