What a beautiful day to own an Alfa!!

Well, having cleaned my GT last night, the sun came out in force today.

Was an incredible feeling, windows down, blatting along the by-pass to Poole, Guns 'n' Roses very loud in the new ICE install. Sun beating down!!

WOW!!

Anyone else have such a great day???

Yes me too I washed and polished mine yesterday as well. I'm sure it turned a few heads on the way to and from work today. I came home the long way to show it off even more!

I've just finished de-tarring and polishing mine too. Chuffed to the gutties with it - it really is a pleasure to clean the Alfa then stand back and admire. Roll on tomorrows sunshine . . . . . .

Re: What a beautiful day to own an Alfa!!

Yes, I had a nice drive to and from work today. Went out of rush hour so had some nice fast bits. My sound track was the Busso V6 with a CSC exhaust. Beautiful

Cheers,

Nigel

My car's grubby as **** having done a 400 mile round trip at the weekend. Bug blood plus rain marks make the car more than a little dirty.

Still enjoyed driving around in the sun today

Re: What a beautiful day to own an Alfa!!

It was a great day, finished early shift and drove to south london to collect my new 04' plate GT in carbon black, love it. The route home involved many A and B roads before having a blast round the M25......
Its black and shiny and i love it, ha ha.

Afraid not. Hoovering the grass and cursing the strimmer was about as good as it got.

However.... tomorrow is another day !

Too true Vince. Glad I hadn't put the steel wire in it as I wrapped the line round my legs twice when the cable snagged on a bush. Perhaps a rethink on the whole idea !

Back to Topic though ....... going to get out and about tomorrow.

Re: What a beautiful day to own an Alfa!!

Washed mine Sunday but needs it again really cause there is so much dust about. Still, its better than watching The Simpsons again and I get to try out the missus' special stash that she got with her car.
