Put me down for this one Colin.

Should be a good chance to get the info on a 'future' Alfa purchase.

Just a note, it is near the old Essendon Airport aircraft hangers and terminal - that side of the airport anyway.

Cheers

With only about 4 days to go for the MiTo and new Guilieta technical night at Essendon Alfa Romeo, we are approaching the half full mark for bookings, come along and think of a good question to ask, Colin.

Thanks to all the club members who turned up for the night at Essendon Alfa Romeo, there were about 18 on the night, some came from far away as Bendigo, but not surprising, as they love our Marque up there, there was a Phillip Island Sprint on the next day, so the numbers were down a little, you can't really do the both events.
We started off looking at all the new cars, MiTo and Guilietta, and was given a heads up of what new models were coming and when, and what cars they were going to be based on, and oh, don't always trust the internet for all your information.
There was then a question and answer time with most wanting to know when the new models are going to be available.
Some of us made our way to the workshop so we could interigate the Service Manager about various aspects of Alfa Romeo ownership, and there was a Twin Clutch Transmission assembly on the  bench to look at, plus all the usual questions about Selenia oil, on one of the shelves i noticed a container of PENZOIL oil that had 'as used by Ferrari' printed on it, very strange Ferrari using Penzoil, as they have only used Shell and Agip oil in the past, but Penzoil is owned by Shell.
Essendon Alfa Romeo laid on some excellent nibbles for us in the form of Pizzas and pasta, what could be better eating good food and talking about Alfa Romeo's.
Thank you to the staff at Essendon Alfa Romeo for putting on the night and staying back late and most likely working the next day, the club members appreciated the effort, Colin.
