Hi to all
Been an alfa fan since my Dad had an Alfasud Sprint (t reg) many years ago. My ex-brother-in-law inherited that until it rusted away then got himself a Sud Ti - in black v.nice.
I was still to young to drive at the time but in 1989 when the time was right (after having two minis to cut my teeth on) I bought my 1983 Alfasud Gold Cloverleaf. To date I reckon this is still the most inspiring car I've ever driven - never super fast but so sure footed....you know what I mean
The Sud stayed on the road until about 1995 when a company car and leaky front brakes forced the car into storage
. In the past 10 years it's been stored out in the wet cold and snow (the cooling system did freeze one winter
), in a damp garage - and more recently in a nice dry garage.
Dispite all that and maybe the fact it was plastered in waxoil from new the car is still in remarkebly good order
- so after some negotiation with she who must be obeyed
and the fact that the car was outstaying its welcome in the nice dry garage - back in February a nice man from Westbury came to take it away and at the promise of me crossing his palm with much silver - he said he will restore it to its former glory
!! - I would love to have the facilities and time to do this myself but .......
Anyway in the meantime (early 2004) after adding some tiddlers to the family me and Mrs K needed a bigger motor. We went to look at a 'german car' but in the showroom there was also a bright red 156. 'I want that one' she said - so into the family came our 2002 (02) 1.8 TS. I rarely drive it 'cos I got me a white van - but when I do -
It's had, and got its niggles - airbag light is on AGAIN
, bit of an oil leak -but overall - can't complain as its a great car to drive and that makes all the difference - doesn't it??
Thanks for reading my epic.
Anyway with any luck here they are.
Cheers for now
