which cars do you drive and why? 156...and I talk to her every day
Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo? loved ‘em since childhood, suds, sprints, GTV’s – even 90’s & sixes (not Arna’s).
What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo and…
….do you think it’s fundamental to own one to have the passion? a girl I knew at school's dad had a Lancia Beta and my dad had an Austin Cambridge!!!……I was dead impressed and a general interest in italian machinery progressed to admiration of Alfa Romeo.
Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one? yes....though I am quitting AROC after a year. Staying with AO though.
What do you like most about Alfas? they are interesting, beautiful and just not so damn obvious as the usual stuff....
What do you like least about Alfas? …….I dunno….probably say the general worry….or the niggling things that go wrong…….an Avensis driver wouldn’t tolerate it (or understand, I guess).
What would be your dream cars? …….a well sorted Alfetta GTV6, maybe, driving in the lake district in the summer…..with my lovely wife
What car would you least like to drive? Ford Escort 1.1 LX (3dr) in pale green.....oh yes, you know who you are
For you, what’s the most popular thread on AO?
erm…….all of em.
The local (North East) threads - good crack, good meets.
Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us? oh gawd……I’ve killed a few (cars that is)…….I guess the worst one was when I told my mate that I could drive (I was 18 and had only previously done 200yds in a Citroen GS and nearly died) and he let me drive his Opel Manta (on a private road – ahem) and I swung it into a narrow lane, hit gravel and it slid sideways for ages, caught traction and shot off. I thought he might have recognised my genius – but it was obvious that I had truly pappered my pants.
What interests do you have outside of Alfas? footy, gardening, cooking
Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc) i am an insomniac
Do you have a party trick? If so what is it? singing “that old black magic” loudly without accompaniment. I'm really good.
What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or people? when tipsy, some of the things you all say make me giggle like a baby (a big, fat baby)
If you had £50,000 you had to spend in 72 hours, how would you choose to spend it? I’d buy a Cayenne and kill it with my bare hands
