But finally back in an Alfa.

Bought a 33 1.7ie (couldnt afford a Sud) but apart from the kids being born I'm finally happy again. Company Fords and my current diesel (fast with tuning box) Civic just leave me cold.

Havent even seen the 33 - and dont care :) Its black with P4 interior has new struts, discs, pads, cam belts, water pump, alternator, battery, exhaust, plugs, filters etc (yes it was the one on ebay).

Fully expect 2nd synchro to be shafted (anyone got a good box for sale? or surplus parts).

So the list goes like this for italian motoring madness - -so far
33 1.7 ie the new one
33 1.7QV (wicked condition buggered diff)
75 T Spark
75 V6
Sud Ti Cloverleaf
Sud Ti 1.3
Giulietta 2.0 RS
Sud Ti 1.3
Strada Abarth 130 TC
127 GT 1300
Beta Coupe VX
Beta Coupe

and some other european stuff. Q. Should i see a doctor?

You've got it bad man! :lol:

The only cure I found was a Land Rover - 1963 one - but that sent me of in whole new direction, the good bit about one of these is that dents and rust looks cool on them, and it barely has electrics, let alone electronics! Currently looking at another one with a V8 :D

Yours terminally - Ian

well, you know when you get a feeling about a car - i got it. It was a bit more scabby than suggested, the roof lining was well stained indicating a leak. and 2nd /3rd was shot - - however a bit of judicious heel and toeing saw a quick change.

Ultimately didnt get it - mmmm that feeling - dont think we would have connected. - not saying it wouldnt have potential for someone else.

So- onwards - just missed out on a 145 cloverleaf, looking at a 146ti today, possibly a sprint and a 75 le if i can persuade the owner to get it MOT'd

need something this week.
