"It's a bit late and mummy only had a...
  12. My close encounter of the tyred kind

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    To Goodwood for an end of year trackday in the cold and damp earlier today. Tricky conditions could have caught out the unskilled and inexperienced. That'll be me then. Coming out of Lavant corner fairly hard in 4th, one of a bit too much gas, a bit too much speed, hitting a patch of damp...

  14. Alloygators - sh1te, well kind of.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I installed some alloygators into the 18" wheels of my GT. The rears have stayed well put and do a fantastic job of protecting the rim of the wheels. The fronts kept working their way out from between the tyre bead and the lip of the rims. I managed to keep putting them back in but it was such a...

    ...have you woken up and thought to yourself? (belief in God or not) "Please Mr car messiah... start this morning? , just start" got to say owning a Classic really can be a money pit - it's ok though :)
