  1. Garages - Size matters!

    South Africa
    I moved into a new house on Saturday with my SO, and the prerequisite for the move was that the house must have a garage that is big enough for 2 cars plus all the parts etc I have accumulated over the years, plus safe parking for 2 more cars.

  6. Matta matters...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I've got some play in one of the ball and sockets of the throttle linkages (all rods). Anyone know where I can buy these from? I'll try taking the slack up and see what happens but at the moment setting the idle is impossible because the accelerator pedal has two "off" positions...one is ok and...
