156 2.0 TS

Hello

Hello everyone,

Iím Graham and I live near Nottingham.
I currently run a 2.0 TS in cosmos blue. I bought it brand new in August 98 Ė so itís having itís 7th birthday party next week. Itís present is a new set of cambelts (the 3rd lot itís had).
To be honest, itís getting a bit tatty round the edges, but still looks good when cleaned up Ė apart from the wheels which could do with refurbishment.

I started with Alfas in 1979 with a bright yellow Alfasud 1.2 Ti Ė what a brilliant car!
This was followed by a black Alfetta GTV Ė the Strada model - you donít see many of those about. To be honest, I got rid of it because the electrics kept packing up and the paint flaked off Ė but I still loved it to the end. I didnít have another Alfa till I saw the light and bought the 156.

My local dealer has just moved the service reception into the Hyundai showroom! I hope itís temporary.

Other cars Ė 3 years ago I joined the Classic Car Club in Brum and Iíve driven some brilliant cars from them. Trouble is Ė theyíve just shut up shop Ė are there any other jilted members out there?

Anyway, thatís it for now
Cheers
Graham

I wasn't asking you, I was asking Graham, who lives near Nottingham. He might be.

Re: Hello

Here are some pictures as requested. The Alfasud and Alfetta are copies of slides I took about 1980!
The 156 is pictured on Beachy Head - and no I wasn't about to throw myself off after forking out for another cambelt change!
