Re: My 75 on Top Gear
I saw KA's car on ebay.
Still green but mechanically more sound that TG left it at the end of the program.
Not sure how much the Alfa made but he was looking for around £1,000.
Mr Clarkson wrecks and slates a lot of cars but he has always maintained that he is an Alfa fan.
Although they appeared to trash all the Alfa's in that episode I do know that most of it is done for the viewers entertainment as opposed to hatred for the vehicles themselves.
Jeremy even at the end of the clip said that had they done the tasks in anything other than an Alfa they would have just driven across the midlands. Instead it was a journey of many emotions, friendships and delight.
Judging by the AO community I can agree wholeheartedly agree to that.
And as Jeremy also claimed at the end of the clip. "You can only get to petrol head heaven in an Alfa" To have someone say this that has driven so many vehicles for so many years has got to tell you something.
Alfa Romeos get under your skin. The way they look, the way they drive whatever the reason. Once they are. Nothing! will be able to remove it.
A shame that they had to go to extremes and paint a beautiful car in such a hideous colour but I don't think it was detrimental to the Alfa name. If anything I think it showed that an Alfa has some harsh critics but if the main petrol heads who are always in the UK media love them,then others would show the name more respect also.
