What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo and…
….do you think it’s fundamental to own one to have the passion?


my dad has had a few Alfas in the past, and they stuck with me and no i dont think it is fundemental to own one to have the passion

Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one?

i have been in a few clubs in the past, RSOC, Triumph and never really got much out of it by being a member


What do you like most about Alfas?

For a start the cars are different from the "run of the mill" and they put a smile on my face everytime i get in her and start her up.


What do you like least about Alfas?

nothing yet !!


What would be your dream cars?

The Delta HF Integrale EVO 11 Giallo !! maybe one day


What car would you least like to drive?

anything made by vauxhall


For you, what’s the most popular thread on AO?

anything in way off topic


What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)?

Destination - driving down to Narjac, south of france, where we have a property
Passenger - should say my wife, but would also enjoy the company of say...Dave Gilmore
Driving music - anything by Pink Floyd


Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us?

coming back from spa, after watching F1, in the back of my mates capri with his missus in the passenger seat, my
stomach started to rumble, the tortoise showed his nose and before i knew it i had a desposited a "richard the third"
in my pants and held it for 2 hours until we got to ostend..they didnt even know !! i blame the belgium mayonasse and chips


What interests do you have outside of Alfas?

love football and support West Ham, enjoy getting out and about in the caravan, pub quiz and general socialising
with friends and family


Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc)

once appeared on jim "ll fix it


Do you have a party trick? If so what is it?

i can touch the bottom of an empty beer glass..limp..yeah u know what i mean


What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or people?

very friendly, great help and advice and most important of all..you can have a laugh


If you had £50,000 you had to spend in 72 hours, how would you choose to spend it?

birds, drugs and rock n roll

hope you enjoy
