Hello everyone. I am just joining this group and am looking forward to take advantage of all that it offers.
I have an X Reg Spider 916 and a 55 Reg GT JTDm. The Spider replaces an older 916 that I sold recently and is in lovely fettle.
I have also just joined the Owners Club whilst at the Silverstone Classic last weekend - and what an experience that was; the weather not the event!!
I now live in the village of ALTON - of Towers fame - in Staffordshire having been born in Chesterfield but spending all my adult life travelling the World whilst serving in the British Army.
Apparently I saw my first Grand Prix from my fathers arms at the tender age of 18 months and have been a true petrol head ever since. I attend, and enjoy, all types of motoring events apart from Formula 1 which I find a waste of time these days (don't you just love Mr Ecclestone and what he has done to the sport?!).
Over the years I have owned all sorts of cars from a Heinkel Bubble car to a Westfield SEi (that I also built from a kit) via SAAB Turbos, Austin Healey Frogeyes, Citroen 2CVs (fantastic things!) and now, of course, Alfas.
I look forward to meeting some of you in the coming months and also listening to the expert advice and comments that I know are available on the Forum. Take care and best regards.
