Mondello Aftermath.

What a great day was had by me and the old fella. Some weather next year though I will be bringing some sun cream I am technically a lobster. What an excellently run show and the parade lap was great craic I have to say. And the spin up was fun too with the man in the GT350 Mustang lunatic

Have to say thanks to everyone that made the trip up shame my car can't be there but sure **** happens. Was great to meet some new people Frank 155 man and Lenny fast bus that 75 is man. I wouldn't sell it for all the gold in the world its a rare a mint car to be fair. And to Cathal for catching up with us all on the M8 that Ti is mint with the 19" wheels monster of a car man. And to Paddy with the GTA very clean and some step up from a 1.6 ya mad man lol.

And to the usual heads frank in the 33, gerry in the GTV, Klap in the dirty but always cool 166 fair dues to you for popping down, and to Bart who had the most illegal number plates I've ever seen lol But they looked class and of course the most punctual of all the Alfa drivers Gav man

Was great to go for a spin on the track the 166 even though it is a barge seemd to enjoy it's spin on there And it never skipped a beat and I have to say thanks to the old fella for letting me drive it all day even when it's fathers day what a man.

Track day yes please.

Unforgettable day, great to meet ye all in the metal. Lads ye have some increadable much loved cars. A lot of work done on those ladies. Must get rid of all the embarrasing plastic under the bonnet

have to say fair play to a certain 166 taking on the US muscle.... You did us proud!

have around 150 photos to post but will put them up tomorrow. Broadband at work is better.

Thanks again to all.
cheers

Mint, can't wait to see the pics you got Cathal. Good man on catching up on us. I was amazed on how the 2.5 got on up the road lol. The Ti is an epic looking car couldn't believe how low it was and the 19's proper man

A fantastic display of superb Alfa Romeos of all ages and types, well done to all involved. Red 155's up from Tipp and down from Mayo put a alonging on me to get another 155. Red 159Ti is an awesome looking Sports Saloon, makes you wonder how the hell the 159 has not sold in bigger numbers. With all the excellent Suds, Sprints, GTV's, Spiders, Duetto's, 166's, 156's, 145's et al it was some show of Alfas.

@ROB you still owe me a burger ! and Geordie (Aka George) for trusting me with the Veedio today . The shakes got me but it must have been the drink

That weather was only put to shame by the show of cars yesterday. Well done to everyone for getting the Alfa stand looking as well as it did. I did not get to talk to anyone as I flew around but that can be done another time.
