:D The car park at work was full, and as I was going out in 30 mins I put my Bella on double yellows out the front where I could see her. 20 mins later there's a warden eyeing her up so I dash out. "I'm just going," I say. "Don't worry, mate," says the warden. I was just thinking what a nice change it is to see a lovely Alfa instead of all these bloody 3 series BMWs." He then regales me with his family history of Alfa ownership and tells me to take my time - there's no way he's putting a ticket on an Alfa.

Immunity from parking tickets! That I can live with!

Whenever I've been pulled up by the old Bill (not that frequently, honestly! :rolleyes: ) they always spend a good couple of minutes salivating over the car. It started with my 33, continued with the 155 and persists with the 156! :cool:

Warm glowplugs - Far from home and many moons ago, newish 33 was running really rough. No Alfa dealers nearby, so into motor factors to get carb cleaner. They were out but directed me to local Toyota dealer. I found the place eventually, and discovered they had originally done Alfas. Listening to the engine, the mech realised that more than cleaner was required, so he stripped down the carbs and blew the jets, and then produced an absolutely immaculate 4 barrel mercury vacuum gauge and proceeded to tune the carbs up the scale. Charge nil, comment "We really miss working on these beauties".... Memory, priceless !
