New member. Infected with ALFA-ness!!
I have to say that I find it slightly amusing that I am here at all. I have, in the past, been the least likely person to join any affiliated club or association to do with cars. Ive been around the block with cars owning some crazy things. Porche, Supras, Suburu etc etc. And never really been happy fully with anything.
Recently, I bought, on a whim, and without any real forethought, an Alfa Romeo 156 2.5 V6.
Ive always looked at Alfas and thought, nice but mmmmm?!
After test driving the car for less than a mile I actually said out loud "why the hell havent I had one of these before?" From there, I had to have it. And it has gotten way way worse.
This is the first car I have banned smoking in. It is the first car that I dont get bated to race people in, because I dont see the point. Its the first car that I have ever meticulously cleaned every day. For some reason I have become infected by it!! It has captured my affection. And it is perfect.
So here I am. Like some kind of addict. Head held low in shame for what has become of my life. Yet if you look closely, there is a wry smile because I know Im going to drive her later!!! The engine noise alone would keep me satisfied for life. I dont know what more to say. It could be a ferarri and I wouldnt love it more.
What the hell is the matter with me?!?!
