Re: Was it you

Thought I'd resurrect this thread as on the way home at about 5.50pm I passed a Black 147GTA with private no. plate on the Chirk bypass.
Didn't notice you until the last moment so no chance to wave.

I also see a silver GTV on quite a few mornings heading north from Oswestry towards Wrexham. Anyone on here??

Good to see you too. Sian was working this weekend in Ysbyty Gwynedd so I went over to Anglesey to keep her company. I came home early to beat the tourist traffic
Didn't know you were selling the GTA?

That's a pity after getting it sorted with the Q2 etc. It'd be good to get an Alfa company car

Alfa's on the A55

I fly the Alfa flag every morning on the A55 between Abergele & Llandudno junction in my 156. Today I saw a black Alfa Gt on the back of an AA truck in a layby on the eastbound carriage way by Llanddulas. I was on the A483 myself on my way to chester last thursday after having a service & new top arm done my 156 at allitalia. Good lads up there telling me all about there adventures driving delta integrales across switzerland, italy, france etc & theresa kept the tea coming. They have got a lovely gold Lancia Gamma in aswell. I also saw a lovely red 09 alfa 159 ti estate parked up in lower bridge street in chester that same afternoon.

Thumbs Up

Hey yeah, just flash if yer see me, lots of alfa 147's around Llandudno junction today & a few phase 1 156's about, also a nice Gt in tesco at lunchtime. Alfa's do stand out don't they. Just off alfa's for a minute has anybody seen a new Fiat 500 Arbarth anywhere in north wales yet?

147's & 156's

Grey 147 spotted on A55 on Monday about 9,45am. Also assorted 156's spotted over last few days around Llandudno / Rhos on sea. p.s If anyone see's a Cosmos Blue 156 2.5 reg T87 KDM around that's my old 156. It's not in the quite nice condition I had it in anymore when I sold it in 2007. Shame.

On the way into work this morning I was behind a nice Grey 159 1.9 JTDm on an 08 Plate.

I'm pretty sure you blasted past me (I was in a works van) just outside of Ellesmere a few weeks ago, beautiful car TS, wish I'd spotted it was a GTA before you passed, I'd have wound down the window for a listen, surely better than Radio 1
Seemed to be enjoying it that morning

Think I went past Sabrewolf yesterday as I was coming out of glan conwy??

Sorry mate, noticed a little wave/finger wag at the last second.

I was experimenting to see what mpg I could achiev as I didn't believe 50mpg was possible. IT IS, but the people who get those figures seriously need to have a think what a joke!!
