A prodigal returns

Haven't been here for a couple of years or so, so better reintroduce myself. I'm a forty something accountant living near Blackpool who has suffered from a love of Alfas from childhood. A neighbour's white Giulia Super was initially responsible - it was so exotic in a world of Morris 1100s and Hillman Minxes. A couple of years later, a schoolfriend's (Italian) dad gave me a lift in his red Giulia Sprint GT. I thought the brg MG he had previously was cool, but this was on a different planet. The bug had bitten.

As I explained in my 75 TS seized engine thread, I've effectively been Alfa-less for quite some time, driving a combination of my wife's Fraud Mondeo estate and my company Vectra (at least it has the Italian diesel engine!).

With a couple of months of summer still to go, I hope to resurrect the 75 this year. It looks like I'll be sending the Veccy back as well, as my duties have slightly changed and I'm not travelling as much now. This looks like an opportunity to get another Alfa and my sights are set on a 147 1.6, though my wife suggested I get a Multipla and was offended when I laughed!

Will let you know how I get on with the 75 and hopefully post photos later on.

Nice to be back!

Ian.
