Edinburgh is a great city - you'll enjoy it I'm sure! I stayed there for 10 years and miss it greatly but I only live 30 miles away now if I need to visit!

If you need Alfa servicing or repairs McLennans in Loanhead was my preferred independant.

Aha, so someone's buying the Western Harbour flats then. Working on that site helped me to buy my 159 back in the day.

We provided the environmental consultancy services, so we had done our work before construction started.

BTW Joe, you'll get used to Dunc's (Pomeo) very peculiar use of colloquialism as you get to understand the language a bit better. However that doesn't help you to understand him most of the time

Now then, that means we'll have two admins within spitting distance of the AOSS crew, we'll b able to get away with anything :flag:

We're hoping to have a wee run in late September too, so, I'll expect to see you there resplendent in yer AO shirt and fleece

Welcome, you'll be just down the road from me then. (Living by Leith Links).

There are a few Alfas this way, have seen:

a green 147
a blackline GT
a Proteo Rosso 156
2 grey 159 sportwagons
and a black 156 sw

...no waves though
