Knee Deep in 166s!
Just back from a few days in Roma and, let me tell you, there is no shortage of 166s - or any other Alfa - there! I literally saw more in a matter of hours than I've seen in total in the UK and in Germany over the past few years! Whilst there are some BMWs and Mercedes, it is refreshing to see all the Alfas and Lancias driving around, not to mention Maseratis.
The 159 (including the 200 PS JTD) is used by the police, as are unmarked 166s and Lancia Thesis's. Whilst taking the photo below, the policeman came over and I thought I was going to be told I should stop taking photos. But, no, he just wanted to talk about the car and how good it was! Somehow, I can't imagine that in the UK...

Everybody stay calm. Don't panic. It's just the end of the world. It'll be all right, as long as we all keep chanting.
