It’s Easter, and even though the temperature is still around zero and roads are sometimes being gritted, I can’t put-off getting the Alfa out of the garage – it’s been 6 months since it was put away, just after we came back from Goodwood Revival 2012. It’s surprising just how much dust and dirt accumulates in 6 months, something that is made worse by the garage roof leaking slightly.

So the Alfa will need a good wash, polish and vacuum, then the dreaded MOT. At least when the Tax expires in April it doesn’t cost anything, courtesy of the DVLA’s Historic Vehicle scheme (any car first registered before 1973 is zero-cost road tax – in the recent budget that will extend to pre-1974 next year).
