Reasonably popular. The 156 (launched in 1998) really gave a hige boost to the marque, and a lot more is expected when the 147 is launched at the end of this year. A few hard-core enthusiats (like myself!!) are working to set up an Alfa Romeo Club in UAE by the end of this year. Unfortunately, car owners in this market are not known to preserve history. As a result, we don't see too many vintage Alfas on the roads in Dubai. What's it like in Israel?
