Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?
The fact that my alfa's running costs over the last year have equalled the cars worth, shows im either passionate or off my rocker. Not quiet as hardcore as some of the nuts on here.
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 the 156's, pre or post face lift. They came out when I was in my teens and I swore that I would have one as my first car. Eight cars later I finally grew the balls to buy one. I think it is necessary to have at least owned one to have gained the passion. I have never owned a car longer than 6 months, other than the Alfa which i have had for a year and there is no reason why ill be changing any time soon. Must be a reason why.
Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one?
Maybe, depends if i get a discount
What do you like most about Alfas?
Their looks, the 156 is just a four door saloon, but why can it look so damn good and always stand out in a crowd of fords/audi's and bmw's. This has nothing to do with the 156 being the one with the bonnet open. Love the fact that I always have to look back at it after parking up.
What do you like least about Alfas?
Costs so far, Interior rattles. Both would have been the same with any car of this age.
What would be your dream cars?
Mint Mk1 Golf GTI, BMW 840 coupe,
What car would you least like to drive?
The bloody Fiat scumpy (scudo) van I have been baby sitting all week, not only does it burn the wrong fuel but the build quality is shocking.
For you, what’s the most popular thread on AO?
The great petrol vs diesel debate of 2008, Im still scared.

What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)?
nurburgring, the wife, Nine Inch Nails' discography
(no jokes about taking my wife around the ring please
Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us?
Not Alfa related, although the state of my bank account is humorous and that is Alfa related. I once had to call the RAC out twice in one day, firstly on the way to chester zoo, I managed to run out of deasal in a Mk1 Cilo I had at the time, RAC saved the day only for me to have to call them again about twenty mins later as I had locked my keys in the car at the zoo. Same bloke sorted it as well.
What interests do you have outside of Alfas?
Geeking, buying far to many gadgets, trying to teach my 1 year old son that not everything and everyone is called "dada"
Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc)
My life is a open book, however I got hammered once when I was at uni and fell in a bush just after I had p1ssed in it. Nice.
Do you have a party trick? If so what is it?
When I crack my neck its really loud.
