After a long sabbatical (8 years at least) I will be returning to the fold and buying an Alfa sometime Aug/Sept of next year. Currently I drive the worst automotive purchase of my entire motoring career - a Colt CZT. Without doubt the most stultifyingly dull piece of Japanese tat you could ever wish for.
I have been an AROC member since 16 - and I am now 43!, owned 13 Alfas in total, the last being a 71 1750 Spider which I owned for 8 years and eventually part ex'd at Mangoletsi for a then new Fiat Coupe (loved that too). I even spent a time as AROC section secretary for the NW but unfortunately cannot make the NW meetings anymore.
I sat in the new Spider at Mangoletsis last week and it all became too much - it will just have to be an Alfa next time. Roll on 2008.
