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!

Hello and welcome to the AO

One of my favourite British 1960's open top sport cars is also the Sunbeam Alpine and the formidable V8 Tiger
