I work for a logistics company designing networks for prospective and existing customers (it’s trucks and warehouses basically).
which cars do you drive and why?
1999 Alfa Romeo GTV 2.0 Twin Spark – I got this car because I have ALWAYS wanted one. I can remember reading about them in the car magazines when they were launched. I was about 15 or 16 and said that I would have one of those one day…
Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?
I’ve been into cars since I was old enough to walk and I love lots of different cars for lots of reasons. There is something about Alfas though and now that I’ve got one I can only see my love growing stronger!!
What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo and…
….do you think it’s fundamental to own one to have the passion?
Beautiful cars that I lusted after and were renowned as being an enthusiasts car are two of the things that got me started. Then I sat in one, saw the three dials pointing at me from the centre console and I was sold
I can’t believe that anyone could own one and not get the passion for it...
Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one?
I will do, I just haven’t got around to it yet.
What do you like most about Alfas?
I like the feeling of satisfaction that being in my Alfa provides and I like the fact that everybody else seems to like it too. It's lush
What do you like least about Alfas?
It’s got to be the poor reputation for reliability. Everyone keeps asking “Has it broken down yet?” and it’s making me nervous...I hope my GTV doesn’t prove them right.
What would be your dream cars?
This could be a very long list…however, I think at the moment the only way that I could improve on my GTV as a daily driver would be a Brera. They are just absolutely stunning.
What car would you least like to drive?
I enjoy driving most everything – I just like being behind the wheel but my least favourite driving experiences have been behind the wheel of MPVs such as Renault Scenics etc.
What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)?
I would love to do a tour of Italy with the love of my life in the passenger seat and an eclectic selection of music to choose from. Free petrol would be nice too...
Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us?
Not without rambling on…
What interests do you have outside of Alfas?
Cars, F1, Music, Photography, being sociable etc etc
Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc)
When I was at school I worked on the till at Waitrose and once served Ruby Wax. Unfortunately I didn’t recognise her and it was only when everyone commented after she’d left that I realized
Do you have a party trick? If so what is it?
Nothing that translates into the written word.
What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or people?
I’m fairly new to it but you all seem to be a very friendly, helpful bunch
