    So about 13months ago I bought a 1967 Dodge D100 Pick Up. Was pretty banged up. It went for a full restoration and I am about a week away from taking delivery of it.. Attached a few pics. Pre and post restoration.

    . Is it good practice for me to remove the factory wax after collection? Thanks in advance.
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I have a 2006 Alfa GT JTS, which recently had a cambelt change at 45k miles. One issue, which is annoying me is that, when moving off, I need to have higher revs than usual, or the engine appears to struggle a bit almost to the point of stalling. > 2000 rpm There does not seem to be...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My missus always complains the pickup on my 156 is rubbish compared to her 147. Ideas? It can get dangerous pulling out of junctions, no power then all hell breaks loose at 2500k :/
  5. Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Has anyone ever converted a 75 into a pick-up or know any-one that has? Any thoughts?

  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Like the title says I'm suffering (very) juddery pick-up under 3k revs. Over 3K it seems fine, and also less noticeable once it's warmed up. I've also noticed you can hear blips/interference through the stereo matching the judders. I haven't touched anything yet - is it likely to be plugs or...

  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As it is getting a bit nippy in the mornings, I note that although the car starts without any problem, it tends to hesitate slightly on initial pickup from idle but is ok when on the move and temp on the rise. No warning lights and idle is smooth and fine. It is a JTS Selespeed. Any ideas?

    Had a mini meet with Matthias1344 from Munich in Germany last week. He very kindly picked me up from the Airport and went out for dinner. :) Enjoy the pics. I thought I had a pic of the side of the car, but clearly not.. The BBS wheels are awesome. This car sounds amazing and...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning all Am going to pick up my 156 next weekend (paid deposit yesterday). Dealer said he would get the car serviced and MOTed as required before I come and pick it up, but I'm thinking that maybe I ask him just to get it MOTed and put it into an Alfa specialist after I've picked it up...

    Since this issue crosses the 159 and Brera I will post here. I have had problems with people hearing me clearly from the car, even though they are as clear as a bell to me. County Motors changed the interior lighting head unit, which includes the microphone, in an attempt to cure this problem...

  20. Alfa 155
    Hi there, yesterday I got to drive my 2.0 16VTS for the first time (insurance reasons - not old enough before!) and I have to say I am very very impressed, I suppose its quite a step up from a boy racer 1.4 Golf! only little thing I am wondering about is that it does take a few seconds after I...
