About time to say hi!
It's about time I said hi. I have had my 2001 156 for a year now but I have been an Italian car lover since the 80's. Started with the Delta, went to the Motor Show in London in the early 80's and fell in love with the Delta.
Ended up with a Fiat 131, a Fiat Strada, another 131. Moved onto a Lancia Trevi, but never owned the elusive Alfa. Always wanted a Sud, but it never happened. Had a BMW for 2 years and a guy at work kept nagging me to get an Alfa. He has a Fiat Barchetta and is Italian car mad. I finally took the plunge last January and although I have had a couple of issues recently, I love my Alfa.
I love the film, The Italian Job, not for the Mini's, but for the Alfa Police cars that chase them.
If I didn't have a wife and kids, I would have some gas guzzling V6 Alfa and attend plenty of Rallies, but I can dream..
