Hello from New Zealand

Post by muirallie » Wed May 13, 2015 10:58 am

Hi I'm Alistair

Ive been on here for a couple of months and though it was time to say hello and post photos of the 164 I found by accident. I found this car by chance on an auction website here in New Zealand. I was looking for a car with a tow ball.

She had been parked up for four years I was told. And was previously owned by the Alfa Romeo Club president NZ at some point. So not surprised that it has been looked after well in the past..Has taken a month of reading on here and back under hood and around fuel system to finally get her running without any hiccups. All I can say is I'm a fan now and love this car, they drive so quick and solid on the road. To top it off they sound better than an Aussie V8. Probably won't be using it to tow things, too good for that !

I'm in Browns Bay Auckland if any locals read this and want to share any parts and knowledge.

Cheers to all the 164 owners out there.

Hi Allie, welcome to the site. I spent some time in NZ (Auckland) and noticed that there are quite a few petrolheads out there with a passion for weekend racing. Great food too.

And yes, it's too good for towing; good reason to remove the tow bar in my opinion and enjoy even more the most beautiful automotive bum (for a 4-door) of the last century.
