Is this introduction board a bit like an electronic AA meeting? "....My names Steve, and I've been yearning for an Alfa for 4 and a half years".
And now I have one -well, it's registered in my wife's name actually...
. 156 JTD 2.4 sportwagon, yr 2000, which tends to bottom out on the higher bit on the lane down to my brother's farm. So we have a choice of scraping the bottom, or scraping the side in the hedge to try to straddle the grassy bit. Well, it has to be able to take a joke, and justifies me buying a fairly cheap one, although it needs a few bob put into to get one or two things right.
It's been very reliable so far, and while I was explaining to my 7yr old boy, the importance of having an Italian car with a lovely sounding engine (even though mummy isn't quite convinced), he came out with a cracking line as the turbo cut in: "It sounds like a lion chasing a bird, daddy". Yeah it does at that, mate. Do you want an ice-cream?
