Alfa GT

Wave Hi - just discovered and joined

Hello to whoever spots this. Site looks very interesting and helpful and - most important - active and alive. Hope I'm right.

Had my GT for 18 months now and, just as I read in someone else's post just now, it puts a smile on my face every time I see it. It's my first Alfa and after hesitating (for years) over a 156, I saw the GT and couldn't really stop myself - especially after driving one. Haven't even come close to regretting it for even a second. If I could afford one, I'd get a JTD for commuting too.

Only other thing worth telling anyone is that I went over to the Paris Motor Show to see the 8c - and saw, touched and managed to blag my way into it. No doubt the first and last time I'll be in one of those, but I can dream!

Way to go Clive, so how does one go about blagging one's way into a quasi-supercar?

Welcome to the forum.

Re: Hi - just discovered and joined

Well, I put on a decent suit (a first for an exhibition), got to the stand within minutes of opening time and said i was really only there to see the 8c. To be honest, I genuinely believe it was the suit that was the clincher - bizarre! The stand staff were actually really good although if I'd spoken no French I think it would have been a problem. Well worth the hassle of wearing a suit all day long!
