Working for a bank (though not sure for how much longer
Married with 3 kids. One 4-year old boy and two one-year old boys (yep, twins).
which cars do you drive and why?
Nissan Murano, as upon relocating to Japan and getting two more kids at once, needed a cheap slugger that could fit three child seats at the back.
To be honest, itís actually a pretty decent drive and a good engine (detuned 350Z engine). I used to drive a 147 2.0 SS whilst living in London, which I loved.
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?
The passion started when my late brother got a 2 litre Spider many years ago. Beautiful car, saw happiness in his eyes whenever he drove it.
No, I donít think itís fundamental to own one to have the passion but it certainly helps. I do expect to be back in the ownersí fold soon.
Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one?
Yes I would consider it but not here in Japan as I donít speak the local lingo.
What do you like most about Alfas?
The handling, the style and the engines.
What do you like least about Alfas?
When I lived in the UK, I must say the dealer network. If I owned one here in Japan, where Alfa dealers seem top notch, Iíd say nothing!
What would be your dream cars?
The original Italdesign-made Brera. I loved the interiors (beside everything else)!
What car would you least like to drive?
South Korean cars
For you, whatís the most popular thread on AO?
The Alfa Wave one.
What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)?
A drive at dawn around the centre of Rome, by the Colosseum, Forum, St Peterís, etc.
Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us?
Got chased by the men in blue once and managed to get away. But probably not something I should be sharing on this forum (plus, it wasnít me doing the driving!)
What interests do you have outside of Alfas?
Football & F1, current affairs, history.
Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc)
When I was 5-6 years old I appeared in a few movies. Even got to speak in one.
Do you have a party trick? If so what is it?
Used to be able to burp 20 times plus in a row, without any help (no coca cola, etc). I somehow had a store of gas in my stomach, tappable on demand. Not sure I could replicate that anymore.
What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or people?
Well, where do I start from? The people make this a great forum: knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and funny.
I enjoy the F1 thread in particular.
If you had £50,000 you had to spend in 72 hours, how would you choose to spend it?
Iíd give it to my children.
That's all folks
