AT LAST I'm driving a 156 V6!!

Yippeeeee!!!!

With the help of many AO members, as of Friday I am now the very proud owner of a very lovely 156 V6. She's in super condition, and is a credit to former owners , welsh AO members Mike and Alfatan.

I'll do my very best to keep her in her current condition.

Next thing is to try to set up an Alfisti meet here in N Devon, possibly to coincide with this year's Lambretta/ Vespa scooter-rally in Woolacombe.

Thank you all for making my retirement that bit happier

All you nice people...................I've joined the right Club. Will look at the 14th July Tess

Bodyshop for Lulu (LLU) on Weds to have the cill-covers completely attached.

Next is to get a friendly mechanic to fit the camcovers (is that what they're called) from my V6 donorcar which I had stove-enamelled. Do I go for color-anodised bolts?

And the engine is good for very high mileages if you look after it. Mine had around 140k on it when I sold the car. Make sure the cambelts are changed though...
