Thanks everyone for voting for me
I think their is a mistake.....Swanny beat me by one vote!
ps.Not too sure if having "Winner of Other Marques Car of the Year" in my title at a Alfa Romeo site is a good thing or not!

Re: AO Other Marques Car of the Year 2008: Winner

Truly a beautiful classic, where I used to work we had a proof reader come to work for us who had one and she'd bought it new back in the day, by that time it was absolutely battered, rusty and a bit of a mess, but underneath it all it was STILL beautiful.

This would be in my dream stable

Thanks,this car is a bit of a wolf in sheepsclothing.The engine is modified,bored-out and running on Webers.The old VW gearboxes are bullet proof theirfore it can handle the large amount of power.The car and engine looks stock,only give-away is the two exhausts and Porsche like sound.Many BMW and modern makes have been left behind(I don't do this often).The biscuit tyres can't cope with the amount of torque theirfore I have to use 3rd gear to pull off.
