Thumbs Up John Peel - 147 owner

Did anyone read the "Me and My Motors" article in the Sunday Times featuring legendary DJ John Peel? Apparently he's an Alfa 147 owner, and I quote:

"Parked outside his farmhouse is what he calls his day car, an Alfa 147 which he cheerily admits is too sporty for a man in his sixties but which he explains with reference to Dylan Thomas: Im just an old man raging against the dying of the light. "

I always knew he had taste.

Well I do not see the problem that this person is seeing.
Alfa's are that class of car that no matter what your Age you are, look good driving one

Of course, it goes without saying that you told him about AlfaOwner too. Isn't that right?

Re: John Peel - 147 owner

Maybe he's already here under a mystery username

John Peel isn't enough
In the early 90's, Pete Tong played Hardcore
When it was "The right speed"
Seb plays House
Lottie plays House
Judge plays Housey Trance
Fergie won't even venture past 145 BPM
So who will support Hard Dance?
Surprisingly, the most adventurous is Drive Time Dave Pearce
Playing Old Skool and Hard Trance on a Sunday night
And beyond adventurous is John Peel
The only hope of a kick-drum lead track above 150 BPM
John Peel is not enough.
