which cars do you drive and why?
Alfa 156 2.4 JTD (I can only afford 1 car at a time
When I was younger my mum always had Fiats and my first 3 cars were Fiats too (2 Puntoís and a Bravo). I killed my Bravo in a flood in Dec 2006 and decided I was gonna get a Bravo HGT or a Fiat Coupe 20vt, problem was I couldnít find any nice ones. I then had a brainwave about owning a big diesel and remembered I liked 156ís when they first came out so I had a look and voilaÖI got me one! In hindsight, I shouldíve got the V6 since I donít really do that many miles (I commute on the bus).
Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?
Any Italian cars really.
What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo andÖ
Ö.do you think itís fundamental to own one to have the passion?
I have a passion for cars, not Alfa particularly. I have to admit that sometimes when Iím thinking about me owning Alfa, I get a broad smile across my face.
Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one?
errÖis this not one or do I need to pay?
What do you like most about Alfas?
Theyíre not common and they can make a grown man giddy with excitement!
What do you like least about Alfas?
Theyíre difficult to work on. What are the 156 sidelights all about?
What would be your dream cars?
What car would you least like to drive?
I think Iíve driven it Ė a Kia Mentor 2.
For you, whatís the most popular thread on AO?
roganís install threadÖIím so jealous.
What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)?
2 minutes drive from my house and Iím in the great Scottish countryside, nothing beats that for a driving experience. Iím not too fussed about the destination, itís the drive that matters.
Passenger Ė would rather concentrate on my driving pleasure but if a passenger was mandatory...a(ny) horny lady.
As for music, Iíve recently been dabbling in AC/DC Ė they surely do rawk.
Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us?
Bit dirty thisÖbut I was once getting intimate with a girl in the back seat of my Bravo during a fireworks display and she started relieving herself over me and the car, you can only laugh. I should say I finished what I started
What interests do you have outside of Alfas?
Love films, music, gaming. Have done quite a lot of traveling recently too which is enjoyable. Also reading non-fiction books.
Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc)
Iím an open book Iím afraid.
Do you have a party trick? If so what is it?
Downing a pint of lager in one.
What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or people?
Itís very informative, I can be a bit of a geek.
If you had £50,000 you had to spend in 72 hours, how would you choose to spend it?
Iíd buy a flat and pimp out the Alfa with the change.
If I was dying in 72 hours itíd have to be drugs, hookers and renting a lambo for 3 days Ė Iíve never done any of the 3 so I might as well go out with a bang.
