which cars do you drive and why? 156 GTA and Golf 130 TDI. Alfa is my car, practical and quick with out of the box good looks, golf as its 5dr, derv and has some style for the missus. Perfect baby carrier when the time comes.
Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo? No - I have to admit Im not fussy when it comes to brands. If the car is good Ill have it. Ive had allsorts and dont feel any loyalty to any one brand.
What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo and…
….do you think it’s fundamental to own one to have the passion? To be honest I was never a fan of the 156 until I saw PHIL_Ds. After a quick spin I was bowled over and decided to get one as I had just sold my Audi S3 (dont start me on that). Ive always fancied a GTV tho and I love the 147 GTA (which I prob would have went for if funds allowed).
Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one? Yeah I love interacting with other enthusiasts both online and at freezing cold car park/track meets.
What do you like most about Alfas? The style and of course the V6.
What do you like least about Alfas? The worry it will fall apart!
What would be your dream cars? Im pretty humble so I would settle for an E46 M3 CSL and some form of bike engined kit car. Or an M5 and a lotus exige. Or about 100 other combinations lol.
What car would you least like to drive? a skoda. I dont care how good they are its a skoda (in contrary to my statement above)
What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)? My ideal drive WAS blasting for the stranraer boat along the A75 from carlisle. That road was made for the alfa. Nice long straights coupled with tight corners. Carl Cox CD in and on my tod.
Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us? I once owned a 20VT fiat coupe that shat itself (timing belt). I can laugh now (after about 4 years)
What interests do you have outside of Alfas? making babies.
Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc) *Edited*
Do you have a party trick? If so what is it? ask phil_ds mum.
What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or people? too early to say - seem an empassioned bunch and know the score with their cars.
If you had £50,000 you had to spend in 72 hours, how would you choose to spend it? A lotus exige and prob something sensible with the rest.
Nice way to say hello!
