And then there's 'hollywood' - another one who has recently discovered full throttle !!

The repairs are..........how do you say............being attended to in due course........what a bummer !!

Hi len105, I always knew about WOT(wide open throttle). But didn't realize that an Alfetta is amuch better
handling car than a 105, until you pointed it out to me in the esses at Oran last weekend . Is your 105 at Tony
Palace's?. Cheers Hollywood

As I mentioned previously Mr Hollywood, the Alfetta is such a better balanced chassis & therefore a better handling unit, than the much older technology 105's etc .......

Dr Tony will be offering his opinion on how to fix 'the hole at the front' soonest..........

Hi Len105, I recently heard about your Oran Park experience.....sorry to hear, hope it gets back to it's former glory soon.  As for the handling debate, there is nothing quite like the rear end handling of a 105....I love it (and miss it!)

Cheers,
