Falling in love with an Italian

Started out in life in a Ford Escort.

A couple of VW mk3 golf's preceeded my last car, a VW mk4 Golf.

Loved the German reliablity, engineering and solid feel.

No soul though.

Just got back yesterday with my Alfa 147. It's a little bit squeaky, needs a cambelt change and the sat nav was in Italian. Don't have the instruction manual, only got one key and it could do with new brakes shortly.

But it's lovely. Makes me smile every time I see it parked outside, drives superbly and has a glorious engine note. Sunny days, back roads, windows down, music playing. Finally I understand what it's like to drive a car with soul, which stirs passion in its owners. Couldn't be happier.

Re: Falling in love with an Italian

Glad to hear you've got a smile on your face - my GTV really caught me by the heart strings! I've been driving my mothers Nissan for the last few weeks - the GTV is with dad & not broken don't worry - and I can't wait to get it back so I can smile again when I drive!

Enjoy the experience!
