Jasperrs Alfa's


I have had 5 Alfa's, first was a 164 T/Spark in Green, in the mid 90's, great car and lots of power and low down torque, I luv'd it , I burned a set of new 4 tyres in 9,000 miles ! and they were swapped round, so I complained and they could not believe the wear, so I when for a harder compound 15,000 miles on 7 x 15 OZ wheels.
It burn't oil towards the end, but I had great fun with spirited driving .
I then got a new 156 2.0 T/Spark in Silver with blue Momo leather, It was a very striking car
in late 90's, hence I got followed by the law and filmed for some miles, I only had 200 miles on it . I preferred the torque characteristics in the 164 over the 156, you had to rev
the you know what to get any oomph. I did not like this and lusted after my 164 .
I then drove a 1600 156 sport in Black with the 4 or 5 hole sex on wheels alloys and preferred
and bought it. This was a great car luv'd it. Then got a Black 156 1.8 sportwagen, I think this
had the best power/torque balance with 4/5 hole alloys. Then moved away from Alfa's to the
German diesel's. I always lusted for an Alfa that noise, style, Momo, stunning looks, so I got
a 1989 Alfa Duetto 1600 Spider Cloverleaf Black on Black on twin 40 dellorto's, I was in engine heaven., It was ordered by an English Officer based in one of the
bases in Germany, I understand it was a special order RHD in KM's 1600. Then brought back to England after his tour of duty. I would appreciate any help if verifying if it was a factory RHD as there are no badges to say it was one of the conversions. It has its glovebox etc.
I luv the 10 pumps on the throttle and the engine jumps into life and the suck from the dellorto's.

I have a spare complete engine that I shot blasted, lacquered, and fully detailed with it's
Carbs and trumpets on a stand in my home office, the engine is turning over

Its a centrepiece and a showstopper, as nobody expects to see an engine in a house
