I am a passionate car enthusiast in the Bay Area, CA. I have been dedicated to classic Mercedes-Benz cars for their timeless design, rock solid build, and enduring personality that has never let me down.
However, I have had the desire to purchase an Alfa Romeo for years... their rarity in the U.S. makes finding a clean well cared for example challenging to say the least! But alas, I have taken the dive after finding a near mint Milano Verde.
I also own a 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300D Turbodiesel sedan that I will never part with. Lots of love has gone into that car, and I hope to see the same amount go into the Milano.
My father moved to the states in his late 20's from Italy. I still go back to see my family almost every year. Many of them are Alfa owners, and now I can say the same. My father drove a 1995 164LS for a few years after purchasing the car new in San Francisco. Needless to say, I fell in love with that car instantly!
What would my dream car be?
147 1.9 JTDM 16V Lusso 5-Door equipped with the Special Edition 147ti wheels. Alfa Red.
I guess I can dream on.... Alfa Romeo, please come back to the U.S.!!!!
I love my Milano.
I look forward to learning more about these cars and meeting new people through alfaowner.com!
