Its all about me....
Your Forum name
27 (old enough to know better but still young enough to get away with it!)
Somewhere in Bolton
Married to the best woman in the world.
Which cars do you drive and why?
Currently Honda Civic Type S GT (wanted a Type R but couldn’t afford it!!)
Will be taking delivery of a MiTo in about a week (can’t wait!)
Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?
Yes, I have been fascinated about the history of Alfa all my life and have finally decided to take the plunge and buy one!
What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo?
The history of Alfa’s, the heritage of the marque and the pedigree. The cars are also unique in looks!
Do you think it’s fundamental to own one to have the passion?
No, as above, you can be passionate about anything without owning it or being good at it
Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one?
I am a member of the Alfa Owners club already, I may look at the AROC too.
What do you like most about Alfas?
The noise generated by the engines. It is such a soundtrack
What do you like least about Alfas?
The single-minded and blinkered views of the masses who think that all Alfa’s have serious reliability issues. They really ought to “get with the program!”
What would be your dream cars?
An Alfa 8C
Maserati GranTurismo S
Ariel Atom (for weekends!!)
1968 Shelby Mustang
What car would you least like to drive?
Any that were Daewoo (now Chevrolet)
For you, what’s the most popular thread on AO?
I read pretty much everything on AO! I do like the Rant Room though!
What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)?
My house to the Nurburgring via the Portugal, Spain, South of France, Italy, through the Alps, Switzerland, Germany and back on the same route! My wife by my side and an endless supply of good old fashioned 70’s & 80’s Rock
Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us?
I once sat in the driver’s seat of my mate’s fiesta and fell through the floor!
What interests do you have outside of Alfas?
Football (come on the mighty ‘pool! Number 19 surely will be coming this year!), Playing pool, Music – play guitar and bass. Gaming (online PS3 id is Bumflaps – go on Add me! Just let me know you are from here!), cooking, cats and driving.
Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc)
That is something I would only tell my wife!
Do you have a party trick? If so what is it?
I can make balloon animals
What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or people?
I like the whole community feeling there is and knowing that there are other people who have the same passion.
If you had £50,000 you had to spend in 72 hours, how would you choose to spend it?
I would give it to my wife to do whatever she wanted.
"We came, we saw, we kicked its a**!"
"I haven't failed at anything, I have just found 10,000 ways of not doing something."
