What cars do you drive and why?
1972 Giulia Super 1300, why? Drive one and let your senses tell you why.
Would you describe yourself as passionate about Alfa Romeo?
Yes, This is my third car and all have been Alfas. I visit AO nearly daily, I take part in organised Giulia Tours, etc.etc.
What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo and…
… do you think it’s fundamental to own one to have the passion?
My brother started his car career with a 33 1.3 in red. That was probably the start of my Alfaddiction ..
.. It's not fundamental, but it sure helps. Otherwise you look like the boy who loves the beauty of the school from a far far away
What do you like most about Alfas?
Engine, handling and looks!
What do you like least about Alfas?
Cracks, squeaks and the risk of car failure whilst driving
What would be your dream cars?
A Montreal (in fact 2, one for spare parts
A GT Junior with the Step Front nose will do until then.
What car would you least like to own?
A Merc C class estate. Looks like a hearse
In your opinion, what is the most popular thread on AO?
Not one in particular. I could say the ones with Hugo (throttleman) in them, but that would mean every thread
Do you remember your first post on AO, and if so, what was it about?
In December 2004. A thread about what my first car was (a 33 1.7 i.e.)
What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)?
In late summer with my girl on our way to the Italian Riviera. No music (don't have a system on board). Just the engine revving as we curve over the Swiss Alps
Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us?
After his car won me over, I, to p!ss my younger brother off, bought a similar 33, but with a 1.7 instead of his 1.3 engine.
What interests do you have outside of Alfas?
, Golf, snooker, literature, family, and I take a great interest in my girlfriend
Tell us something nobody knows about you. (e.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc)
I don't want to spoil the surprise when someone actually found this out, because of some stupid thing I say…
What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or posts you wish to share?
Best thing about AO is the humour. Not all threads are Alfa related, there is plenty of room to make fun of others and yourself. As long as it’s fair and don't forget the emoticons!!
