Driving to Reading this morning and bang engine went.

No power, or rather serious stuttering, and a plume of smoke out of the exhaust

Have been told cylinder has gone so prob new engine

I cannot afford to get this sorted so the Lady has to go to the scrappy

BUT

Everything else works on her no issues all the electrics and every is fine if not even better

I live in Rugby in midlands so if any one wants it and can get it away on a low loader or trailer of somesort they can have her for 250 notes (pound)

This is a short time only offer as she is sat at a mates garage and if I do not pass her on we will be calling in the scrappy

BTW no DSP or Phone or SATNAV!


contact me on 07757121794

I know mate I love the 166 but I have put more than a grand into her this year to keep her going and to me to have to look at fixing the engine or replacing is just not financially viable.

if anyone is breaking a bad body good engine 166 they could make a good car with this great body bad engine one

****slips into Professor Farnsworth voice****
Good news friends

The Lady is not for turning an acquaintance is having her a a reduced amount and will sort the engine out from another car. Good to know she will continue on in another guise.

It does mean that I will no longer be an Alfa owner (BOO HISS I hear you cry) but I will stay on!
