which cars do you drive and why?
Alfa Romeo GTV – my daily 70 mile drive
Citroen Xsara estate, for when I have got the dog and the little girl with me
Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?
well, I’ve spent more than the purchase cost of the GTV making it exactly how I want it, in the space of 3 months, so I think you could say yes!
What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo and…
….do you think it’s fundamental to own one to have the passion?
My passion for Alfa Romeo started the first time I saw a GTV. The lines of it, and the headlights just made it such a gorgeous car to look at. Recently my sister in law bought a GT and I had a ride in it. The interior styling just jump started my desire to get one for myself. I don’t think you have to own one, but I think you have to have OWNED one at some point to appreciate the alfisti way.
