Hi all Alfaholics,
I am Julian, friends call me Jools or Jules , whichever you like best doesn't bother me.
I am 41, live in Bristol UK and am now on my 4th Alfa. I had a beautiful 1974 Alfa 1750 GTV which ended up sold on because I hit the sump and coudn't get parts, hated losing that car. Wooden steering wheel, push forward pedals etc, real character but wickedly nasty and unforgiving in the wet.
I had a spider after that, too much trouble in winter, a 156 2.0 Lusso and Now a 2.0 147 Auto Delta prepared car. Supercharged and modified by them to produce 197 BHP and it does it beautifully and uses no more petrol if you can believe that.
I am here to make friends, get help and give help and advice and hope to get advice on insurance for Alfa as I have always gone with normal companies and not specialists or club insurance.
I am thinking of buying a 147 GTA and then giving it to Auto Delta to bore out to 3.7 and turbo.supercharge as per Top gears test of this car.
Please feel free to say Hi, introduce your self and help me integrate.
I wuld love to hear about insurance and how to get better deal than I get at Admiral.
I guess that about covers it. Thanks
