Dear Marcel 034, - & other new friends.....
Greetings to you Marcel from rural England! I am glad that you like the photos where I live amongst the beautiful South Northamptonshire countryside. It is very peaceful here......only about 200 people live in my small village! (Even so, we are only about 65 miles from London, & 60 miles from Birmingham!....people 'commute' to both of these places every day by train to get to their work!).
The colour of my 166 is, in English, "ALPHA RED", "Rosso" in Italian. Maybe this is rare in Holland, but I have seen quite a lot of Alfa Romeo's in the U.K. in this colour, - & not just 166's. This colour is very popular in the U.K, as to the English "bright red" means 'Italian Cars!". (Just like "Racing-Green" used to be typical of English Sports cars). Headlamp Washers on my car have never worked! I have not bothered to get them fixed-being 'mean' with my precious money! As far as I know, my headlights are the 'original' !Xenon".

To all Dutch 166 friends:
Should any of you visit the U.K to attend the "Grand Prix" at SILVERSTONE U.K, this summer, I am here, & may be able to send you addresses of where to stay....please contact me! Be very nice to meet you at our village Pub at ABTHORPE (opposite my house!)only 3 miles from the circuit
to enjoy a traditional English Pint together!

Regarding a "big" Dutch / Belgian/ English
'get-together' / "big Meet", this, for me, would have to be in either 2009 OR 2010, as I am personaly fully committed for this year, 2008. (My Son is getting married this year, so I am somewhat without finance for Alfa Events!).

All good Alfa Wishes to the Netherlands,

Sincerely,

GUY. (England).

There is a tech section for 166 owners on AlfaOwner.com with more than 50 active forum members who have a 166.

Dear Marcel 174.
I can put pictures of your cars on my 166 Notes section which is called "Registro Ricambi" in the U.K AROC Magazine - from time to time, under a heading: "Netherlands News".
Just send me what you would like to see & I will do my best!
E-Mail items to:

Best regards, GUY in England.

Dear new friends in the Netherlands, I am just giving you all NEWS of a VERY important ITALIAN CAR EVENT here in ENGLAND......on SUNDAY, JUNE 1st.
It is called "AUTO ITALIA-(U.K Magazine of the same name)-ITALIAN CAR CONCOURS", & IS BEING HELD AT "STANFORD HALL" at CRICK, SOUTHERN LEICESTERSHIRE.("Stanford Hall" is a very grand typical English 'Stately Home'). You can pay the Entry Fee, (£10 per car), upon arrival. For fuller details please see the U.K "AROC" Website, & also www.auto-italia.co.uk
This will be a SPECTACULAR EVENT!
It includes the "MASERATI CLUB annual concours"; PLUS the "ALFA ROMEO U.K OWNERS CLUB's NATIONAL CONCOURS"...... There will also be large gatherings of LANCIAS, FIAT, & LAMBORGHINIS. THE FERRARI OWNERS CLUB will be having their 'NATIONAL CONCOURS'.
For opening hours / time, PLEASE REFER TO EITHER "AROC" OR "AUTO ITALIA" websites.
I shall be there.....I could enjoy the pleasure of meeting some of you! I am hoping that the U.K AROC 166 Section may be given a 'parking-area', but not sure yet.
With best wishes,
GUY.(England).

ROUTE TO "STANFORD HALL!"
Go North on Motorway M1 and EXIT at JUNCTION 19......JOIN ROAD No.A14... Go only a few kMS / miles, AND turn-off at SIGNPOST for: STANFORD-ON-AVON on your LEFT.....then follow signs for "STANFORD HALL".

Re: GREETINGS FROM GUY IN ENGLAND!


On june 1st a bunch of us is all ready occupied on the Nürburgring Guy.
We do have a meeting over there. But there aren't to many members comming to the NordSchleiffe so perhaps anyone's interested?!

Keep them comming, those great events. And who nows, sometime, nearby?

Comming monday, May the 12e whe are at the circuit of Assen. There is also a great Italian meeting. That's called "Viva Italia" and everything from Italy is then over there.
A yearly event by the way so perhaps next year we can welcome you and some members of the AROC at the paddock?
Here also Ferrari, Maserati, DiTomasso, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia, Lamborghini etc. but also bikes from Italy will display thereselves on the paddock and a lot of them wil show what they can do on the circuit. A lot of our members will be seen on the track also, not at the same time as the "supercars" but whe are on the track!!

It is, as said, a yearly event, since the 166 club was founded we did show up there every year so I believe I can savely say that 2009 will be oure 5th anyversary on Assen!
Your most welcome than over there!
And I think that the Auto Italia-Italian Car Concours is also held every year?
Than it is maybe an idea to let us know a bit sooner so that we can arrange us comming over to the UK! I personally would like that, thats for sure!

Re: GREETINGS FROM GUY IN ENGLAND!


Dear Guy,

Good to see you here at our forum! Let me introduce myself, my name is Pieter Gordon ( yes, roots are back in Scotland) and I used to work at an Alfa Romeo dealership called Auto Aalbers in Oosterbeek from 1997 onwards early 2003 and I have sold over 1100 Alfa's into the U.K., mainly bought by private customers but also through dealers like Monza Sport ( Ashington West Sussex ) , AlfaLink (London) Mangoletsi (noticed there sticker on your car ! ) and many others. I also used to be an AROC member those days. For this, I have been traveling arround the UK many times, visiting car import exhibitions in Manchester and of course, Sandown Park in Esher Surrey. Still got friends in Leatherhead ( Surrey) , Southampton en Rochester (Kent) .
Well, I would be interested if there are members in the AROC who still own a car bought from our company !!!! I enjoyed doing the bussines with all those people in the UK.

Best Regards,

Pieter

Re: GREETINGS FROM GUY IN ENGLAND!


In case you are interested: on September 27, 2008 we will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of our beloved Alfa Romeo model, the 166. You're more than welcome to join us (if you want to fly in stead of bringing your own 166, we'll keep a passenger seat available for you)
