From: Southend-On-Sea



Hi everyone,
after many years I've purchased another 145...road legal and low mileage 1.8TS!
I was offered several 145s but all in need of some heavy TLC.
This 1 will be a slow project while still on the road.
My 155 DTM replica
...god knows how many years project has priority...
I hope to complete late 2018.

Hey Gropius!

welcome back!

as it happens the 1.8TS is now regarded as the choice of discerning professionals!

So- it's great to share an engine with you...


can you post any pictures of your new project..?

It has taken far to long...
...to many moves with NO working space
and the birth of my son...
Since we've moved to our new house
progress on the DTM has been huge!

To be compared to Seb is embarrassing rant.gif coolio.gif
The amount of custom parts on my DTM is shocking!
...and the engine conversion was already sort of done... whistle.gif

Hi!
That 145 looks really clean. But being a 155 fan I just have to ask for some pics of your replica haha.
Cheers.

Thanks,
the shell is in pretty good condition.
Engine is very strong and low mileage too.
Suspension and interior are shocking and the exhaust needs replacing.
It's a road legal mini project.

A picture of my old 155 V6 12v driving through London...
...posted on an Italian forum...lol
Now in Alfa heaven...

Nice to see you are back too...lol
The old DTM 155 went to ALFA heaven some years ago...
...my new DTM might no have the decals on but will look much more like the '93 DTM 155.
