which cars do you drive and why?

Fiat Seicento Sporting Abarth with loads spent on it including Punto engine transplant - It was the first non-banger I bought and Ican't part with it even if I wanted to and its great fun to drive and fookin fast!
Alfa 147 2.0TS Lusso Selespeed 3dr in silver - Its a beautiful car to look at and drive. What more can I say

Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?

I would say no. I do have a very large soft spot for them but in general, Italian cars overall, I am very passionate about.

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


I remember the first adverts on telly for the 156 when it first came out and I loved it. The 156 went on my wish list from that point. Then the 147 came out and I loved it even more. It is also slightly more practical for me (the pram wont go through the boot opening on a 156 4dr! lol)

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

I will be very soon when I get round to it and do some reasearch in to the clubs about.

What do you like most about Alfas?

Their unique styling which is so quirky yet graceful and agressive yet charming.


What do you like least about Alfas?

My rattly variator!!! lol

What would be your dream cars?

I dont ask for much, Alfa GT, Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo, Escort mk2 2.0 rwd 3dr, 205 1.9 GTi

What car would you least like to drive?

A Citroen. Driven quite a few when they come in on p/x at work. Not a big fan of them at all.

What interests do you have outside of Alfas?

Clubcento - The UK's Cinquecento and Seicento owners club, beer, whisky and White Water Kayaking.

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

I'm a trained Open Top Bus Tour Guide

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

I'm only new, so im not sure yet. Seems really welcoming place so far though.

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

I'd go on ebay, search by all catagories, and just go down the HUGE list and buy what I want as I see it.

Its not too bad. I think all cars have their niggles though. I have managed to build myself quite a decent valued custmer base though

How come you don't have a Ford, wouldn't you get a discount?

Few enough working for Ford take the discount. Fair play Gaz, Henry Ford thought a lot of AR, and his descendants tried very hard to buy it....
