New Alfa Custodian Saying Hello

Hello all, I've been lurking in the shadows for a while and now that I have bought an Alfa Romeo, I thought it best to join. I have bought a 2000 156 Sport Wagon, 1.8 TS, red leather with wood, I like it, it is my first Alfa and i have bought it to run alongside my Saab 9000 Turbo.
The Alfa has a few issues (I like to think of them as character traits) for which I'll be bugging you with to help sort out.
Now about me, been car mad since I was a nipper, helped Dad rebuild a Ford Pinto lump when I was 6, first solo engine build when I was 9 (Ford Kent unit) and it went down hill from there. As for cars I've owned, Capris, Fiestas, Escorts, Novas for the first years of driving, then I developed a habit of cars that every body said to stay away from, old Rovers,Austin's, Saab's, have all featured, grew to love Saab's as they were (& still are) cheap, powerful and comfy old barges. Then I was on E_bay after too many pints of ale & realised that I had never had an Alfa & the law says you can't be a petrol head unless an Alfa features in your CV, I awoke to find that I had purchased an Alfa Sport Wagon and now the fun begins.

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!
