Just watched my 146ti drive away with a new owner.
He spent 12 hours on a coach from Cornwall to Liverpool.
He is paying a visit to the waterfront then driving back to Falmouth.

Yup, plan is to get the bike running, sort the Volvo, then the 155 can go into the lockup and my mate will do the welding that I donít want to do, I reckon it only needs a couple of hours max.

That's exciting- so, at one point Wayne- you owned TWO green Alfas!

I do like a green car, in fact it is probably my favourite colour, my v70 is also green. worshippy.gif

Skinny still on the drive, feeling sorry for herself, UKís largest cathedral in the background.

The Anglican cathedral- that REALLY is central Liverpool; you could walk to Bold St from there...

Lucky you!

My folks are from Birkenhead, and my (last) ex-wife was from Merseyside too.

Now seems like an appropriate time to link to another internet alter-ego of mine; in order to allow you to play this, which I'm sure you must have heard, but Great George is rarely rung!

A GT! That's tremendous; not quite my bag; but JeremyG on here went on to own one too...

10 minute walk to Bold St and waterfront, the dog and I were wandering through the cathedral grounds yesterday, that 2011 bell ringing was my first Christmas in Liverpool.

Nice replacement!
I have to ask, is it the V6?
I must admit that between the GT or the Brera I would develop a banging headache over which to chose.
