I'm from Johannesburg in South Africa and I have been an Alfa romeo fan since the first 156 was released. My friend's dad bought a white twin spark and I immediately wanted one.
I have been through quite a few cars but the Alfa's remain my favourite. I now own a red 2002 156 2.5 and a 1973 Berlina 2000. I'm loving the 156 but the Berlina is a complete new experience. This little classic was in a terrible state and is now in the process of being restored. It's stripped down to the floor and just came back from the panelbeater. It used to be a dark blue but it is now a gloss black.
I'll post some pictures of the project.
