Just a few words to introduce myself and my car....
I'm Simon, I'm 25, and I live near Portsmouth in Hampshire, England. A week ago today I became the owner of a 1999 Alfa Romeo 1.6 TS Junior in metallic green. Here she is:
She has done 59,000 miles and is actually my second Alfa. A few years back I had a 1993 164 2.0 TS Lusso. More recently I have had a handful of American cars including two early 90s Saturns and a 1988 Pontiac Bonneville which I am currently selling. I'm sad to see the Pontiac go, but other things have taken priority in my life and I needed something cheaper to run. I really enjoyed my old 164, so I figured a compact Alfa was what I needed, hence the 146 1.6! Nothing less was going to keep me happy as I'm an enthusiast and need something with soul that can make me smile.... a Nissan Almera just wasn't going to cut it!
I'm an enthusiast of all kinds of cars, but Yanks and Italians in particular. Odd combination I know!
I also jointly run a car enthusiast site at www.street-car.net
which is a forum site for the discussion of anything and everything to do with cars. It also contains a large car specifications database, which is my personal pet project. Please do check it out, and join the site and say hi if you like what you see.
Anyway, so that's me and my cars... Looking forward to getting to know you all.
