Re: How Many Alfas Do You Own/Have You Owned?

Three and Two of them were diesels

'88 33 Turbo diesel ( three cylinder engine )
'03 147GTA
'04 GT JTD

Will I buy another is the question, probably not, time to try non Italian for me for a bit of a chnage I think, unless I go for an older model like the SZ.

*Just* two. One 156 2.0 TS, and one 156 Sportwagon Selespeed. I always look out for a nice phase II GTV to add to my collection.

Re: How Many Alfas Do You Own/Have You Owned?

1) 1987 33 1.5ti. Bought when I was 18/19 and amazingly even then that was my 4th car after 2 Pandas and a Rather dodgy Uno that fell apart. Great car and I still have it in my Nans garage rusting away as no one would buy her and she was in need of attention I couldn't afford.

2) 1991 75 2.0TS. Bought in 1999 or 2000, a great car but quirky with the rear gearbox, U shape handbrake and inboard rear discs. Superbly balanced car though and great fun. Chain driven cam too!!! It may rattle when old but much less chance of a snapped chain.

3) After a 2 year fling with a Lanica integrale, then 2 years with a Punto (cheap motoring to the station) I now have a 156gta bought June this year.

I have atleast managed to buy the two engines in the Italian car stable that I want and can afford at the moment, these being the excellent Lampredi Twin Cam in the integrale and now the alfa V6. Two absolutely cracking engines.

All in all I have owned 8 Italian cars in my driving life so far and don't see me turning away from FIAT/Alfa/Lancia. I don't care what the motoring press says, they are fun cars to own and drive and as long as you find out the quirks of each model you buy and keep them seviced and with a healthy level of oil they are actually rather reliable. Touch wood no car of mine has actually left me stranded.

Re: How Many Alfas Do You Own/Have You Owned?

No wonder I used to be the technical advisor for members of The Danish AROC owning 33's To be honest I never drove a single yard in number 2, it had had a small mishap with fuel running onto the exhaust manifold before I picked it up

1993 Alfa 155 Q4

Re: How Many Alfas Do You Own/Have You Owned?

Personally I have had a 2.0 16v 155, and now the Q4.

On the drive at home there is:

166 3.0 24v V6
164 3.0 24v V6
My Q4
69' Duetto Spider

Over the years my dad has had a Sprints, Guilias, Suds, 164 3.0 V6, 164 Cloverleaf, a 156 2.0 TS, maybe more, the current spider has been his for about 35 years now.

Can you guess that we are an alfa family

5 for me too, but interspersed with far too lengthy alfa-less periods!

1985 Sprint Green Cloverleaf
- A lovely car, 7 years old and 19,000miles when I got it. Sold about 2 years and 18,000miles later to buy a house.

1984 Alfasud 1.5Ti Green Cloverleaf
- A cheap rusty piece of crap, bought for 200 to tide me over. Had it about 6 months. Surprisingly felt much faster than the Sprint(?)

1992 33s 16v Permanent 4
- Nice car, but after a very well known Alfa dealer snapped a spark plug and had to take the heads off to get it out, was never the same. Sold after about 2 years, after fixing the damage after I got a bit too close to a dry stone wall!

1983 Alfasud Sprint Veloce 1.5
- Mad moment of Ebay passion. Sat around for well over a year awaiting restoration. It will happen one day, promise.

1998 146Ti
- An 'almost' Ebay car. 92,000miles when I got it, 107,000miles 8 months later, and completely reliable until the clutch slave cylinder packed up this morning! Just off to top it up with fluid to get me home!

There will be more, of that I have no doubt!
