I have a couple of requests from section members, one has the last 10 years of club magazines if anyone is interested, collect Witham or post at cost.

The second is after a boot hinge for a 939 Spider,  drivers side, or a pair, anyone got a set?

Now a salutary tale, if you are offered an Alfa Gift Horse, look deep into its mouth, I have heard a few sad stories recently about restoration projects. Under that shiny red paint, repairs of horrific quality hide!! Watch the video link, it may have been a guy like this that has worked on it!!. Prepare to be horrified, I thought the Blair Witch Project was scary! I know top quality restorations are expensive but there is a limit to how cheap one should go! Bless him for trying on a budget though…

I hope we can all meet again in sunnier times like the image of Classics at Glemham
