Re: new to alfa....

Nice and clean !
You may be on to something here by calling your car "him".We(mostly males) call our cars as "bella" or "Alfa",not only do those names sound feminine in any language,but it's a known fact that our beloved cars require special attention and dedication,being also a bit capricious sometimes,just like all girls!!!
Buy hey,the same car is also "Romeo",and we all know just what kind of male Romeo was!
