Still trying to find

3 years ago i was driving at 50mph down a country lane, going round a steady bend on a very rainy day, coming out of the corner my Black 1.8L 2001 156 started to 'snake' and loose control, the car veered off the road and took down two medium size trees, one hitting the car just behind the wheel arch the other on the back quater, the traffic officer said i de-rooted one of the trees, the passenger footwell was crushed soo bad that it was about a foot in length across, i had to climb out of the car upside down out of the rear window.
this was the most traumatic event of my life, my girlfriend who was in the passenger seat as the tree hit the car on her side survived with nothing but a flesh wound.
i thank the Alfa 156 for saving me and my girlfriends life as the car was unrecognisable after the crash, i currently own a silver 2.0L 156 and i feel more than safe as what i have been through.
i would show images, but i still find them upsetting to this day.
apologies to all that reads this, but the 156 has saved mine and my girlfriends life in a near fatal crash, which is why i bought another one!
