Just posting to introduce myself. I remember when I was about ten sitting round the table, listening to my mum and dad and brothers all going on and on about cars and asking if we could change the subject to something I was interested in. (Dad was driving a Lancia Delta at the time and my eldest brother had just bought his first car - a Black Opel Manta)
So they all looked blankly at me and said "Go on then..." So I said "horses".
Obviously, I couldn't think of anything interesting to say, so I just said nothing and they carried on with their conversation. I vowed I would never become like them, so in love with cars that they were all I wanted to talk about......how wrong I was.
21 years later, and I have been the proud owner of many different cars, dad traded his Lancia for a 75, then a 156 and mum got a Fiat Coupe. They've got an old style Alfa Spider too, LHD which Dad still refuses to let anyone else drive and I've only owned a Fiat Cincequento so far in terms of Italian cars..... however, this is all about to change, as me and my fella are hoping to get a GTV. So it seemed sensible to join a welcoming knowledgeable community to make sure we get things right when we come to purchase!
I am soooooooo excited!
For my part, I drive a Peugeot 307 s, for work, and my fella currently has a knackered old Capri 2 litre laser..... I like to think of his car as vintage, although he would choose rather different language I think.
Looking forward to meeting you in the forums.
