Hello! At last an Alfa

So, my best childhood friend's dad always had a classic GTV6 or the like, and still has his own passed down Y-Reg (80s) example still rusting in his parents' drive. And I knew how they were good cars, and always enjoyed how strange and luxurious they seemed to a wondering child whose own family had things like a 2CV and Peugeot estates. Exotic, wonderful things, these Alfas were. In the meanwhile I tried Saab, but they've been ruined really, and so at last now, I own my first Alfa, and can be truly considered a car lover.
Well, it's not the top of any range, and I got mine cheap and it's from 2001, but there are a lot worse cars than a 156 1.8 Sportwagon! Seems to be in pretty decent nick too, with low mileage. For the first time in a long time I actually smiled on the motorway. A car that can make you smile o the motorway has to be good.
I also believe in cars you can fit a bicycle inside if you have to, so I'm glad it looks nicer than the saloon too

I look forward to discovering more things from you pros! For now, to see what kind of roof rack fits if no rails...

edit, so, this is my first post, indeed

Discovered the benefits of not going to a loca garage, but still happy that it's a good car and thank you! Crossing fingers, and learning a lot about oil!
Your welcomes are very welcome. seen a lot of good karma here, and it definitely matters!
