PHF - Every Petrol Head Needs to Own an Alfa Romeo - Reason #37

Need another reason to own an Alfa Romeo?  Check this out.....




And if you've just decided that you DO need to own an Alfetta GTV, just happens to be one for sale on trademe.co.nz......needs some TLC...and a turbo I would think.

Plenty of info on the web about Alfa's, so no excuses.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfa_Romeo_Alfetta

It's the Little Things that Count.


We all remember our first Santa Cruz or Ibis, it's one of those days you never forget.  The mix of anticipation , excitement and, of course, all the planning that has gone into it to make sure it's the bike you're looking for.....and will look after you for many years to come.

Now, I have never met John (the proud owner of the above Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon), but I know he's 54, lives in Timaru (John deals Darren G at bikeinc.co.nz), his previous bike weighted about 30lbs and he races the Contact Epic every year.

John and I had a few email conversations over the last month, quizzing me about the Santa Cruz range, he was still undecided between the Superlight29er, Tallboy Alloy or a Tallboy Carbon......and of course he had to sell off his old rig.....so that would influence his purchasing decision.

The last email I got from John simply said, "new toy, woohoo" and had the above picture attached to it.

Now there are a lot of perks to being a bike distributor (and believe it or not, it's not all beer and skittles), but this simple email made my week.

So a MASSIVE thanks and good luck to John for his next Contact Epic and if you happen to see John, thrashing his new Tallboy Carbon around, say 'Hi' from me.

PHF - Another Week, Another Car Show

Car/Driving shows, they really are the new black......anyhow, good to see Jerry Seinfeld's back in front of the camera for his new web series called 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee'.

Seinfeld is a real petrol head and does have a large car collection (how about 46 Porsche's?)



So that's good news for car and comedian (and possibly coffee?) fans, bad news seems to be that it's playing on crackle, which is unavailable in OUR region.

Hopefully they will replay the episodes on youtube or on comediansincarsgettingcoffee.com  website.
