Well Happy Hey Kids

Hi all

Been lurking around here for a couple of weeks now but thought I'd save this post until I could tell everyone that I've just put a deposit down on a lovely 147 GTA.

It will be all mine on Saturday morning - can't wait!

Re: Hey Kids

That's weird - most forums I've joined the closest other members are either Newcastle or Middlesborough!

Keep an eye out for a 147 GTA - I've not seen any others around here so it's liekly to be me if you see one!

Have you used the guy at Bluebell Garage for any work? I notice they advertise as fiat / alfa specialists.

Re: Hey Kids

Hi Jay and welcome to AO from a member who strangely does not come from Co. Durham

You're going to love your 147 GTA!! , but as you've previously owned some very interesting motors I'd be interested to know how you rate the GTA against them.

Re: Hey Kids

Hi Jayg0. Welcome to AO.

I think I might have seen you today. I passed a red 147 GTA near BMC at around 12.30.

Re: Hey Kids

Sounds like that was me!

Spent all day buzzing about enjoying the absolutely glorious V6

This is the best car I've ever owned!



I noticed a lovely Silver 156 GTA at BMC yesterday also - Anyone on here?

ps pics will be posted in due course

Re: Hey Kids

Would love to but I'm working all day

Depending what time you're returning I may catch you on the A68 sometime between 5 and 6!

Re: Hey Kids

Great choice, and great list of previous choices - would love to hear how you think the GTA stacks up against your previous machines.

And do post pictures!

Pictures are taken - and will be posted soon

I'll try and do some comparisons too - mostly that list was me trying to find a car that 'covered all the bases' if you know what I mean. I think this time I've cracked it though

I think you've struck the right chord there Jay.... I've owned/driven a few interesting fast road/track cars in the past, but my 147 GTA with its fabulously vocal V6 is by far the best and most satisfying every-day car that I have ever owned.
