Stumbled across this interesting little garage in the middle of nowhere when I was in Devon helping my mate with his house repairs - anyone know of them?

Not heard of them but they have a pretty fancy website! May give them a bell next time I need something. Did you see the 164 project they have? Not sure if that is up to date but looks good.

Wow, that seems like a really good price for that car! If it was for sale near me at that price, I'd buy it immediately.

Joe...Posted this on the classic thread:
Alfa Ragazzi is run by Stuart Mansel - Let's put it this way; We (Liskeard Classic Cars Ltd.) do a few Alfa Classics because I love them. I have been an Alfa nut since my apprenticeship and own a slightly modified GTV TS. I have a fear of doing cam-belts that borders on the psychotic even though we have an AMV8 in at the moment for new cam-chain slippers/guides - doesn't faze me at all. So we send all our cam-belt stuff and diagnostics we can't sort out (Stuart has every AR software platform known to man) up to Stuart, including my "Katie"



Stuart is very knowledgeable and loves his Alfas. He is an exceptional sprayer as well.

I can totally recommend Alfa Ragazzi

We love a 105! This one is in for a special "Liskeard Classic Cars" service.....bit of minor bodywork to do first, though:

Good to know - think I'll drop in for a chat when I'm down that way in October

Just didn't have time sadly, I would have made the effort if I'd taken the Spider but was in the DD

Managed to get out today but unfortunately they were closed. I sent a message to them and they responded quickly and apologised for being closed. I intend to go back next week. Will keep you informed.

Is it just me or does their website not work for everyone else? :depressed: I've tried several times to click on different bits of their site but I only get the home page

Snap. I don't think it's fully up and running. I tried to have a look at their project cars and everything's in either Italian or Spanish? They have a Facebook page.

I have just viewed this website too, and not everything I clicked on seems to be working. I was wanting to view the 164 project, as it looks superb. Gorgeous looking car! Great looking website though, even if I couldn't view it properly. Looks a very professional business.

Hey guys, sorry the website isnt finished, been so busy here I just haven't had the time to do anything to it. Hoping to get to it over xmas so that everything works and you can keep up to date with projects and cars etc.

Finally managed to get out to meet Stuart today. What a nice friendly and very knowledgeable guy. We had a chat about the service schedule for my G and due to the mileage I do, he suggested that I have her serviced every 4 months which sounds like a very sensible plan too me. Stuart said he would check the prices of parts and either phone or text me with a all up price, i really must stress there was no sales push or hard sell, more like a chat between mates. Hopefully Sophia will get her first service next Friday. Oh, the road between South Molton and Umberleigh is an Alfa Drivers dream, lots of twisty bends to power through....??

Morning all. Took "Sophia" out to Stuart at Alfa Ragazzi yesterday. Very impressed with the quality of his workmanship, he certainly knows his way around cars. He prefers to work on Italian marque's and that includes everything from a minor service upto full rebuild or restoration. His prices are more than reasonable and he makes a lovely cup of coffee. Would recommend that anyone on here who needs any work doing swing by and have a chat if your in the area.
