Hi from Croatia.

I've been in love in Alfa 145 since I was a kid. In 2002 i bought one for my self and it was all a young boy ( 20 years then ) could ever dream. I was loving it and it was a wonderful car. She was a 2000 year model with 1.4 twinspark. She was low, she was loud, she was fun.

As the years gone by I've got married and got a child and the Alfa had to go. I sold it in 2007 to a another young boy who promised to take care of it. As we later found out the promise was bad.

This is a pic of Alfa in 2006

Since then I have owned Alfa 147/156/GT and now I own an Alfa 159 SW jtdm. I have been in love in every of my Alfa but always remeberd my old 145. And then in a year 2013 I've decided I want it back.

It was not a problem to find it. She laid in some garden under a tree for almost a year since the last owner bought himself a Golf V gti and did not care for her anymore. She was broken, attacked by corrosion, bumped in a side, left to die...

In the fall od 2013 Alfa was back home. Me and my friend mecanic for Alfas put it in a garage ( first she seen in 6 years ) and the work started. The idea was to bring her back in the shape she vas in early years of her youth...

Always in life, when I start something... I never give up...

So the body of my alfa was first to be saved.
Floor, engine bay, everything under the car was replaced... Everything!

While we were saveing the body of my 145, on the parking near by came a Fiat Marea 2.0 20v HLX. She was to be scrapped for parts in due time... And my little twinspark was out of the car an in bad condition after a 250.000 km. So we came to an idea..

Why not make a five cylinder n/a Alfa... Just for the sound and extra 50 bhp...

And so it has began... smile.gif
