Alas ... the MiTo has had to go .......

..... to make room in the drive for THIS

Attachment 141300

Attachment 141301

A MASSIVE thanks to Graham (Dinomito) for showing me some photos of this car at the last AONS pub meet. I knew I just had to have it. Saw it last Sunday in the flesh and took delivery of it today.

Graham made sure everything went smoothly - even the transferring of my number plate which I thought may take longer than 5 days!!! I reckon he must have contacts in the DVLA

Anyway, I am one happy bunny today and can't stop smiling.

More photos will be posted in the images lounge once I come down off my cloud and get them uploaded.

Once again, thanks to Graham (and Neil) of Western Alfa Perth for the superb service and seamless handover

Lesley

Thanks for the kind words re the handover, we always aim to please. Hope the sun stays out for the breakfast meet tomorrow.

It is a very nice looking car indeed, just need to find another one for Louise!!

Cheers

Very nice, I always fancied one of those but I need back seats so it was not an option.

Thank you - fortunately I don't need back seats so I was able to indulge - I think maybe it's my mid-life crisis

Not sure if reps are allowed to change their names - Graham doesn't seem to think so - hence he is still Dinomito - instead of Daphne
