The Perfect 3 Car Garage

Bye bye little red pocket rocket!

With just 3,300 miles on the clock she is off into long term storage and care. Let’s see what she is worth in 10-15 years time?

Three Car Italian Garage

Just finished de-weeding the drive and laying new gravel ready for the Alpine’s arrival in a couple of months. Took the chance to grab a picture of a very stylish all Italian three car garage going from big to small.

Out & About

Collecting a few pictures for the memory bank. I love this car! Its very special but too compromised to use as a daily. Its a trackday and Sunday morning special.

Frog Green

Loving the colour and the rear wing. Just need to go to Germany to get this done by Pogear Racing.

Not One BUT Two Alfa’s on the Drive ;-)

I think I might have caught Alfaitis! Both Alfa red, silver wheeled with yellow brakes.

Every Car Has Two Sides

Alfa Romeo 4C

Fell in love with this car in 2011 when Alfa unvalid the original concept, remember standing at Goodwood Festival of Speed on their stand for about 40 minutes just looking. Have now managed to secure an order (waiting list currently stands at 2 years) mine will arrive in June 2015 (long story). It will be a 2015 model which means fared in headlights and fingers crossed the new centrally mounted Akrapovic sports exhaust (recently shown on the Spider concept). Options include 19″ wheels, Rosso Competizone paint, full leather, race pack (includes, race tyres, race suspension, sports steering wheel and stiffer anti roll bars front and rear), black roof and sports exhaust. Excited not the word!

What Does Not Kill You, Makes You Stronger

So it has been a few years since I have had the heart to post on this blog. Sadly I lost a business back at the end of 2012, this had a profound effect on both my professional life and my personal life. Refusing to let the actions of certain individuals beat me I have rebuilt the business (which is now better, stronger and more successful), overcome a mental breakdown and rebuilt both myself esteem and self belief. As part of that process I managed to scrap together the deposit for a Alfa 4C, not really knowing if I was going to be able to go through with the purchase, this acted as a beacon and drove me on. I also have to thank my good friend Brian for being so understanding when we had to sell the Lotus Elise we co-owned as I needed every penny I could get to survive in those dark moments. Finally I feel that the time has come to pick up the story and see if I did manage to get my hands on that Alfa…
