Hi all!!! Having spent many years frequenting the Type R forums, I decided to sell up my much loved Accord Type R and try some different cars. I landed a mint Fiat coupe 20V Turbo back in November. After throwing some money at it for Eibachs and new bushes etc, I never really got the feel for the Turbocharged engine. It was amazingly fast and sounded better than most things on the road, though!
Anyway, after selling the car in an attempt to end up back in something Jap, I found myself looking at an Evo FQ300 the other week....which did absolutely nothing for me! The coupe had the same power delivery, but made it in such a more appetising way!
Anyway, from this I found myself wondering what on earth was going to 'float my boat' now. Integra type R's were high on the cards, but then I reminded myself about the 156 GTA.....so went to look at one. What a car.....the love was instant and the smile was back! The car was a little rough around the edges (which I knew about) but after seeing it, my mind was made up that I want something Italian and special! As i have a love of saloon cars, the plan was then to hold out and find a MINT 156 GTA....until I stumbled across a little 3.2 GT!
So, tomorrow I am going to view the GT V6. If it is as tidy as I hope, I may be taking my first step into Alfa ownership, and if im honest, I can't wait!! The Italians have obviously got under my skin....and I can't wait to have my own Alfa Romeo tucked up in the garage!
