Thanks Pep. What a treat!

I'll try and dig up some photos of my girls but they were just street cars. Probably going to have to scan the prints so depends if the quality comes up whether I'll post them or not.

Meantime, talk about our good mate Paul Edwards, I found his Berlina. Just the go for the Alpine Chapter !!

Pep and MD fantastic pics, will try to get some pics up of both my old Berl and some other ones.  But for sure we love our Joolies, as you know. 

I am working on a different computer (laptop) at work and for some reason can't access my other photos at the moment, which must be stored on the hard-drive on the desktop.  Something to do with a little accident at Hotham a couple of weeks back (broken right leg)  :(, and a missed out on ski trip and need to have my leg elevated.

Pep, shame about the fantastic looking bird, but at least she had good taste in the Berl, if not you  ;D ;D.  No worries you can have the red one, which does look fantastic BTW.

Geez Derek, the guy driving the red one must have had to sit on a slab of Fourex to see over the dashboard !  ::)

Check out where the sun visor banner comes down to on the windscreen.

Hey NigelC,

The tweed jacket, leather elbow pads, beret wearing, budgie smuggler camaraderie salute you.

That indeed is a fine Alfa.

However there is nothing more humbling than being overtaken by a four door box now and then.. Keep a sharp eye out lest you sample some humble pie ;D

It's what I live for.  I find GTV6 drivers get pretty annoyed, but not as much as Porsche drivers.    :D

i maintain that sheldon's 90 was much quicker into turn one than several more exotic machines at PI a few years back.  i was standing on the inside of the corner and he kept it flat far longer...though his top speed may have been a little less than the GT3 lol

Evan,

I do believe that Sheldon does have an aeronautical plan and that you are a very close. I think he calls the device ,Winginit but you know the quality of some mobile phones calls..

Anyhow, I see you too have been sucked into the magical vortex of the four door charisma  :D
