Back in an Alfa again (am I mad?)
First car I ever owned was a 1.3 Alfasud back in 1987, great fun but I moved to Ireland and it didn't like the roads or garages over there very much so it was given away when I got a company car.
16 years later, back in the UK again, I bought a 2.0 GTV, loved it for 18 months until the cambelt snapped, top end rebuild then 500 miles later bottom end failed, fed up so sold it and bought an Impreza.
Having been through an MG TF, a Nissan something boring and a Peugeot blamange since, I've just bought an Alfa GT 1.9 as I wanted a diesel engine due to an incresed commute. Hopefully I'll get more than 18 months and not need to put a new engine in this one
