An oldie newbie

At 62 years old I have just purchased my first ***** following a lifetime of British cars mainly MG and Jags and Rovers. The only foreigner was a Fraser Nash back in the 60's.

Now I have a beautiful 156 Sportwagon (2001 1.8 TS) that I fell in love with at first sight. I only hope that its real love and not infatuation! Regaining my youth but at least the insurance is affordable now.

Hi Mal, & welcome to AO

I've been around almost as long as yourself, and have owned predominantly British cars... MG, Jag & Lotus, although I have been down the quick Fiat/Lancia route in recent years.

I've always been infatuated by Alfa's, and I fell in love with the 147 GTA at first site. After a year of ownership the love affair hasn't faded and the bond becomes stronger
