Wave New GT owner

Hi there. Although I've been on the forum a few times, I hadn't seen this area, so probably a bit late introducing myself, but better late than never .

I've lived in Bristol most of my life (spent about 10 years over the bridge when I got married, so my two children are honorary Welsh), but me and my husband are Bristolian to the core!! I now work in the centre of Bristol as a client manager for a pensions company. It's not as boring as it sounds and it gives me enough money to indulge my passion for cars I love driving, as well as football (I could explain the offside rule if pushed!) and going on holiday.

I'm new to Alfa ownership and picked up my GT, 2.0 jts a few days ago and loving it. I had a Toyota Celica T-sport before and although I still wanted something with go, I also wanted style. Boy, do Alfas have that in spades It's wierd, it's not just like buying a car - there's more to it than that as this forum shows!

We've got a bit of a car mad family, so if you see a green and cream VW splitty or a small black A30 or a grey A35 van (a la Wallace and Gromit) or a bright yellow Fiat X19 or of course a red Alfa GT when you're in Bristol it'll probably be one of us!!!! Unfortunately no classic Alfas yet, but you never know.

Hi Lynn and welcome.

Hope you stick around and carry on posting - we need more of us ladies on AO - if only to remind the boys to get in touch with their feminine side occasionally , or sometimes to kick them into touch

Hi lynnb, and welcome to AO

How lovely to see another X1/9 enthusiast on here. Are you in the OC? I remember there used to be a mad modded yellow car (a Lido with black ladder stripes, I think...) that came to meets.

Anyway, the GT looks great - you clearly have impeccable taste. You should stick around...

Sorry, I can't actually claim ownership of the X1/9 as it belongs to my daughter's boyfriend...but it's on our drive so often, we've become quite attached to it Strangely enough (or not) the chap I work with also has one (I think he is in the OC) and he's completely mad on them too. Must be something about italian cars
