Must be an Alfa nut in Sutton...

As I walk around the Wylde Green area of Sutton, or run, if the energy takes me, I pass a house that has a 145, a 147 and a 166 on the drive.
And there seems to be a Fiat as a run around.
Now that is dedication!
If you are on here, I am the bloke on Station Road with the 159, passed you on the way to the Aston express way this morning.
Great looking cars!

There's a guy/girl who lives on Clarence Road in Sutton, was three Alfa's on his/her drive last time I looked. A 147, 159 and another that I cant remember right now.

Paullec, I bet you have a Stromboli Grey GT with a petrol engine....opposite the Park Inn.
Commented to my wife only today that I want the same wheels as you!

Lovely car indeed.

Ah ha! so there is someone else out there with a grey one...

Yours looks gorgeous. So nearly bought a 2.0jts GT, then fell for the 159.

If you see a loon waving at you from a grey 159 or a black clio (the wifes...) it will be me.

that would be me then

I remember seeing two 159s last week, must have been you and a black Ti IIRC. Apologies for not acknowledging a fellow Alfisti, must have been thinking of work already....

I have not seen your 159 in Station Rd, too occupied dodging the parked cars I guess, I must pay more attention in future.

See you around no doubt

Nice to virtually meet you purple145.
I'm just on the corner of Western Rd, next to the overgrown/abandoned house that was up for auction recently!

Love your driveway, especially as one of them is usually on ramps!

I also need to make an effort to get to a local meeting. Will get the diesel fired up and rattle my way over at some point over the summer.

hehe, so many alfa owners in the wylde green/erdington area.

I'll try to keep my eyes peeled, don't live in the area but work there.

Look out for a black 147 with 17" GT alloys
