*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
After some deliberation and messaging with a fellow, Inverness-Alfa owner, I've decided to meet up, to check how many true Alfa-drivers there are over here.

Stories as: "I was driving and the opposite car coming towards me, was an Alfa also, so I started to wave at him, gave strange-looking results", need to be cleared out.

So, I was told that the Highland Foodchain at the A96, next to the roundabout for Inverness Airport, would be a good place to meet up.
Let's do this, I'll keep everybody updated about the exact time.

By the way, all Alfisti who feel to come over, from Inverness or not, feel free to come over, as well.

So polish up your "Bella Machina", take the camera with you, girlfriend/wife, kids, dog, and whatever.
This is going to be a good day, I'm sure of that.

See you then.

Re: Alfa-meet, for Inverness, and surroundings Alfisti

I think I'll be able to make this meet. My only reservation is that at the last AO meet I attended I was met by Fast Frank who was then the Scotland rep. & nobody else turned up. Now Scotland has been divided into 2 areas I believe he's the South Scotland rep. It would be nice to meet some of the other Alfisti in the area so I hope that there may be a few of us this time!

Re: Alfa-meet, for Inverness, and surroundings Alfisti

I'll be there for sure. I have a Goldy/Silvery coloured 147 Sele, so should be easy enough to spot.

It'd be awesome if we got a good range of alfa's... let's see if we can get:

1 147
1 156
1 159
1 GT
1 GTV
1 Brera
1 Classic 75/Sud etc

Re: Alfa-meet, for Inverness, and surroundings Alfisti

Re: Alfa-meet, for Inverness, and surroundings Alfisti

Since there was no time set I didn't go. I didn't want to spend the whole day there on the offchance that another AO would turn up. If someone wants to properly organise another meet in the area then count me in, as long as I'm free.

Re: Alfa-meet, for Inverness, and surroundings Alfisti

I took a run past myself about 2 o clock,even washed it too,as i said before it would have been nice to get a run in before i sell the 156 sadly it didnt happen but had one last blast along the back road to nairn and back.
Company transport now beckons but would certainly have another.
Cheers ken.

Re: Alfa-meet, for Inverness, and surroundings Alfisti

i didn't go, I'm really sorry.

I thought Aldosud was organising it all and I didn't hear back on a time or anything, and I knew the Highland Food Stop was still closed.

Hope no one's mad at me
