Looky Looky Somebody complimented my Alfa today!

I've been driving my 156 for a year, and nobody had complimented her .... ..... until today! I decided to check the oil, when this Brazilian guy came up to me, and said something along the lines of:

That's a nice car ... I like the engine! . You know, Alfas are not cheap to maintain, but they are performance cars, so you forget about the bills when you drive her
He wasn't an Alfa owner, but he has impeccable taste! .

Re: Somebody complimented my Alfa today!

Do you know, the same thing just happened to me? I was in a queue for the lights and a fellah on a Vespa pulled to the offside and gestured for me to lower the window. I thought he was going to tell me I had a brake-light out or something (the very idea! Bulb gone? On an Alfa? T'cha!)

But no, he very politely asked how much I paid and that it was absolutely beautiful and was it quick? And since I was on the return journey from that VERY splendid chap Adie at AH Motorsports who had just done some exceptional work on her, I could say with all honesty incredibly, unbelievably and outstandingly good value for money-ly, she was! [1]

It's going to take some getting used to, that horizon-winch pedal!

[1] I might not have said all this at the time but I am now!
