which cars do you drive and why?

Evo VII FQ600 no other reason than its mucho fast and great fun to throw about

156 GTA (Get it on Wednesday) I love Italian cars ever since owning a fiat coupe 20VT…I personally think they are the best looking performance saloon available…Pace and grace…

Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?

Definitely…I love Italian cars and especially fast Alfa’s

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

I love cars and I really really love Italian cars, I was at an Alfa dealership one day with a friend looking for his new company car…There was a 156 GTA sitting there…I fell in love with it there and then, the sales man started it and that was it, decision made I had to have one…..

I don’t think you need to own one to be a fan and have a passion for them…Its in your blood…

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

Ohh yes indeed…

What do you like most about Alfa's?

They have soul

What do you like least about Alfa's?

Nothing yet

What would be your dream cars?


What car would you least like to drive?

BMW 116…..Only reason to buy one is because you are a badge snob…they don’t have any redeeming features

What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)?

Lake Garda, My fiance, Anything funky....

Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us?

I wrote off three cars in three consecutive years each Christmas after I passed my test

What interests do you have outside of Alfa's?

Cars, rugby and sailing

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

Been on TV a few times with sailing but nothing too exciting...

Do you have a party trick? If so what is it?

Nope afraid not....

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

Being able to get good advice before you buy a car…Owners forums generally have all the information that you need and this one is especially good

I also think this thread is one of the best ideas I have seen on a forum yet…

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

Straight to Autodelta with the motor and get the works done to it….The rest I would just spend on women and drink...

Thanks all
