Re: Broom Yellow HLX

So the story continues! What wheels is she riding on now? I always thought the originals were the nicest but seem to remember one got damaged?

Any chance of a thread for the Alfa in the "Members Motors - non-Fiat" section? It looks really nice but there's always the danger that if it gets a thread you'll start a succession of rebuilds and upgrades all over again...

Re: Broom Yellow HLX

Well.

Hmmmm...

Errrrmmmm...

Right. I took the Bravo darn sarf to deliver the Bangle Grinders. She's back on the OZ's for the time being. Popped in to visit the Cinquecento chap on the way through to Norwich way to look at an MX5 I almost bought in February.

I've sold the Alfa as I no longer need a comfy commuter car as my job has been extended another month I'm not being made redundant so the new job is on hold. The company the new job was for is now for sale so I can't imagine that would have lasted long anyway. Lucky escape potentially.
Anyway I've used the money from the Alfa to buy the MX5 and the Cinquecento chap fell in love with my Bravo and the swap is back on.

For now.

Re: Broom Yellow HLX

And what's the next Fiat then? I'm sure I remember you saying about another yellow Fiat being on its way?

Re: Broom Yellow HLX

A mildly scarred, low mileage low owner Cinquecento Sporting with no sunroof that also had sticky brakes so I came back home in my Bravo again.

Re: Broom Yellow HLX

I've been a bit quiet this week. Silence is golden right?

The Bravo have been continuing daily driver duties above and beyond expectations.

Collecting Dad from hospital and taking a fridge freezer to my sisters because it wouldn't fit in her Land Rover.

The local kids had let my tyres down again and as I inflated them at the petrol station I did a good deed having noticed a biker had a slightly flat rear I gave the air line to him to sort it just before a torrent of rain.

In other news.





I have raised the suspension on my MX5 by 20mm and defused the sticker bomb. It almost looks like a car now.

Just waiting for the "Next Day" delivery wheels to arrive (from Tuesday) so I can get rid of the Stancy Pants stretched tyres ones.

Re: Broom Yellow HLX

I assume you didn't buy the Cinquecento in the end then?

Not yet. Lucky I didn't I can't imagine getting the fridge freezer in the MX5 would have been as fun.
