Just a quick hello from a new owner. Taken a punt on a low mileage GTV TS Ph1...
Looking forward to tinkering and tidying it and maybe even driving it soon!
Hope to find out where to source the usual service/consumable spares as well as a few other odds and ends for making it good.
Well, I'm feeling quite lucky today! Needed to move the 164 out of the garage, so decided to warm it up properly and collect the wee lad from school while it was out. Stank of fuel when I started it up. I'd been wondering about the short hose inside the fuel tank, because I'd thought there...
Its been a few years since I was on here last, I went from a 3Lt GTV to a 3 series BMW, then to my "first love" FTO's.
I got rid of the GTV as the seats/driving position really hurt my back, and some muppet ran into me at a roundabout so started "losing the love" for the car.
Let's pretend you've had a decent win on the Lottery - BUT - your other half says you're not to squander it all on cars. (As if you would)
He/she has given you a STRICT budget of £100,000 to buy one, or as many cars as you want - either new, secondhand or classic.
What would you buy for this...
We've all done it, gone through the fantasy garage with unlimited funds.
But how would you treat your GTA (obviously you'd keep it!) if you won the money?
As a kick off, after I'd bought the 430 Scuderia 16M; the Audi RS6 Plus, and a few other things I'd send my 156GTA off to the garage with...
I dont often buy scratchcards, but every now and then pick one up.
The one I got the other day won me a fiver :)
So, feeling lucky, I chopped it in for 5 more, and won another fiver! :D
My question is, as someone who's not really a gambler...
what to do next?

If only, living up to my name as usual. But if I had do I buy a Brera or a 159? If I go for the Brera do I go to Italy and buy Ti version? Now if I go for the 159 which version do get. Or do I blow my wad on a Merc or Ferrari or even an 8C? Decisions, decisions.
given the 'damp fun' everyone had yesterday in qualifying, who's your pick for the race.
No call for saying Ferrari, regardless of who finishes in front of them...
Like 'It's a Knockout' , Massa has used his joker for a 'free' engine change, so could last the race.
Enjoyed Belgium last week...
