Dorset & Somerset Alfa Owners?

Any about?

Hi all... I see a good number of Alfas down here (specifically in the Sherborne/Yeovil area where I live) but I wondered if any of them are enthusiasts as I don't get any waves or flashes.

Would be good to get to know some locals perhaps to convoy to shows or just so I can say hello if I see you.

I drive a black 155 sport pack which is loud and driven enthusiastically , and I've attended spring alfa day and auto italia brooklands so far this year with the 155 boys.

Cheers, Dave.

The only ones from Somerset I know of are me and Ray (although I don't yet drive an Alfa ). Oh well, at least it's still Italian anyway.

Hello chaps.

Ray I don't think I've seen you about, but I'll keep an eye out for you.

Degu when are you getting an Alfa? Nothing wrong with a Fiat, my last car was a Fiat.

Hammy, I've had a look on the calendar and such, but I haven't noticed any south west meets coming up? Something simple like a run down to the coast with great roads and a pub lunch to me would be great. What are the chances of something like this happening over the summer?

Blue 147 2.0 sele here. Live in Chard, work in Bridport, often in Dorchester and sometimes in Sherborne.

I wave at everyone, not a great success rate though.

summer?
Well I heard some guy is thinking of buying a 147 from us so he'll be giving us his red 156 in part exchance, i'm trying to get a job at the moment so that I can hopefully buy it, apparently it's got low mileage and it's in great condition. It's in Alfa Red, I think it has light grey leather inside and it has a spoiler on it too.

Might be a bit expensive but hopefully I will be able to afford something as beautiful as this car sounds.

Sounds good. I see you're 19. Expensive insuring an Alfa at 19, I should know.

My Fiat is bad enough. First year it cost me £1,750 to insure the damned thing. Though the price is worth it to drive an Alfa!

Don't suppose you visit the Crown Hotel/Inn in Sherborne? See a 164 parked there occasionally.

Haven't done for a long time, so it's unlikely to be mine. My Grandad was in the nursing home at Culverhayes until he died last year and we often visited him in the QV. There is a guy with a 164 who lives up Marston Rd as well.
