Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?
What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo andÖ
Ö do you think itís fundamental to own one to have the passion?
At the age of 14, my dad had a 164 as a loaned company car witch I liked very much. During that same time, my dad brought a brand new Fiat Punto for my mum, the garage they got it from at the time was a Fiat/Alfa Romeo dealer, my love started when I was drooling at the brand new 145s,155 and 164 which were available at the time finding myself I want to own one some day.
As time went by, I went thought school, passed my driving test and didnít really think about them at the time until I came across my 155, admittedly I did have my doubts cause of the reputation people seem to think they had, I thoughts soon changed once test drove it! Iíll never forget day and itís never missed a beat.
What do you like most about Alfas?
The ride, handling, style and most of all the badge
What do you like least about Alfas?
I find the off set number look abit tacky but! Its something Iíll get use to
What would be your dream cars?
Lets say if I was to win the lottery, I wouldnít go out and buy a stereo typical car that a footballer drives, I would definitely keep my 155 and buy a brand new top spec Alfa Romeo and I suppose Iíd had to buy a maserati

Anything that you find barried up on max power magazines

What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)?
I would like to take my 155 on a track to she how she copes but then I do like going on organised Alfa drives too especially an organised 155 meet! You should see how many heads that turns
Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us?
There was at time a few years ago when I was in my old works astra van, I was on the outside lane overtaking a few other vehicles then some idiot in a gold bmw came up my ass and started flashing his light to say I want to pass, so than I start with the hand gestures and shooting verbal abuse toward him, after all I was going quite some speed myself, anyway as soon as the 1st lane was free, I changed back and he just shot passed me. 10 mins down the line, I saw him parked up in a lay-by accompanied by a cop, u can wonder why, and I saw that he could see me laughing at him
What interests do you have outside of Alfas?
Well, its not my job thatís for sure
