A quick new 'hello' to all
Have just joined this alfa forum as I am new to owning and working on an alfa. Have acquired an Alfa 156 2.0TS and have already found the 'joys and pleasures' that wrack my nerves when working on it! I have previously been an enthusiast (still am, in fact) of MG, Triumph, Fiat, Citroen and former Soviet cars, especially the Zaz: most of which present challenges with me living in Australia! Have own workshop at home where I am comfortable with nearly most mechanical matters (though correctly getting the timing of this alfa from firing on open inlet valves is proving to be a test on the nerves).
Interested particularly in wire-wheeled British and European sports cars - more so if they're a convertible. Favourites in this line include MGB, Sunbeam Alpine, Fiat Spider and Triumph TR6. But now I have become engrossed within the Alfa marque, deriving a lot of pleasure and reward from it (in amongst that degree of frustrations!). It too looks like I might soon be in possession of a 2lt GTV - looks nice, sounds interesting .... we'll see, meantime I'll concern myself with this 156!
