iAlfa - Hold on to your 145 Cloverleaf!! - I was down at my garage this am and a bloke came in with a TR6 that was being naughty - turned out to be the metering unit shaking itself to pieces as usual. Sorry I am having a Grandpa Simpson moment.
Where were we...Right....We got talking and it turns out he also has some rather nice Italiana (but no Alfas). He has just come back from some big classic car meet near Milan and apparently 145s and especially Cloverleaf are starting to shoot up in value because they are the "in thing" over there atm.
It sort of reflects what happened here with the whole Retro Ford thing - I was offered a pile of rust Anglia a while back that the owner wanted £700 for. It had more holes in it than a coallition manifesto and was almost as rotten.
I gather that 145s are very easy to covert back to LHD.
My new toy now has a new air-box/inlet box, Lambda, MAF and injector seals as well as replacement of most vacuum/inlet hoses (I hate those bloody clips!) apart from one that we didn't have "On the Roll" in the garage..........And she is lovely again.
What happened to the airbox you ask? :
