At Last! Signed Up.

After quite a few weeks I can post on here!
I recently bought my 1st Alfa, a 147 Selespeed 2.0 TS

Amazing car for little money. In a week I ragged it up to Northumberland on holiday and had a real hoot up and down the A68. Then a quick run through the Kielder forest - more like a rally stage. Now I need new suspension.....

I have owned many cars over the last, ahem, 43 years and this has to be one of the best. My last toy was a Lotus Esprit V8 turbo...
Because of my mangled ankle, a Selespeed is great. So, in the future a GTA 147 Selespeed would be great - even though they are rare.
Odd really, not having owned an Alfa, seeing as I have worked on a lot - especially Suds. Anyway, done it now!
Long list of jobs. Usual stuff. Cam belt, suspension, shox etc. I almost doubled the cars value yesterday by fitting a set of new plugs = made a difference though.

Welcome to AO !

And now that you're 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!

Thank you all for your kind words.
The 147 is still brilliant after 3000 miles in 5 weeks! Now for more power and better handling.....
