Hello All and Happy Easter

I hope you are all coping with the current lockdown and are managing to avoid this damn Covid thing.

I am currently furloughed so am finding lots of jobs in the house, round the garden and under the car to do!

If you are working away on you loved ones remember the like of Alfashop  and Nick Harper in Norwich and The Alfaworkshop in Royston are still open and trading so parts can still be ordered to keep you entertained while unable to get to work. I am sure they’ll be able to help.

All Aprils events have been cancelled, The May Classic Car Show at Old Buckenham is currently still on, but time will tell.

You may have seen on Quest last Wednesday at 9pm the new series of Salvage Hunters Classic Cars, they did a nice job of a Fiat 130 Coupe on last night’s show, though I though the seat fabric a bit too lose for my liking. They are also doing in this series an Alfetta GTV in the same blue as mine and with he same sunroof, I contacted the TV company at the time but heard nothing back, thought they might like to get the two together, (there is a third the same in Aberdeen), though I have been in contact with the chap that has bought the one on the show. He lives in Cornwall the three are about as far apart as you can get!

As were talking about (well I am ) car make over shows and if you’re not a fan of Brewer or Drew there is a French version, and they did an Alfetta! See below;


For those  with time on their hands and a love of classic rallying and classic Alfas see below, Youtube, can keep you amused for hours, the twaddle people post, myself included!
