Looky Looky New to this sort of thing

Hello there,
Even though my black 1991 164QV is not my first Alfa,this is my first time in any sort of forum.
I have had mostly 164's (5) except for a 1995 1.6 146( nippy and handled very well ). My 164's were mostly Lussos with manual gearboxes and one 164 auto which had one of the smoothest auto changes I have experienced in any car.
I still have a 1990 V6 Lusso in black that will be back on the road after i fit the uprated suspension, leather interior, brake pipes etc... it did just start off as a chassis crossmember change, but you know how things go sometimes. At the moment my QV has just over 106,000 miles on the clock it has just had all the outside plastic resprayed and it looks the dogs especially on bright sunny days. I have a shed full of spares from 164's I have bought and broke over the years to keep my baby on the road and have never regretted owning one especially when driving to and from work on country roads.
It has been my dream to get the flagship of the 164 range and driving it hard makes up for all the niggles you get from Alfa ownership.
I will post some pictures soon. So bye for now and I am off to find out what else is on this site. Cheers.
