Cry Like A Baby New kid on the block

Hello to everyone reading this,

My name is Danny and I am 27. Born in Croatia, I live in the UK - Reading, with my partner and a 3 year old son. I work in a warehouse and have done so for the past 8 years. I am a proud owner of a 156 1.6 Veloce (please take a look at my photos) curtesy of GS MOTORS based in East Sussex.
No mods, just original lines and curves..
I have to add that for the last two years we drove to Croatia for our hollidays and can confirm that the whole experience is beyond words.
All that is left to say is the word of praise for AO as I had fantastic feedback since joining yesterday re 'slipped cambelt'.
I hope to fix the car in time for summer hollidays and would like to remind all that the public transport aint that bad...

Re: New kid on the block

Smart move Eddie, I would have done the same thing.

Your reply answers my question : what is a GTA?
I know little about cars but the AO experience has definately inspired me to learn more about my pride and joy...and was wondering if anyone knows of any performance parts (at best price) I could 'slip in' the engine to improve the performance while rebuild of the cambelt disaster is taking place?

BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE
