Wave Finally taken the plunge!

Hello all,
I have introduced myself on the regional forum, but thought I'd add a little on here.
After a selection of 40 or more different cars over the years, I've finally got myself an Alfa, a 156 JTD Sportwagon. Some may say a risky purchase as I bought it pretty much sight unseen off ebay. Its in need of a little TLC on the bodywork (few small dents and scratches), rattly suspension (changing anti-roll bar links tomorrow), but I love the way it drives, more like a sports car than an estate! I've had the car a couple of weeks now, and nothings fallen off, or packed in, so going by some of the horror stories, I'm doing pretty well
Looking forward to a happy relationship with the car, and this forum!

Welcome aboard mate!

Now that I'm here: allow me to draw your attention to the Folding at Home initiative (Please join the AO Folding@Home Team!) some of us AO'ers are involved in. Maybe you can spare us a few CPU cycles

Whatever you do: enjoy your stay!

You've bought one of the most pretty Alfas, IMHO. No gamble.
