which cars do you drive and why? Alfa 147 1.6 lusso, because I loved The looks of it from the first time I saw it! Oh and they are a bargain second hand!
Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo? Yes, but only since buying my 147 (and joining AO).
What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo and…
….do you think it’s fundamental to own one to have the passion? Was looking to buy a 147 and a friend pointed me towards a very friendly forum.
You don’t need to own one to love them though.
Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one? Would certainly consider it.
What do you like most about Alfas? Stylish looks, inside and out. Sporty reputation gave added sexyness.
What do you like least about Alfas? People who slag them off without every having owned or sat in one. Very narrow minded people out there.
What would be your dream cars? 8C spider, Mi.To GTA (hopefully).
What car would you least like to drive? Tata Nano. You just wouldn’t. Nuff said.
For you, what’s the most popular thread on AO?
What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)? The paying member story time as it keeps me entertained!
Everyone should post in the Board thread when-ever they can. They love newcomers.
A drive down the Californian coast would be good in a Spider. Sunset with the top down. A warm breeze blowing through my hairs.
Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us?
Not really. Only on my second car ever. Had a Mk1 punto, suppose that was funny in itself.
What interests do you have outside of Alfas? Mountain biking, Lager, Heavy metal and festivals (both beer and music).
Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc) I can wiggle my ears. I also have a head full of very random facts.
Do you have a party trick? If so what is it? Usually breaking things…..
What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or people? It’s a friendly place, is free advertising and have had lots of technical help.
If you had £50,000 you had to spend in 72 hours, how would you choose to spend it? Beer, lapdance, repeat till spent.
(What Would Jesus Drive?)
Are we nearly there yet?
