Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?
First time owner of an Alfa, but wanted one for years. Now i've got one, I'll probably never go back!
What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo and…
….do you think it’s fundamental to own one to have the passion?
Always loved them, but thought i might have to wait till 25 to get one. It was actually the Alfa touring car that got me into them in the first place. I think that they are the type of car where if you don't give it plenty of TLC it'll fail on you. Love it and care for it, and it'll bring you a smile every time you get behind the wheel.

Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us? When i first bought my alfa in london I stopped at service station to fill up on the way home. Then sat for half an hour (and nearly phoned breakdown) cos I forgot that I had to have my foot on the brake to engage first gear on the selespeed
