Totally different to the 156, no ABS, power steering etc etc ;) Came flooding back after half hour in her though :) Taking it easy at the mo, will photgraph the engine rebuild sheet in a bit, thats interesting reading. Suspension is lush, handles well and less harsh than the 156 :)

You got quite a rare car there Nick The body kits are like Hen's teeth so make sure you keep that on. Had one the same some years ago and a sportwagon both on carbs and 1.7's. Great fun and simple to work on.

Very nice Nick, you moving, looks like your house is up for sale?

Is that the cost of having 2 Alfas?

Hi Nick, - good luck with the car, I wish I could have kept it but just not practical, but its obviously gone to a good home ! Bet it sounds good with the carb top filters ! - its the best handling 33 I driven, enjoy it.

Very, very nice. I had a white E plate cloverleaf veloce years ago, had the Zender body kit that wasn't quite as deep as yours. I'm getting all misty eyed!! :D
