Hi. I'm Andrew and I live in Melbourne, Australia.
I'm 18 years old and caught the Alfa bug as a very little kid when I got a Scalextric Alfa 155, which was the fastest slot car I had.
Subsequent other toy Alfas followed and now I'm at an age where I can drive a real one. A couple of things need to fall into place before I can choose a car, but I am looking at buying an early 166. The reasons for this are they seem to be quite unloved in Australia and so some of the older cars have fallen to prices just above those of the 156. They are also work slightly cheaper to insure than a manual 156 (we only got the 3.0 Sportronics here) or GTV. They're also stunningly beautiful cars both inside and out.
I've been lurking for quite a long time, but now I'm beginning to get excited about the prospects of Alfa ownership, and thought that I'd begin posting.
