Thumbs Up new owner after 20 years

hi. i have had several alfas back in the late sixties and early seventies, a few weeks ago i went to an auction to buy a family saloon to run the kids around in and saw a 156 , when the car went into the auction hall i could not believe no one wanted to bid so ended up buying it at crazy price. since then i have changed the cam belt etc etc rear brake disks and pads etc and sorted out a few minor problems. when working on the car i was dubious of the build quality and some of the strange systems but as soon as i drive it all of my fears disappear.... I LOVE IT... it has put the joy back into driving. I have even repaired a couple of alfas for mates. (i was a mechanic for 20 + years). Seeing alfas are so cheap i may even look at a gtv for fun.
